  I print paused HD video screens or reference photos equal in size to my sketch paper. Then I use a pretend ruler made out of card stock to make accurate measurements, which is also kept under my drawing hand to prevent smudging. The result is a sketch of my young female figure model identical in size and proportions.

  I draw softly so mistakes can be easily erased. Obsessing about making mistakes causes my drawing hand to tense up, which increases the pressure of the pencil against the paper and often results in marks too difficult to erase.

  I make sure the sketch paper is clean of eraser debris, then spray the finished artwork with a few light coats of Krylon Workable Fixatif to prevent smudges. This product prevents you from erasing what is already drawn, while allowing you to continue drawing if you need to.

  I drew each of these portrait drawings in less than 5 hours. They were done in pencil on 8.5X11 inch paper from a sketchbook available at Wal-Mart for less than $9. I used ordinary No. 2 writing pencils manufactured by The Write Dudes that cost 10 cents each. Expensive art supplies are not necessary.
