In my previous post, I promoted an article I’d written for EmptyEasel that described how to put a grid on a reference photo using IrfanView. The logical follow up to that, it seemed to me, was to describe how I create drawings using the grid method.

How to Create an Accurate Drawing Using the Grid Method, is the result of that decision. I use the same subject for the drawing that I used for the reference photo article so you can see how I progress from a grid on a photograph to a full-size drawing. Follow along with step-by-step illustrations as the drawing moves from beginning almost to completion.
