The scan is horrible, but it was the best I could do. I have a second rate A4 scanner which is cumbersome and makes life difficult, and the original drawing is larger than an A2 

On top of that the off proportions. In part it was working with a larger paper size that I am unaccustomed too (and on top of that having a tiny workspace and no easel … I did discover that I can turn my old TV into a computer screen, which made life a little easier, but the quality is lost. Still it was good to try and get a basic line without being squished in a corner.

The other side of poor proportions … black paper means you can’t cheat XD … I should be ashamed of myself but when I find myself having issues with sizes I trace an outline of the most important parts then move from there. You can’t do that with black paper … plus a drawing from negative space is difficult, I enjoy the challenge though.

The drawing itself isn’t bad, I like it … just not the scan or when you put it beside the original photo XD
