Three major elements to design a two-dimensional art:

  • point- is an exact location in a two-dimensional space
  • line- a point travels across a two-dimensional space
  • shape – a group of lines that enclose a two-dimensional area
3 Dimensional Elements
  • Texture
  • Value
  • Color
  • Direction
  • Size
  1. Volume – 2 – 3 point perspective
  2. Shading & Texturing
  3. Focus
  4. Changing direction – rotating shapes
  5. Diminishing Size
  6. Overlapping

WIKI INFO Line art or line drawing is any image that consists of distinct straight and curved lines placed against a (usually plain) background, without gradations in shade (darkness) or hue (color) to represent two-dimensional or three-dimensional objects. Line art can use lines of different colors, although line art is usually monochromatic. Line art emphasizes form and outline, over color, shading, and texture. However, areas of solid pigment and dots can also be used in addition to lines. The lines in a piece of line art may be all of a constant width (as in some pencil drawings), of several (few) constant widths (as in technical illustrations), or of freely varying widths(as in brush work or engraving). Line art may tend towards realism (as in much of Gustave Doré’s work), or it may be a caricature, cartoon, ideograph, or glyph. Before the development of photography and of halftones, line art was the standard format for illustrations to be used in print publications, using black ink on white paper. Using either stippling or hatching, shades of gray could also be simulated. One of the most fundamental elements of art is the line. An important feature of a line is that it indicates the edge of a two-dimensional (flat) shape or a three-dimensional form. A shape can be indicated by means of an outline and a three-dimensional form can be indicated by contour lines.   View Examples of Line Art http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_art#mediaviewer/File:High-Current_Copper-Brush_Commutated_Dynamo.jpg   COMPLETE LESSON & GUIDE: Try a New Lesson Each Day to Fully Grasp the Concepts PRINT STUDENT ART INFORMATION GUIDE
