    Hi Matt,

    I was taught by my teacher to use straight lines to do block-in during the time when I started to learn drawing. But recently, I found many great artists (even the old masters) actually use long continuous curved lines to start their drawings (even for long-duration drawings), which can help to get more rhythms and make the drawing less stiff.

    I am wondering what’s your opinion about it and which way do you prefer? I feel it’s harder to draw accurately using long continuous lines, but is that something that worth practicing and will actually make my drawing better in the long term?

    Best,
    Lingyu
