Baluchistan Pygmy Jerboa-Postcards for the Lunch Bag

#DoodlewashJanuary2021 prompt: Small

Did you know that the Baluchistan Pygmy Jerboa is the smallest rodent in the world? Weighing in around 3.75 g (0.132 oz), they look like a cross between a mouse and a kangaroo!

I didn’t have a good reference photo, so it was cobbled from several different photos. It’s harder to get detail and shading correct, so a simpler more cartoony technique works well. It’s faster, too!

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
