For these pieces, I did use a fluid line. Though the majority of the lines in the art are darkened by multiple passes, there are textures in the piece that were created by a visibly curvy and connected line. There are also spots where I lightly trailed over the paper to get from one spot to another without lifting the pen. Creating multiple practice pieces was absolutely crucial to the success of my piece. They allowed me to familiarize myself with the pen and learn what things I did wrong so I would spend more time focusing on them in the real deal. My previous art knowledge gained from Art I was also helpful in being able to understand how to accurately execute what I saw around me. The major difference between my contour drawing and an outline drawing, I think, is just the crispness of the lines. Had I done this piece as an outline, there wouldn't be nearly as many lines and the texture I added would not be included. The piece would have looked a lot more empty and not as interesting. The irregularities in the lines makes the piece more unique. I interpret lines to be barriers between things that are solid and the empty space between them. I feel I have a heavy-handed drawing style, so I tend to prefer to draw things with bold lines. When drawing this room, I made the lines thicker on things with heavier materials and thinner on things that were a little more finely-detailed. This technique helped me capture the look of the room by allowing the viewer to notice that not everything in the room was made of the same material; some things were made of metal, while others were made of fabric. Completing this drawing taught me a lot about the importance of angles and proper spacing. If these things are neglected, the perspective of the drawing shifts and warps away from what you are actually observing. I also learned how to fill a piece of paper as large as the one I used, which was something I had never done before. If I could do this piece again, I would first consider the piece as a whole to determine where things should be placed on the paper. By just rushing in, I ended up messing up the proportions and overlapping objects in the room that weren't supposed to be overlapped. I would also take more time ensuring that my angles were as close to what I saw as possible.
