Line: A mark made by a tool as it is drawn across a surface. The tool can be almost anything – a pencil, a pointed brush, a computer and mouse, even a cotton swab. Also, a line is defined as a moving dot or point, or can be called an open path. Line can describe shape, so we can recognize objects.

Implied Line: A line created by positioning a series of points so that your eye automatically connects them.
