Pear shapes 1
After I've traced the image onto a new paper I tape that up in the window and place yet another clean sheet on top of that. On this one I only need to roughly trace the girl's but and leg and the shape of the throne. This gives me a space to design a pet for her. I know how big I can make him and how to wrap him around the edge of the chair and the girl's leg without covering her up or otherwise conflicting with the image.
I start, as I usually do, with pear shapes.
Drawing with a soft vine charcoal I can scribble out some details, wipe them off and re-scribble until I like what I have.
Once I've got something I like I can place this sketch back in the window and hang my new tracing of the girl in front and trace the monster onto the drawing with her.
And Bob's yer Uncle!
