Understanding the Guide’s Color Code
The step-by-step guide comes with a color-coding system for your ease. Here’s what each color signifies:
- Red Color: Marks the lines you are to draw in the current step.
- Black Color: Highlights the lines drawn in the previous steps.
- Grey Color: Illustrates the basic proportion sketch.
With 8 steps, the guide will navigate you from drawing the basic proportion sketch to the final detailing. The last step would be to ink your sketch, giving it a finished and professional look. Make sure to let the ink dry completely before gently erasing the pencil sketch to prevent smudges.
