Verifying Dimensions

Drawing freehand allows us to verify the precision of the drawing's proportions during the early sketching phases. When drawing freehand, the pencil should be held vertically with the arm extended before the figure, with the fingertip at one end and the thumb measuring at the other. This will help you confirm the proportional relationships of the real model. Froni these measurements we can draw by transferring those proportions onto the paper. Once the sketch is done, we once again place the, pencil over it to make sure that the proportional relationships between the different parts of the model are correct.

Auxiliary lines can be used when drawing a geometric shape, such as these vertical and horizontal lines, each of which serves as an axis and can be used as a reference point to compare distances.
