Once completed, the preliminary sketch is transferred to the surface, in this case a Strathmore drawing paper with very little texture. Very few outlines are added as the photo is very detailed and easy to work from. If you aren't confident with line drawing, tracing some key reference points can be useful, as accuracy is important to the success of realist drawing.
