The most important concept in our Drawing program is “P-I-E”: Pencil-Ink-Erase.
Start drawing lightly in PENCIL, preferably using dot grid or graph paper. Take your time and follow each step, reading the tips in each box. Many of our lessons show the step you should be doing in RED lines, rather than black ones. (not all of them, but some)
Next, INK over the pencil marks of your best efforts. A good black fineliner, or other color, is perfect for this. (Prismacolor or Micron .03mm pen is a favorite).
And lastly, ERASE the pencil marks, but only after the ink is dry. You will be happy with how clean your drawing looks after you brush away the eraser crumbs.
If you would like to transfer your drawing to your bible, without drawing it again, you may TRACE your inked drawing into your bible with a PENCIL, then INK, and lastly ERASE (some tips shown at right)
You may color the finished drawing in your bible or draw and color on vellum or other specialty paper to make a “tip in” for your bible.
