Transfer the Sketch to Paper

To transfer the drawing onto the paper surface I chose, in this case, a sketch book page, there are a few ways of doing this step. One method is to scribble a soft leaded pencil all over the back of the rough sketch and tape it to the surface of the sketch book, and trace the lines again with a harder pencil, thereby transferring them onto the drawing surface. Another is to use the laborious grid method, which I won’t explain here but it will be easy to find online. The third is to project the drawing on the surface of the paper and gently outline your main guidelines as I have done here.
