Introduction to Line Weight (Skillshare)
Line weight can be an important factor to making your lineart look more appealing and stylistic. It can imply an object's weight, the light direction, or AO (ambient occlusion) without having to render it all in. Line weight is commonly used in a lot of comic art or 2D stylized work and can often significantly change the overall look of your art.

In this course, we'll be using Gumball from The Amazing World of Gumball to avoid getting too complicated and to focus on the fundamentals of using a guide to direct the look of your line weight.

The project for this class will consist of you choosing a simple cartoon character from the 6 choices provided and changing its line weight. (The file is a png so there won't be a white background when you bring it into your drawing program.)

You may lightly sketch over the original to get the main shape and then line it afterward or you can freehand the best you can while still focusing on changing the line weight.

I suggest you draw over the original on a separate layer and keep the original on a low opacity.

Don't think too much while you're working, just focus on the basics you learned from the video!

You can choose to do more than one if you wish to get in some practice!

I will take the time to review and give feedback after you submit your practice project. :)
