So what I like to do is just create at first a very foxy version of that design. Take that again, throw that into the marker, and you really don’t need to be amazing at drawing. You just need to get the point across. It is really the most important thing. So this will kind of give you an idea as to what it is going to look like. I will take my big black “sharpy” and kind of create that outline. Now, from there play with that idea for a while. That is just the base, that is where we will start. And everything is boxy, everything is square right now but eventually we take this and read again. We trace these lines. Now, we got some room to play so let us say we don’t want hard edges there but we want more rounded edges so we take that line and put a little bit more roundness to it, and the same with up here. Now, we go over this with marker (demo) We are just softening everything. And we take that outline (demo) and we do it with contour lines to help define the shape a little more. So that is basically giving us more definition to the shape. And that is the basic initial sketch.
