Tonight was the first night of drawing class and we practiced blind continuous line as well as continuous line drawing. I went on to explain if you continued on with describing the form in cross contour that you could end up with a likeness of the object being rendered. Where an object is rounded, your drawing implement has to caress that form and emulate roundness, where it is flat the medium has to flat line it. All an object really is is a whole lot of contour lines sitting next to one another. This is called modeling in the form of an object. I happened to check out Antsketch’s drawing for today and he had done the same technique with figure drawing. Two different takes on the same technique.
