Because of my inability to draw straight and do perspective properly, coupled with my poor ability to draw cars or anything mechanical, I did a pencil sketch first to make sure I got the dimensions as best as I could. But I hate doing pencil drawings first. I mean I like that I can do a more precise drawing, but after I go over it in pen, whenever I erase the pencil marks, it picks up a lot of the ink. This happens no matter what pen or ink I'm using and is such a pain! I then have to go over all the lines again which is just creating another opportunity to mess up. Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent this? Maybe it's the eraser I'm using? I have one of those gray kneaded erasers. I like the spontaneous looseness of just starting with pen and seeing how it goes, but it sucks when I mess up one part of it and have to start over.
Anyways, time to think of the next pug job. Hmm.....
