Breathing new life into True Detective characters are these minimalistic portraits done by Quibe that creatively use on continual line to draw the portraits. The illustrations are simplistic in style, but beautifully capture the aesthetic of the popular actors.

The illustrations, dubbed One Line, capture the main characters from the first True Detective series posing side-by-side. The portrait features Matthew McConaughey as Detective Rustin and Woody Harrelson as Detective Marty Heart depicted using one line that captures both characters continually and makes up small but significant facial details such as eyes, noses, hair and face shape. The illustrations contain other simple details such as paint that adds delicate shading and highlighting. Besides that, the illustrations are left simple and clean with the focal point being the linear pen outline that captures both characters.
