I guess you could see this as a follow on from tips by newepug and oldskool_rider but this one’s different in that it’s even more destructive and in addition to a changing bag (or darkroom if you’ve got access) requires only any sharp instrument.

Next time I’d like to try some simple drawings that wouldn’t be affected by the orientation.
