This sketch clearly shows the grid pattern that i use when starting a sketch. The grid helps me layout the sketch so i can make it fit the drawing paper just as i want it to, and also keep the major parts of the car in proper proportion. This grid is made of one inch squares, but half inch squares or smaller can be used to draw small parts such as the wheels to shore up proportions in any area of a drawing where high attention to detail is required. This grid was drawn darker than usual so you can see it. If you use a grid, you want it lighter and easier to erase. The lightly drawn grid is erased as i go, or sometimes i will erase it entirely after my contour drawing is done.
Just a fun sketch that i did last night while watching Adam Wainright of the St. Louis Cardinals pitch a complete game, two hit shutout against the Milwaukee Brewers. Cardinals won 8 to 0.
