1. What is a contour drawing?

2. How does variation of line thickness affect a drawing?

3. What are the three types of lines in regard to composition?
- Actual Line – an actual line is like it sounds; it’s like your usual lines that are right in front of you, and you don’t have to search for it.
- Implied Line – an implied line would be like a row of cars, even though it’s not a connected line, your eye still follows the row of cars like a line.
- Imaginary Line – an example of this would be an arrow. The arrow points in a direction but there’s not a line following it; your eye just naturally follows the imaginary line created by the arrow.
4. What is hatching?
-Hatching is a drawing technique made of lines that usually cross like a chain link fence. Depending on how close or far apart the lines are depends on the effect you get. For a deep, dark look, you would make your lines closer together, and for a light look they would be more spaced out.
5. How can pixilation affect a curved line displayed on a monitor?
