Hello, my name is Ray. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you an example of how to draw elegant curves. Now any curve you do in art is basically elegant but what we're going to do is show you by what they mean by that. A curve can be a regular curve but an elegant curve, here's an example of an elegant curve. What I'm going to do is I'm going to draw you real quick, here it is, now something like that. Now it looks like a regular curve but it's actually different. You know it's the way it's shaped, the way it's being illustrated. Now the way we don't just leave this like this and then call it an elegant curve, let's say we want to add to it and like an example of that, like let's say you want to draw a line from one of the curves that looks kind of like the curve you already did so you have something like that. That's an elegant curve, okay that's one and let's say you want to just play around, you want to use another color basically so you'd do that again. See, now there's no shading or anything going on here, just basically showing the form and shape of the curve and let's see one more color, kind of like the same, just, and that's just an example. Basically what you have is this unusual abstract shape made up of generally elegant curves. So this is an example of how to draw elegant curves.
