Warming up

No project wips to post this time so I'm showing you what I do to warm up pretty much every morning. It not only helps me hand and brain get moving it gives me a chance to experiment with different things and work on value and shape. It should help me with color sense to once I start doing more color. A little tedious maybe but the practice is a good thing.

Yeah I'm a little late on the ball, as usual, with this post. It's also a tiny image (sorry). This is my work in progress montage for a redesign of Frankenstein's Bride for the weekly CHOW on

The inspiration for my take on her came a little from Halloween Horror Nights. They had a Frankenstein haunted house this year with a Steampunk theme so I figure "Oh yay, Shiny!" and started sketching on the spot. I know there are problems but at least I can say it's finished without feeling like a horrible liar. And hey, she doesn't have two left feet anymore! (Thanks to the astute observation of my boyfriend. )

I have posted the completed piece on my DeviantArt page if you're interested.
