1 2

Motion it out.
Practice makes perfect.

Commit to one stroke
No hairy things!


Double hit if you can. Contrast and clarity


1 2

Plan it out.

Set up simple geometry to compose complex geometry.

Draw through.
Be a stickler. One off line could ruin it.

Don’t think you’re too good to draw through. It will never hurt.


Convergence/divergence! Watch the horizon.
Make sure your geometry is in the correct position.

4 5

Watch exaggeration.
Use it when scale calls for it, or an emotive drawing.

1 2

Hatch consistently. Practice!
Takes time.

Make sure the lines correspond to the plane they are on, too.



MOAR where you want viewer to look.
