Patterned Line Drawing

Line Drawing


My main inspirations came from Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles, but I used some Greek and Egyptian references too when I ran out of ideas.

This is also the first time I outlined anything in pen! At first I was very nervous, but I soon got used to it. However, I still believe my lines are quite wobbly. Any tips on how to outline in pen would be much appreciated! Please comment below.
