It's a Tiny Sketchbook, for Drawings of Tiny Things
One of my uncles gave me this sketchbook a few years ago -- I just measured the pages, and I found out they are three inches wide by three and three-quarter inches long. Very small!
I have adapted to this notebook's extreme smallness by deciding I'm only going to draw still lifes of very small objects in it.
So far, everything is proceeding according to plan!
I have two drawings done, and I think they turned out really well!
The top one is of a Christmas ornament, a shiny round ball with a sort of swirly design painted on it with glitter, and the bottom one is of a ring I have in the shape of a scarab beetle.
I really like the bottom one. I tried using primarily stippling to shade it, and I think that was the right choice.
