Grids can be used to copy existing drawings/illustrations precisely . The crossing guidelines (see question below) can be treated as coordinates and consequently an accurate copy can be made.
A symbol used on packaging to show that the product is suitable for vegetarians is seen below (left hand side). Use the grid system on the incomplete drawing on the right to add detail and colour/shade.

 
 
 
THE STAGES OF COPYING
 
Illustrations, including logos/symbols, can be copied accurately using the grid system. The stages outlined below show how a symbol can be copied.
   
STAGE ONE:
Complete the outer circle using a pencil and compass.
STAGE TWO:
Use a compass to draw guidelines. These are faintly scribed arcs that will contain the printing ‘VEGETARIANS’.  The guidelines can be removed later.
STAGE THREE:
When arcs/guidelines are drawn, a sharp pencil is used to add the letters. The guidelines can be removed later. The remaining detail is also added.
STAGE FOUR:
Colour is then applied using coloured pencils.
