Line Drawing Techniques

  1. 1. LineDrawingTechniques
  2. 2. Line can be used to show shape, contour, texture & tone.
  3. 3. HatchingWe can create value by using linear hatching.
  4. 4. HatchingThe closer the lines are, the darker the value.
  5. 5. HatchingPressing harder or using a bigger nib ormarker, also gives a darker appearance.
  6. 6. Crosshatching Crosshatching uses layers of hatching placed at an angle. Usually the 1st layer is vertical, the next horizontal and the next diagonal.
  7. 7. Contour Hatching The direction of line helps suggest contours. When crosshatched, they suggest cross-contours. Hatching which follows a contour can also help to make objects appear more 3D.
  8. 8. ScumblingScumbling uses layers of smallscribbled marks to build up valueand texture.Varying the direction adds moreinterest than a simple circularscribble.
  9. 9. Random Hatching Random hatching uses layers of short, straight marks. Various textures result depending on whether these short hatches are applied vertically, at right angles, following a contour or at random angles.
  10. 10. StipplingStippling uses tiny dots tocreate value.The closer together the dots,the darker the tone
