Continuous line drawing helps us follow the edges of things with our eyes without being so concerned about the final product. It helps us SEE like an artist.
For this project, you will draw a continuous line of 3 faces in your family. If you can't find a volunteer, you can do your own face 3 times.
You'll need a thick or thin Sharpie, a mirror, Prismacolors, and a piece of white drawing paper from your sketchbook.
1. Look at your own face in a mirror. Create a continuous line drawing in the top half of the paper. Don't lift your Sharpie until you're done.
2. Grab a friend or family member to model. Rotate the paper 90 degrees. Draw another continuous line drawing of their face, overlapping some of the lines with the first drawing.
3. Repeat step #2.
3. Choose 4-5 colored pencils. Fill in some of the spaces, using all the colors throughout the picture to create unity. The colors don't have to be realistic.
Definition of UNITY:
Unity refers to how different elements of an artwork or design work come together and create a sense of wholeness. It can be achieved through proximity, simplicity, repetition and continuation.
If you are participating in the Inktober challenge, try to get 4 or 5 of the words drawn this week (3-4 per page in your sketchbook.) Sketch them first in pencil, then ink over your pencil with your Micron pen. Then erase the pencil lines. I expect a good amount of care and detail, not quick and sloppy drawings, if you'd like to be eligible for the prize at the end.
