• Where one subject/shape meets another, a solid and consistent outlined border is painted/drawn

Hard outlines give a clear indication of the borders of the subjects/shapes, setting each one off. Such outlines might serve as graphic elements that introduce a subtle abstraction, keeping a real or imagined scene from being perceived as fully immersive. The outline is usually of a color and/or value that is distinct from the subjects/shapes.
