The Nostromo Approaching LV-426
I think this image demostrates well how drawing larger than the final product is intended to be is a good technique because the smaller version you see above looks quite a bit better than the original full-size in my opinion. It also reminded me that even when just practicing, use the good paper. And use a ruler for the borders.
