    I was reading a drawing tutorial book and came across a confusing sentence:
    See if you can draw a straight line and then set down another parallel to it. That is a "studied" line.
    What does "studied" mean here? Thank you very much!

    I suppose you would draw the second line more slowly, carefully, and consciously than the first.

    It's probably an exercise in looking at/studying something closely and then faithfully reproducing it.

    No doubt it will become clear as you progress with the book. Good luck. :)
