WIP: Pint-Sized by The13thBlackCat WIP: Pint-Sized by The13thBlackCat
Apparently I am fucking terrible at sketching. It seems like every time I think "oh, I'll just do a cute, amusing little sketch", it turns into "lol this needs to be a real picture with a background and shit". Why.

Mrrsizha gets a lot of short jokes, living in Skyrim. The worst part about it is that she isn't even like, super short...she just happens to live in the homeland of the Nords, is all. If you're not a Nord or an Altmer, it's kind of inevitable that most of the populace will be taller than you.

Between that and the snow, it's almost enough to make her consider moving. Almost.

And yeah I know Vex isn't a Nord, but 1) I've always imagined her being tall and 2) I just really wanted to draw her. (The other option was Sapphire, and since she sort of hates everyone I don't think she'd've worked very well for this.) I'm guessing she was too busy lightening someone's pockets to hear the comment Brynjolf just made about Mrr being a tiny kitty, and is just now going "wait WTF is going on". Or something. Hell, I just wanted to draw her making that face; make up your own story to explain it.

In any case, Vex is also one of the people Mrrsizha likes enough to actively hang out with outside the Flagon. Well, provided you count constant rivalry and a mutual slightly grudging respect and admiration as liking someone, anyway. I assume Brynjolf's only allowed to be there because he's been sworn into silence about telling anyone they're actually friends. They have reputations to uphold, you know.

Also: holy crap I love drawing Mrr's pimp ring like nobody's business. gotta keep those bitches in line somehow amirite



referencing one's own hand is an exciting and often painful experience

last update before finished. I also have no idea what Vex's eye color actually is so I guessed based on the ref I used. Will actually figure it out before I finish this however. >>

There are some advantages to being "Pint-Sized" Quick ducking...

Oh, lots of advantages! People underestimate you since you're tiny and cute, so it's easy to take advantage of them, you're probably faster than most people, rain hits tall people first... =P

He tilted his glass toward her and nodded with "True Story." Floating over his head. "I couldn't agree with you more...Although I love Hurricanes...And other types of storm mother nature is beautiful...".

What an awesome picture! My Breton also has that issue. Why do we have to be so SHORT? 

Love the way you draw. That is one pretty kitty

For maximum adorable, of course. And maximum hilarity when our tiny little characters murder twenty Nord-sized bandits. That's my theory anyway. :D

Thanks! :3

I agree my Breton, Dorian is a young Werewolf type guy and let us just say that he has a tendency to murder people...Or if her gets really bored and wants to stur up trouble he goes straight to the guards and steal all their stuff while walking passed them HEHE Dorian is a 16 year old Breton who is cursed with the Werewolf shifting thingy and he was orphaned for a long time :I

You're welcome Meow :3 

Yes, I love it when Bretons kick everyone's butts in battle, even though they're small you can really adapt them to any class.
Most commonly they are mages, there are some warriors (Forsworn) and thieves (Me, Cynric Endell, Mercer Frey and Delvin Mallory)

Makes me think of my character Ajax and my Khajiit Khaza who isn't as short as Mrr but he's atleast to Ajax' chest and that makes Ajax grin at him sayin' "Aww such an adorable cannibalistic kitten!"

"Ajax, I will eat your face in your sleep. If you weren't my friend I'd of killed you by now."

"Naw come 'ere little kit!"

"Die!"

Grips told me to remind Mrr that being short makes easier to reach coin purses hanging from belts. And little hands help too. That's why kids are excellent pickpockets. I would get me a gang of them, Penguin style, if only it was barely legal...

The13thBlackCat Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, beleive me, she knows. Even if she's not the best at pickpocketing. She wouldn't even care about her height if every Nord (and the occasional High Elf) she runs across didn't feel like pointing it out. :T

But she's so cute and delicate-looking!! Why are short women so sensitive about their height? She's all feminine, whereas us big people are awkward and manly. :( So much better for her that she's thought of as feminine and shocks people with her badassery than to look like a badass and be a weakling!

:iconthe13thblackcat:
The13thBlackCat Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, she honestly probably doesn't care. It's just that if I've learned anything about Nords from Morrowind, it's that they make the same jokes over and over and over again, and that gets kind of annoying after a bit. Especially when the first two things people notice about her are 1) she's a Khajiit and 2) she's a SHORT Khajiit. :T

It also makes it hard to reach things on the top shelf.

I am always helping with the high shelves. Seriously, strangers at the grocery store? No prob, I'll get that yogurt for you little Indian woman. I'll even get the best date. (True story.) :P

They all make the same jokes over and over again, don't they...not that I don't know why, but it would be annoying!

>_< I think my OC's Sarah, Talitha, Aylen, AND Nya all get that. Sarah in particular, since she is 160cm tall (5.2-ish), while her husband is right about 200cm (6.5-ish).

The big "sword and board" tank and the diminutive catgirl acrobat. >_< Still not sure how that happened.

I think I have only one other pair of characters in my head with a major height difference. I don't know their actual heights off the top of my head, but she just barrrrely manages to come up to his collar bone, IIRC. :| I mean, admittedly he's pretty tall, but still. Damn. And she's this delicate, sheltered little princess while he's the kind of guy who climbs on top of monsters bigger than elephants so he can stab them in the face. But at least he doesn't joke about her height. Probably because it's too easy.

I get height jokes a lot myself IRL. :T The worst part is that I'm 5'3" (and a half...), so I'm perfectly average height for an American woman. But I used to be the tallest in my friend-group growing up, and then I just stopped growing and everyone else...didn't. They haven't let me forget it since. >_>

Umm... only I want to tell you that if I ask you this... I don't want that you character or you feels offended.

How tall is your character?

I'm not exactly sure, since I'm terrible at guesstimating heights, but I'd say she's probably about 5 foot or 5'1", maybe.

Do you think 2.00 meters is allright for a characters, or is too big?

The13thBlackCat Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, it depends on the character, but there's no reason it wouldn't be perfectly alright. :) I have a character roundabout that height myself. (But he's supposed to be really tall, so.)

Oh, I'm not complaining about that. Looking good is top priority. It's just very difficult to actually sketch something when I seem to be physically incapable of it. At least, when I actually set out to sketch.
