Step 4: First final contours

Now you take the drawing pencil in hand. Use it to draw the permanent contours. A fine fiber pen, for example, is suitable for this. Draw the silhouette of the head and shape the neck with the shoulders. The arms now get their final shape by connecting the shoulders, elbows and wrists in a sweeping manner. This template shows you how to do this. You can also indicate the course of the hair with the pencil.
