English term or phrase: statted up
Un diseñador ha realizado varios diseños para ilustrar un artículo de una revista, basados en una carita incorporada a un signo de interrogación.

"This time, the facial features were hung on the outside of the mark, and after a few trials to calculate their positions and shapes, I statted up the sketches and filled them with black marker.

Hola Clarisa:

¿Existe la posibilidad de que sea "stetted up"?

A lo mejor no tiene NADA que ver, es sólo una sugerencia más. Te transcribo lo que da el wordreference como definición de "stet":

"stet [stt]
1. a word or mark indicating that certain deleted typeset or written matter is to be retained.
Compare {dele}.
vb. stets, stetting, stetted.
2. (tr.) to mark (matter to be retained) with a stet.
[Latin, literally: let it stand]"

Luego lo que da como equivalente EN>SP:

"stet (vi)
(Typ) vale; deje como está"

Sería algo así como "marcar" o "delinear"

No sé si será de alguna ayuda para vos, es sólo un tiro.

Saludos #:)
