- Make sure to have a good, sharpened pencil. You can keep a few other pencils near in case the pencil you're using breaks.
- Make sure when you're following the first three steps that you draw with pencil to make your lines light. Doing this is appropriate because you can erase it easily without having any marks left over.
- Before starting, you should test out your pen/marker on a piece of scrap paper to see if it works. You should also test out your pencil to see if the lead is strong, and your eraser to see if it will leave a dark mark on your paper or not.
