Project 1- Line Art

The first illustration I did was just using simple line as well as variation in weight of directional line for shading and shadows, using a micron pen.The second one was variation in contour line weight using a sharpie.
The third one on here which was actually the las
t one i did, and you can tell because it is difficult to come up with 10 variations of the same shot, so this one is not my favorite. My goal with this one was to draw it more like a negative, high contrast, using a sharpie.
The fourth is using curved directional line with Micron.
The fifth is a vertical cropped shot using high contrast with a sharpie.
The sixth one is the first of three close-ups on each individual... th
is one uses just simple variation in in contour line, no shadows or shading. I l
ike this one, as simple as it is, she looks like a barbie doll in the face. This one uses sharpie only
The seventh one i posted here is actually the first one i did. It is a full shot of all three faces with simple contour line using micron but it also outlines some of the shadows.
The eighth one is the second close-up. I think this one was also very successful, on this I used one of my favorite techniques of mostly scribble for suggested shading and shadows. mostly using a micron pen but also around the eyes, ears and my hair.
These last two I scanned in such a way as though it looks like they are suppose to be two of the same picture, i didnt mean to, lol. But they are suppose to be seen as two separate illustrations completely.
The ninth is the third close-up, I'm also pleased with this one, it is mostly cross-hatching using micron but i went in with some darker values with a sharpie.
Number ten is a close-up of my lips, i did a close-up so that I might use the stippling process with a sharpie, i'm also very pleased with this one!
I had fun, we will see how the enlarged illustration goes. ;)


  1. Well, of course #10 is your mouth! I would recognize it anywhere. Your lips show that your face was a serious one at the time. Your lips looked pursed as you were no doubt in deep concentration. Good job!
