Even the most experienced artists make mistakes in their work. Fortunately if you make a figure drawing mistake it doesn’t have to be completely removed to maintain the integrity of your drawing. Here are some clever techniques for fixing figure drawing bloopers:

  • Use a kneaded eraser (the advantage is that you have no eraser dust).

  • For correcting darker lines, use the end of a plastic eraser.

  • Rub out the mistakes by using a soft cloth.

  • Use your finger to smudge lighter blooper lines.

  • Use darker lines to trace over the lighter blooper lines without erasing.
