This is my submission for the Artist Training Grounds’ week 9 bonus theme: draw a tiny pony. And by tiny, I mean physical pencils only and literally drawing as small as humanly possible.
Included is a rather large picture (not allowed to scale) containing my different attempts (yea, I got a bit carried away). I started out drawing bangs, horn, mane, nose, an eye, a blip for a cutie mark, ear, tail, body and legs. That’s for the 0.7cm wide by 0.6cm tall Twilight. My smallest (second from the bottom) drawing, which is as small as I could get it before it started looking like a blob of nothing (0.2cm wide by just a little under 0.15cm high), had me only drawing bangs, horn, body, legs and tail. The right side, which is unfortunately partially covered by my ruler to get a good measurement comparison on the best sketch, actually shows the top barely being recognizable as Twilight and by the bottom, if you know it’s Twilight, you can probably tell it’s her silhouette, but overall it’s probably barely even recognizable as a pony.
Oh and an interesting thing to note: these all look fairly sharp on my sketchbook, but this all looks blurry on a 720dpi scan. If I wanted to get it any sharper, my crappy scanner wants to take an hour or more.
