Line drawing expression techniques
With lines and dots depicting the traces of movement, lines can largely be divided into straight lines or curved lines, while lines sketched by different tools also bear varied emotional and stylistic significance. Adopting the line-drawing style in illustrations not only produces an expression effect that is capable of depicting the tenacity of a tranquil pen stroke, and is also capable of capturing an engaging and adoring openness in diverse styles to draw the viewer’s attention. The simple line element has been deployed to shape the author’s emotional passion for children’s storybooks, and to sketch illustrations revolving around the subject of “Friendship”. In the creation, the lines and color highlight the storybook’s liveliness and whimsy, where the simplistic lines are integrated with a fantasy-like drawing expression mode. On the other hand, it has also been anticipated that the work can bridge a spiritual interaction and communication with the viewer, conveying the storybook’s approachability and wholesomeness. Chapter I describes the motive and objective of my creation. Chapter II explores storybooks, illustrations, line drawings and the artistic style that influences the author’s creation, as well as relevant archival literature on the Art Nuevo period’s line expression forms. What follows in Chapter III, it analyzes pertinent works by local and foreign storybook authors, and in turn extending to cover my individual artistic creation concept, inner thinking elements, and an introduction on the author’s creative process. Chapter IV covers the interpretation of the author’s works focusing on the content of work, coloration and styling expression techniques with individual description and analysis on the significance of the works. In the final chapter, it recaps the overall assertion, and envisions the future creation thoughts and focus. The study has summarized with the following three conclusions, (I) As can be extrapolated from the archival literature review, the line-drawing expression technique offers enrichment in how it can be expressed in a wide range of expression techniques, i.e. bold lines versus fine lines, straight lines versus curves, long lines versus short lines, and is versatile with an array of medium tools to foster a new presentation when applied in storybooks. (II) With the expression of a uniformed style in line drawing found among the major line drawing works by renowned storybook painters, local and foreign, hence a crucial point of the creation lies in how best to grapple the coordination of imagery and the application of lines. (III) The multiple mediums and elements bring forth an enriching imagery, as can be found on the texture shown in crayon-scrapped lines, the romantic curvature of the plant ornamental pattern style, all contributing to adding the storybook style with a rich and profound perspective, and bringing the awareness that the very spirit of illustration lies in innovation and a bold attempt to try.
