Line Quality: Constricted/Aggressive Line

Line Quality: Constricted/Aggressive Line

Video Category:

Let’s take a look at aggressive or constricted lines and how they can be used in a drawing. This is a great line quality to show action and vibrant movement, busyness or dirt, dust, and whirlwinds. The lines can also show tension, electricity, and energy if used in certain contexts. You can draw these lines when you’re feeling tense, but you don’t have to, as they can also just show angularity, contraction or tightness in a line. Go ahead and experiment with them and let me know what you think!
