Find the accurate and large photo of the head of a deer and make it black-and-white, using any graphic editor. On the black-and-white copy of the photo draw a grid with identical cells of the average size. The grid will help you to be guided with drawing and to find places with which you began and on which finished this or that fragment.


Find the initial point of drawing which will help to understand, whether drawing will be located on paper (usually it is the top part of the drawn figure). Transfer measurements of a grid and a grid to paper for drawing and define, from what point you will start drawing.
