5) Gesture Line


Gesture lines involve more of an implication of an object through freely moving lines.  The lines don't have to outline every edge, but rather imply that those edges are there.

Through this orientation of basic and hurried lines, we can pretty clearly see an older man with glasses, a beard, and a cowboy hat.  He doesn't have the depth, size, texture, or color that a real man would possess, but we still understand the shape that is being conveyed and the idea of the pose that is being expressed.
