Basic Element of Art #1 : Lines by DShou Basic Element of Art #1 : Lines by DShou



The first guide image I made that'll be explained in Art Journal Part 2 - Once I get all the guides up, should be around the time I get the actual journal part up to supplement these with context and exercises.

This is quite basic, but it's for the people who don't know about them yet after all.

There's 15 Element/Principals of art, so about 15 of these sheets will be made.



Element of Art : Line - Shape - Form - Color - Texture - Space - Value

Principles of Art : Movement - Unity - Harmony - Variety - Balance - Contrast - Proportion - Pattern & Rhythm

This is great! I'm really looking forward to the other parts of this tutorial-series.
This is very helpful. I found that looking at the end-point of the line really helped - so simple, yet so effective.
Thank you for taking initiative of making these.

What does it mean to be loose when drawing, and why is it advised?

Loose? I didn't write loose here so uh, which part are ya having trouble reading?

But uh, loose in general? Well, it's good to draw in a relaxed state, not stressing out over details or to sternly try and get the drawing down. More relaxed means you're less likely to accidentally shift the pen around from a minor disturbance.

Oh, because I hear it's a beginner mistake, and I didn't know what it meant. No, I didn't see it here, but I fiured you would know.

ah, well pretty much what I've said then, when you draw, stay relaxed. Don't press too hard, don't concentrate too hard either. You're more prone to mess up from over-concentrating, and as well, drawing in a relaxed state helps you get your own style of linework/coloring in as well. This kind of applies to anything, not just drawing, because concentrating, usually only good for a short burst, people are more efficient when they do things in a relaxed state. Problem with training under concentration is that staying in concentration the whole time isn't exactly ideal, and is much more frequently stressful.

Could you talk more about the implied lines? Like hen should one use them?

Implied lines are just when lines vary down to 0% density, 0 width. I'll discuss line weight and it's effects later, for now I'm just addressing what the 15 parts are and some tips on doing em
