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.
