Today I didn’t have time or inclination to get supplies out, so I decided to try some Single Line Drawings. As you can see from the featured image, some of them used more than a single line.
I started out by copying some I googled… some are famous pieces are some are things people have posted. Because I was trying to figure it out, and copy others, I really wasn’t as free with my pen as I should have been.
Turns out, the female form really is kind of fun to draw. I just copied these from actual “art”.
The only ones I did myself are the cats and the jingle bells. Still, I was happy with my results, and am going to try this again. I’m looking forward to it, actually!
What I learned:
- move quickly for better results
- see the shapes and lines, not the item
- copying line placement doesn’t really work for this
- line drawings aren’t scary at all. Even famous ones look like scribbles, and they are beautiful.
