Drawing Techniques- Line thickness

Changing the line thickness in a drawing creates a more interesting and dimensional piece.  Making a line thicker can pull a section forward making the thinner line recede.  A thicker line can make a section look more weighted like someone putting more weight on one foot than another.  I also do this in creating leaded glass windows-  using thicker and thinner lead within a piece to move areas forward and backward.
