Line - Contour

Line - Contour - A contour line defines the outline of a form, as well as interior structure, without the use of shading. A fundamental basis of drawing, contour lines are usually the first technique children adopt to draw people, houses, and trees.

Instructions: In your sketchbook, draw the image of the boy in line only, but try to figure out how to show different plains of the face and how it curves.

Line - Gestural

Line - Gestural - The use of gesture line allows the artist to capture a subject's movement, form, and character. ... A gesture drawing, regardless of subject, portrays that essential form, position in space, and/ or movement of the subject absent of surface detail.

Instructions: In your sketchbook, use the picture of the dancer and draw a fun expressive line drawing that would start to give the feeling of movement.
