Here are some suggestions: In the first few steps, hold your work up to a mirror. Sometimes the mirror shows that you've twisted or distorted the drawing off to one side without being aware of it. At first you may find it difficult to draw the lines, the egg shapes, the ball shapes, or sausage shapes, or just to make the pencil go where you wish. Don't be discouraged. The more you practice, the more you will develop control.
