Step 6: Chop and Tape

First make sure the picture looks good size-wise on your sketch pad, including some margin room.

Next cut out the image and remove the white border so you are left with 4 or 6 borderless pages.

Next tape these together so it all lines up. Use scotch tape and tape to either the front or the back.

A great thing about the PDF from Blockposters.com is that the margins on the pages printed from the PDF insure that the whole image gets printed on your printer. Simply remove the border from all of your pages and tape them together and you are good to go!

Thanks so much for this so helful! I really wanted to do a sketch of grav3yardgirl in one of her recent vids!
Please give me suggestions
<p>i wanted to learn to sketch not trace</p>
this is one i did of my daughter i (traced) the basic features very lightly then just shaded everything and built it up entirely by looking at the photo and sketching accordingly then blended smooth with blend stump and a little tough with a white pencil here and there
ive been a professional tattoo artist for over 16 years now the only way your gonna learn to draw without tracing and trust me when i say this is, practice practice practice. Practice drawing things that you would normally never draw practice drawing things that you never think anyone else would have you draw practice drawing the most random things you can see at that exact moment in the room things like a jar of Vaseline a roll of toilet paper a light bulb I drew a dremel tool with a roll of duct tape and Swiss Army knife one time you could get those random things they're going to develop your prospective and dimensions and the way you see shadows lights and darks and that's the only way you can ever train your hand to be coordinated enough with your imagination to exicute a one of a kind piece that only you could visualize beforehand. Now after 16 years as a professional artist and over 20 years as an artist in general it might finally starting to be able to just imagine an image and bring it to life even now a lot of times just out of sheer laziness I have to Google reference images and while I'm looking at the image on my phone draw my own interpretation of it on the paper but they only came from countless hours in years the practice mostly of times when I really didn't feel all that artistic I admit it does come a lot easier for some people there is a such thing as a natural I wasn't blessed as much as those people are most of mine skill set now came from just being lazy and trying to avoid all the preparation time it takes to completed some images. sorry if i sound discouraging i don't mean to be i love to see anyone inspired enough to sacrifice that much time and be determined enough to master any art form for no other reason or motivation than their passion for it cause we all know very few artists ever get rich in their line of work. or famous till well after their deaths.
<p>Hey Guyz.... What about This Sketch??? Sketching is my Passion... like my page </p><p>https://www.facebook.com/asad.art.official</p>
<p>Just for learning purpose as a beginner , Computer/Laptop screen/LEDs could display a picture in any order you want and tracing can also be done by putting paper on the display screen. I know it sounds bit childish but in case someone don't have that Light-Window or wanted to do it in evening or may printer get stuck ... </p>
<p>i've drawn dis pic n i want to learn shading....in a way to make it more realistic.....can u help me.....???</p>
<p>thats actually really good, ive been drawing for 4 years now and ive learnt that to make a really great realism drawing or whatever you have to have at least 3 pencils, i normally use a 8B, 4B and H to get the different gradient of colour. Anoother thing i would say is you need a bigger difference in darkness, so lets suppose the features of the face have to be a lot darker ... eg: shadows on ears and shadows around the nose, trust me you will see a great improvement once you darken the shadows a bit more , another thing i would say is never let any &quot;paper&quot; (blank spaces without coloring) of course it really depends on the pic ur basing from. However im pretty sure you will always find places you could draw in ... hope this helped</p>
<p>This video is unavailable. would you upload again when u are available please?</p>
<p>This would be a great way to make someone a nice gift</p>
<p>@thesparine Great post..!!</p><p>@meghna21 Found another video tutorial that also explains the same thing in bit more detail, I think it might help you. - http://www.jerrysartarama.com/art-lessons/Artists/Carol-Ann-Sherman/Carol-Ann-Sherman-How-to-Begin-Sketching-a-Portrait.html</p>
<p>Great instructable on how to sketch! You use a lot of the same materials that I use. Nice job.</p><p>http://www.dueysdrawings.com/</p>
<p>Time, time, time... Also need experiences. </p><p>IDEA: Use photoshop actions. Make it in 1 minute. If you want naturel look print %60 - 70 opacity. Then sketch it yourself and make %100. </p>
Yup, it says &quot;This video does not exist&quot;
This is great and all, and interesting techniques. But ... this isn't sketching. It's TRACING. It doesn't matter if you're going to lightly erase all of the lines after you trace it. It's still tracing. A real sketch is looking at a reference photo and using your own skill to sketch out the picture, NOT drawing your pencil over lines that are already there for you and claiming that you &quot;sketched&quot; it. That doesn't make art; it makes a lame copy. You didn't make it. You just copied a photo.
