Adding Depth to a Drawing: Part 1

When creating comics, illustrations or any drawing, adding depth can make or break an image.

If you’re creating cartoons or illustrations, depth can be visually appealing for your audience. There are forms of drawings that have zero depth to them and still work, however, in my comics, I like depth. So today’s vlog I talk about it. No, it has nothing to do with Johnny Depth. Or wait, is it Depp?

This tutorial is going to be in 2-parts.

The first part is about line weight and width. I’ll explain how a black and white drawing can be visually appealing using line weight and how that all relates back to depth.

The image below is what I’ll be sketching out.

Hope you enjoy Part One and it’s a very in-depth experience for you!
