Working large may be the best way to get in the details.

I am teaching a class this week as summer has come upon us. In the class I notice a lot of people like to draw very small. One girl drew so small that all the assignments we did that day fit onto one sheet of paper. I keep telling them to draw bigger, but kids love to draw small for some reason. If you are doing that try drawing bigger. It will allow you to include more details and your picture will come out stronger because of the extra detail.
