Woven Texture Drawing Assignment

The pen is a powerful tool with a lot of possibilities. With a simple flick or carefully pulled motion, you can create a totally different look and feel. Better yet, it’s a ubiquitous object that you can use for a variety of artistic purposes. 

Learn nine pen textures to bring your drawings to life!

There are a lot of ways to create interest with pen and ink! Get to know nine common pen textures to enhance your artwork.

I’d suggest experimenting with different type of pen textures. Try making a chart to compare how the look — for this, I drew nine circles on a sheet of paper. 

Pen and ink textures to draw

1. Hatching

The hatching technique is the most basic of all the pen textures. To create it, simple draw a series of parallel lines on your page. They should not overlap. This works great for general sketching and when you want to convey lightly-toned shadows.

2. Crosshatching

This is the counterpart to hatching. Create one set of parallel lines and then go over them in the opposite direction with another set. Again, crosshatching works great for general sketching and creating deep shadows.

3. Stippling

Stippling looks fantastic, but it’s the most tedious of these nine textures. Start by making dots — many, many dots — and cluster them to create shadow. The farther apart the dots, the lighter something will appear. 

4. Contour 

Contour lines follow form. By doing so, they create a dimensional effect — doesn’t this circle look more rounded than the one filled with hatch marks?

5. Cross contour

The cross contour technique is very similar to crosshatching. It uses the same concept — layering lines in opposing direction — only you’ll follow the form. Here, I’ve created open, rounded lines in both orientations.

6. Wood grain

Wood grain is a texture best reserved for nature drawing or sketching furniture or buildings. To create it, draw lines that are parallel and not totally uniform. Some will be long and thin while others will appear more ovular. You can create a pattern from your imagination or look at a piece of wood for reference. Whichever you chose, I would recommend using a fine-tipped pen to draw it, as wood grain is usually fine.

7. Squiggles / random marks

Squiggles (or random marks) are a fun way to let loose on the page. Focus on loosely scribbling and creating a texture you’ve never seen before. The more that the squiggles overlap, the darker they’ll appear. It’s one way you can create depth with this texture. Try using it when you’re drawing a subject that is furry or fuzzy.

8. Angled / contrasting directional lines

If you’re taking a more decorative approach to your drawing, try being meticulous about it. I like making tiny marks on the page to build volume and visual interest. Place contrasting angled lines together to convey a sense of movement. 

9. Ink wash

Bust out a paintbrush for this technique. If you’re looking for a gradual, smooth texture, apply an ink wash over your page. Start with a light, watered-down pigment that you can paint over most of your page. Then, begin to increase the amount of ink that’s in your mixture and apply it to your existing layers. Finish the piece with the darkest (and most sparingly used) tone.

Putting it all together

Once you’re familiar with all of your pen and ink textures, try combining a few of them into one drawing. You’ll find that different techniques have their own unique advantages. The hatching, for instance, works great for the long bristle of these brushes, while cross contouring helps give the shaft a rounded, dimensional feel.

Assignment 4: Figure Drawing

Week 1
An easy way to learn to draw the full figure is by drawing the figure from a back view. Drawing a figure from the back minimizes details, stresses shape and contour, and eliminates the face. To make your composition interesting and exciting, emphasize an element or principle of design.

Week 2
Draw a person’s head and face using exaggeration to communicate emotion. Work from a live model. First use a pencil to make a general drawing. Note the shapes and planes of the face and how they fit together. Then continue over the drawing with a darker media. Utilize strong contrast to greatly exaggerate the areas you want to emphasize. Work from a live model and do not use a front or side view.

Week 3
Create a drawing of a small group of people. Utilize your skills in design to emphasize the negative space between them. Be creative when dealing with line and shape. Draw from life.

Week 4
Create a mixed media collage and then use figure drawing to add line, value, and color. Make sure the media does not overwhelm the drawing. Focus on strong weighted line, value, and contrast to pop the image. Draw from life.

Week 5
Use a brush and coffee to create a simplistic drawing of shadows (Do not work too wet or the paper will wrinkle). Once dry, come back in and emphasize line, shape and value with a dark contrasting media. Push darkness in the back in an exaggerated way to push the figure forward. Be expressive and work from life.

Spend a minimum of 1 hour on each drawing.
Assignment 5: The Power of Themes: A Diary of Shoes

Week 1
Look at the historical relevance of shoes.Think about their uses during a variety of time periods. Select a time period and create a drawing of shoes that reflects that time period. Examples: Roaring 20’s, Civil War. Draw from life and use the full composition.

Week 2
Look at the differences in gender. How are how their shoes are different. Create a drawing using a man’s and a woman’s shoe. Create an interesting design using repetition. Work from life.

Week 3
Select an artist that appeals to you. Create a shoe that would belong to this artist. Begin drawing from life and then go wild. Use your creativity. Example: Picasso, bright colors, wacky laces or Van Gogh, Subtle colors, pattern in swirls. Create an interesting composition.

Week 4
Create a mixed media collage and then use a shoe from an unusual point of view to add line, value, and color. Make sure the media does not overwhelm the drawing. Focus on strong weighted line, value, and contrast to pop the image. Draw from life.

Week 5
Use a brush and coffee to create a simplistic drawing of a pile of shoes (Do not work too wet or the paper will wrinkle). Once dry, come back in and emphasize line, shape and value with a dark contrasting media. Use darkness in the back in an exaggerated way to push the focal point forward. Be expressive and work from life.

Spend a minimum of 1 hour on each drawing.
Assignment 6: Interiors and Environments

Focus on line and design within your compositions. Refer to the principles of design: rhythm, movement, unity, variety, etc, to enhance your images.

Week 3
Create an interior drawing of your bedroom. Include yourself in the image somewhere. Focus on composition.

Week 4
Create a drawing looking down a hallway. Use color to extend the mood. Focus on some small in this space and make it spectacular.

ALL INTERIORS SHOULD BE DONE FROM LIFE. DO NOT USE PHOTOGRAPHS.


Assignment 7: Four Slides and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Each week you will take a slide and create a small work of art out of it. Each slide should fit a theme that you have selected. Choose a theme that is interesting and could be well illustrated in a small area.

Consider the following:
  • How can I use media in an interesting way?
  • Will my theme and style promote unity?
  • How could my slides be deconstructed in an interesting way?
  • Is my craftsmanship strong?
  • Are my designs compelling and strong?

Within the slide you will have to create a small work of art that would emphasize the theme, you would work directly on the foam core or on a small piece of paper of your choice.
