Bigger drawings and lines and circles? Answered

Any tips on drawing straight lines and circles on a larger scale. Sometimes I draw on paper a lot bigger that A4 such as A2 and A0 size and these can be difficult to rotate to do straight lines and circles.

I think that circle trick where you use your finger as a pivot point might work at a larger scale. If you pivot on your pinky, move the paper in a circle, and keep the pen tip in one place, you should be able to get some pretty big circles.

As far as straight lines, practice, practice, practice. keep trying to get them parallel, remember to move the paper to the best orientation to get a straight line, and use quick, smooth strokes.

It also helps to draw little tick marks as targets.
