Line definition:
A mark on a surface that describes a shape or outline. It can create texture and can be thick or thin. A line can go in any direction. It can express emotions and feelings.
What's a line anyway?
Contour line vs. an outline-
What's the difference? An outline is a line drawn around an object. It doesn't show any depth or form. A contour line is used in drawings to show depth without using detail and without shading.
