Fundamentals: Straight Lines

Another longer drawing and this time I focus on starting out accurately with straight lines.

It’s not only easier to judged distances and angles with straight lines but its also easy to control the drawing of straight lines. When drawing curved lines it’s much easier make the curve too large or extend the length of the line well beyond what it should be. An accurate curve can be achieved by breaking it down into fewer and fewer straight lines. Using this techniques also lends itself well to giving the form more structure.

  1. That’s interesting about straight and curved lines. I think it could be some sort of metaphor for life, but I can’t figure out how to word it quite yet.
