Nothing special here, just areally small drawing, smaller than a regular piece of paper.  Probably will move it later to scraps.

My friends gets surprised that i can draw this small with tons of details, and no blue pencils, lightbox or a 4h pencil.

Ive always tell them this story:

It was a comic convention and i had my works in  A3 paper size(10x 15 inches), then one teenager came to see me and said, giving me his back and looking at me, like a weird evil character in anime, " no wonder how he can add so many details because his pages are huge".  Some how that pissed me off.

So next year, i was on same convention, but this time, my portfolio were A4 letter size (8x10 inches), the guy opens my portfolio, he was speechless and he run away, And before he runned away i said "And i made all this drawings with my 0.5mm mechanical pencil and not a 0.3mm like the one you use" He saw my face smiling from ear to ear. He runned away and never saw him since then.

That has to be one of my victories i love the most. Remember the only way to shup up trolls, its with a "hard year of work".

Cool story!

And a cool exercise in there too :meow: noted, I will try drawing on a smaller canvas with a big pencil/pen/brush, just to improve my sketching skills later on when I can actually do it well to begin with and maybe one day, I'll be able to sketch somewhere near as well as you :dummy:

i have a similar story. i went to a cosplay convention for 3 years in a row, every year somehow ending up in the same costume as this one annoying dude. well, every year he would insult me on how my costume was 'simple and enjoyable, but lacked any motivation or creativity'.

my answer? next year i dressed as Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach in a half mask Bankai and brought a real Tensa Zangetsu. he somehow dressed the same, minus the mask. i put on my mask and drew my Zangetsu, and when he saw the blade glint he ran off. have not seen him since. that was two years ago.

I love that little story, that's why I kind of like "bad" critics, especially from people who are not into drawing, they see things that I can't so it just help me improving.
I really love how your design your character's outfits, I usually stare at the body and my mind goes blank because I absolutely have no idea what kind of clothes to draw and it's really frustrating.
