Studio Ghibli's Totoro in a tree

Warm-up sketches are a beneficial exercise to begin the workday, focusing on a simple idea to sketch to focus energy and release creativity. Warm-ups help begin the day on something outside of the day’s tasks; allowing creativity to take control for a few moments before the day’s rush. They provide a brief exercise to energize your creativity and experiment on a topic or theme that may sit outside scheduled projects that will dictate the rest of the day’s activities. 

This illustration is from  Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki’s film My Neighbor Totoro and was created using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
