Contour Line Drawing (outline and major details)

1. Draw a contour line drawing of an object at least five times (having some different sizes and in different perspectives). You should have at least 3 areas of overlapping.

2. With a ruler, create at least ten intersecting lines through your artwork.

3. Inside the “pieces” (where the lines outline a shape), create various throughout your artwork. Try and create all 7 values you did on your value scales (you ARE able to leave blank areas for the lightest possible value). Option: you can create a gradient in some pieces, where it goes from light to dark in one section.

4. Use a blending stick to make some areas smooth and an eraser to clean up any unwanted smudges.
