Project 7 - enlarging

I practised enlarging several objects from small thumbnail sketches into large A4 - A3 scale images. The first time I tried scaling it square by square  but found the lines didn't sit right (especially curves), as they were stopped and started ... so my second attempt was to draw line by line using the grids as guides.

Whilst I think this is a useful tool, I felt it would only be useful for a rough sketch - as when enlarged, you notice more errors with something than when it was small! It might be useful for copying something in rough pencil, then looking at an original image / the real thing for filling in the details. I made the mistake of using pen with my images, so couldn't really go over them and correct the proportions after drawing them.
