Default Copy detailed pictures

Ok here is a really good TIP on how to copy REALLY detailed pictures..anyhting from forests/cities to humans or mashines
The Guide works it's best if the picture is in black-white
Even the most untalanted kids will do well in this easy guide

What U need:
Pencil, eraeser and stuff
An A3-paper! you have to have an A3 in order to do the best result!
Ruler ( that thing you do lines with :P )

Step 2.
Ok find your picture..
I chose this one. It's Flea from red hot chili peppers



Ok, see the picture? pretty cool, huh? Well, now do a "grid-net" with your pencil and ruler. Like this only with pencil and not like me on the computer :P

Also do like 1, 2, 3, 4... on the sides
both vertically and horizontelli ( do'h on my english :P )

1 2 3 4 5 6 ...


Do that over the whole page. Let's say it was 15 Vertical and 20 Horizontal. Just devide 20 through 15. What makes that? 1,3 of course!
Now take out your A3 (finaly :P). Now make a grid-net on your white paper with 1,3 cm between the lines!
Simply draw 15 Vertical lines and 20 horizontal lines with 1,3 centimeters between the lines softly with a pencil

Now simply draw the picture square for sqaure IN DETAIL! This simplyfies the process with 90%! But be careful, though! always eraese (?) the lines otherwise it will be ugly :P

the result will come up soon

I thought everyone else knew about this? I used this method to draw a cow for the Rodeo Art contest at school. Others in class tried free hand and got lower places. This really is a good way to get accurate drawings. But can u learn anything from using this grid method?

First of all, a "Rodeo Art contest"? So like...you staple a piece of paper onto a bull and the person who can draw the most on their paper in 7 seconds without falling off wins! And second of all, it would help if you (akaast) drawed that pic and uploaded the result or something so you can see how well it works. :P
