Description:

Part of my daily routine since the mid 1990’s has been a series of back stretches I have to do in the morning and before bed if I am to maintain any kind of flexibility and comfort in my back. It is non-negotiable and skip them my back starts reminding me very quickly. It is now a part of my life and will be for the rest of my life.
 
To lesser degree, before I embark upon a day in studio working I will do some quick sketches to get my head in the right place before proceeding to more important things. Sometimes they are complete throwaways and the end up in the trash. Sometimes they end up being concepts that can be refined and turned into future content, and sometimes they’re worth posting and showing on their own merit.
 
These are 4 fast sketches I did this morning. For slightly different reasons Applebloom in my Equestria dreamscape also needs to do regular stretching sets. In her case it’s to maintain flexibility so she doesn’t injure herself while sparring and working out. So usual before breakfast she spends 30 minutes doing her morning ritual.
 
I hope you like what you see. Please help make more art like this possible by supporting me at Patreon
