Intermediate Design 2 - Pencil

Draw on the lines as illustrated in the diagram with a pencil. Draw these lines very lightly, and they will not show up in the final design.

Pencil Front (1) shows the egg divided into sixteenths. You start by drawing one long line around the longest part of the egg, until it meets up with itself. Next, draw a long line at a right angle to this one, until it meets up with itself. Do this twice more, at 45 degree angles. Top (1) shows how the egg should look from the top. Lastly, draw one line around the middle of the egg. Now the egg is divided into 16 equal sized parts.
Front (2) shows the egg with 2 lines parallel to the line around the middle of the egg.

Pencil Front (3) shows the egg with parallel lines drawn around pre-existing lines. Also, draw the star on top of the egg. Top (2) shows how this should look.
Front (4). Draw the stars, as shown.

Check out the diagram to see how the stars are done, its not as difficult as it might first seem. (1) First, draw 2 parallel diagonal lines. (2) Then, draw an identical set, going the other way. Now start to draw in the points of the star. (3) Draw a single line from the outer tip of one of the diagonal lines, to the midway point of the inner box, as shown. (4) Do the same thing on the other side. (5) And finally, complete the star by following steps 3-4 for the other three sides.

And now, move on to white!
