Here is a favorite tip of mine…

It’s so simple and will save you time and paper. And calamities. The best part is you will have your drawings saved (in a messy way) that you can reuse later.

I use tracing paper. I draw everything in pieces and I can erase and erase and erase.  When I have my drawings the way I like them I can transfer them to my nice paper. You can move your drawings around to get a better visual of where to place things.  Once you figure where to place them, flip the tracing paper over and follow the lines.  You will have a reverse image.  If you don’t want to use the reverse image you will need to flip the tracing paper over before and trace the lines.  Then flip it again and trace to your paper.  You will have a clean drawing on paper without erase marks ready to paint.  Waaaa Laaaaaa!  I get my tracing paper from Walmart.  That is the cheapest I have found.
