After you have completed your picture, Close the Paper and on the outside, Trace the same picture you drew, except make a few modifications, for example in this pictures the ears are pointed make them flat, and any facial expressions you can change make the picture look even better.

Once finished Tracing the picture, cut two vertical lines up about 2/3 of the page, make sure the pic is in the center.
