When they said, ‘less is more’, I don’t think they meant reducing your drawing to one unbroken stroke. French graphic designer, Quibe, specializes in drawing portraits of famous people and characters using only one line of pencil. ‘One Line Masks and Helmets’ is his latest series of one liners featuring the masks and helmets of characters like Magneto, Iron Man, Judge Dredd, and Dr. Doom.

If you think drawing portraits with this style is easier than using more traditional styles, try it for yourself and you’ll find out it’s like a mind-boggling puzzle!

Quibe has an extensive work of one line portraits, which you can check out on his website.
