Sketchy drawing of an old man - Old Man Drawing

A warm-up sketch of an old dude I did this morning... drawn in Sketchbook Pro, touched up in Photoshop. When I began this piece I had no idea what I wanted to draw... I just started and this old man drawing is what ended up coming into existence.

It's amazing how doing warm-ups first thing in the morning sets the tone for your entire day, production-wise as well as attitude-wise. No matter what else happens the rest of the day, or how much time you spend creating art for your clients, you'll have already done something for yourself.

The talented Bobby Chiu mentioned in one of his recent drawing videos that he keeps a sketchbook on his nightstand and he does a sketch first thing in the morning before he even gets out of bed.

I believe I have underestimated the benefits of warm-ups and I need to get back into this habit...

Anyone else do this regularly?
