in a gesture's search for the means to body.

Flesh comes in outlines tanned pale by fluorescense.

Don't let the lines bounding the space of a spectre
tremble. There is no room for error.

Shading may pose a dilemma, as shadows cast poorly
when substance is pressed to the wall.

Tracing over pencil in pen lends a certain finality to your linework.

Erase where the lead went astray.

As with all human forms, a talent is needed to get this figure breathing on paper.

Thus the art is most often left to those with a lively touch.
