This was inspired by a joke with a colleague. We were talking about making estimates, and I quipped that we engineers assume everything is just a sphere of 1 meter in diameter as an estimate for just about anything. Which is not too far from the truth. So when we got talking to about drawing a horse – trust me, there was a natural progression from engineering estimates to drawing horses – I threw down a circle as my horse and cried “Done!” When they remained incredulous that a circle was indeed a horse, I quickly took that circle and added a few more likes into a form that I actually through worth fleshing out a bit more.
Admittedly, I am not super happy with the end results. But when is an artist ever happy with what they produce? Don’t bother replying, the answer is “never.” But as I appreciate that others have liked it, I thought it worth sharing both the process and end-results.
