**Grid step**

You can print out the base construction lines and start drawing on tracing paper or you can draw the grid layout yourself using the following steps… Show more

1) Draw the upper border for the figure.

2) From the upper border, moving downward, tentatively determine the position of the head and draw an oval to represent its conditional size.

3) Draw a vertical line through the middle of the head. This will be the central vertical line of the figure.

4) From the upper border of the figure, draw six identical segments equal to the height of the head and one segment equal to half the height of the head. The last segment will act as the lower boundary of the figure. Through the boundaries of the segments, draw horizontal lines.

5) From the central vertical line of the figure, measure and draw:

• Three segments of equal head width – to the left of the line.

• Two segments of equal head width – to the right of the line.

Through the boundary of each segment, draw vertical lines. The extreme left and right segments will act as the vertical boundaries of the figure.
