How to draw perfect curve lines?


I'm not a professional drawing.

In the next images, I would like to ask how to draw such perfect curves lines like in the illustrations.
Should I use French Cruve? (they seem a bit time consuming and sometimes error can occur). Or shoud I use a flexible ruber? Or should I train my hand to draw in such a perfect was (it's a bit difficult I think?)

Thank you

Re: How to draw perfect curve lines?

I'm a professional illustrator, so if I were drawing these kinds of images, I'd probably sketch out the linework very carefully and lightly first, then going over it again once I established the lines with whatever medium I was working with (marker, paint, pencil, pen, etc).

Yes, you can definitely use a French curve or maybe try a Flexible ruler which cost about $10-20USD, depending where you shop.

They are great for just sketching the linework out to finish later.

I do recommend practicing a lot, first, to get your hand and the muscles in your hand/arm to move in the ways that you want to draw.

Just my thoughts. Good luck!
