Drawing Outlined Bricks and Mortar
Roughing in the brick outlines for a 'bricks and mortar' drawing.

To create the look of bricks and mortar, you'll need to draw each brick separately. Use the linear brick design as a guide for drawing your brick pattern in more detail. I prefer to draw them freehand, drawing the outline of each brick just fractionally away from the guidelines to create the brick-and-mortar pattern. If you're going to use a crisp, outlined style of drawing, you can draw them directly in pen on your drawing. Or you can skip this stage altogether and go directly to hatching your bricks, using the grid as guide. (More on this in a moment!)
