I personally don't like 3x3 grids, I prefer 2x2, which also makes it easier to split into another 2x2 grid, having 4x4 grids. I just think it is easier that way.


For the drawing to scale I used a Blue Thin Marker and for the grids and scaled replicas I used HB pencil.


Hi, Rafel! Sure - whatever works best for you is fine! the 2x2 is definitely easier for easier icons - the more complex it gets the more fields you might want to have in your grid. If the 2x2 works well for you than that is the best one!
