Things to Remember:
Once you’ve started into the process of working on a particular piece, use straight lines to check proportion and any possible drawing problems that may be developing. Keep checking your values, color choices and line quality as you go along. Look at your piece in a mirror to find drawing problems, or view the piece upside down, which can give you such a fresh perspective that you will see things you usually wouldn’t even notice.
And last, once you’re as happy as you’re going to be, remember to sign your name proudly, and in a professional way, and begin enjoying that you’ve turned a plain piece of paper into art! Good luck, have fun and, as always, happy coloring!
