Linear line illustration (LLI), or continuous line drawing, is an adaptable and fun style to work in, resulting in clean, clear designs that are suitable for print or animation. In this course Von takes you through the process of creating a linear line illustration using Adobe Illustrator. While showing how to build an LLI digitally, he explains the aesthetic rules, the tricks to getting more depth out of it, and tips for adding color, motion, and a sense of life to your drawings. Members will also be offered a challenge to get their feet wet.
The specific type of illustration we'll be discussing in this course is called the linear line style, also referred to as continuous line illustration. The modern application of this style is derived from contour drawing. Picasso is a classic example of one artist that utilized a linear approach in many of his own drawings. And this style, in digital form, has seen a resurgence in popularity due to its extremely adaptable aesthetic for nearly any type of business genre, whether in print or animated.
In this course I'll deconstruct the essentials for preparing your art, drawing out your design, and executing it with precision in vector form in order to create an effective linear line illustration. I love to create linear line art because it's just a fun style to work in, and I think you'll discover how you can approach and utilize a linear line style in your own work moving forward.
