Considering the somewhat negative reviews of the NeoLucida and restrictions/difficulties in its use, I have a suggestion.
  1. Take a photo of the scene, item, person.  Wouldn't have to be a gallery-quality image; a cell-phone would do.
  2. Import the image to Photoshop, or any other image processing software you may have on your computer/laptop/tablet/whatever.
  3. Add a new layer over the photo, and use a Wacom device/stylus/mouse to draw those areas of the image you need with a brush tool.
  4. Print the outline drawing only.  One can even scale the drawing to suit your needs; if larger than your printer can handle, print separate sections and tape them together.
  5. Voila!

This uses tools most of you already have, and requires no additional learning curves.

Cheers, b
