Evil Island Lair Step 1

Now, pick up a trusty black pen or black marker. We're going to go over our pencil lines to make them nice and dark! After your lines are dry, erase your pencil lines (like one of Spider-Man's villains trying to erase Spider-Man from the world, so shall you erase your pencil lines from your paper).
