No, that just the texture of the the pad of paper I was using. The drawing isn't that big. Maybe two inches high by about 3 inches long, so the grain of the paper is really visible because I've zoomed the camera way in.
I do tend to draw small pictures. I've been trying to get them bigger, but I just feel like I can relate the different parts are the drawing better when the drawing is small. This Skootaloo is part of a large picture I'm going to draw, so I wanted to get some Skoot practice.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm trying to improve as an artist, so it means a lot to me!
