Howdy!
I work on 1/60th scale miniature sculpting and realized the other day that I don't do any warm-up exercises prior to sculpting my figures. I know y'all work in a larger scale, but the premise should be the same. I work primarily with two-part epoxy putties (green stuff or Procreate) and I don't want to burn through material just for warm-ups.

If I were drawing, I have sketching exercises and so forth I use to get warmed up, so I've started sketching different views of my figure just to get their shapes fresh in my head and spur some hand-eye coordination before I pick up any putty.

Do any of you have exercises or daily practices you do before you start working on a sculpt?

Thanks!
