If you like to sketch yourself, here are some top tips:

Drawing pencil sketches can be a real challenge for those who are just getting into art.

You'll find the pencil sketches require a good deal of effort and focus, though many of them can be made quickly. Sketching is one of the best ways to capture an image before it fades from your memory, and you can simply flesh out the details later.

If you're new to sketching, here are some tips to help you as you start drawing pencil sketches:

Gather the right equipment -- If you're just doing simple sketching, all you'll need is a single pencil, an eraser, and a pad of paper. However, if you plan to do some full-on drawings, you'll definitely need an assortment of pencils of various hardnesses. Consider getting a set complete with pencils ranging in hardness from 4B to 6H.

Warm up first -- Before you get down to serious sketching, give your hands a quick warm up. You may be out of practice, or even completely new to sketching. You want to become adept at drawing lines and circles quickly, so do a few warm-ups to get your hands comfortable with the pencils and your movements. When it comes time to sketch, you'll be ready for precision work!

Keep your hands loose --When you grip the pencil too tightly, you end up restricting the motion of your hands. You want to sketch very lightly at first, as that will help you draw the outlines without actually marking up your paper too much. Make sure to grip the pencil lightly enough that you can easily move it, and don't press too hard on the paper. It's all about the delicate touch at first.

Work with different pencils -- Sketching those first few lines should always be done with a very light pencil, but you'll want to flesh the lines out with a darker one. Always have the collection of pencils nearby, and switch between them as the sketching calls for it.

Use the right eraser -- A good eraser won't necessarily erase your lines completely, but will simply lighten them so that you can still see the original drawing. However, you may want an eraser that will completely erase your lines, just in case you screw up and make a mistake. A soft putty eraser can be your best friend when it comes to working with graphite pencils.

Add the details -- The lines you draw initially should only be enough to give you an idea of where you want to take the picture, but you will need to flesh it out by adding the details. You'll want to work with a darker pencil when fleshing out the picture, drawing over the lines that you have sketched lightly into the pad. The initial lines are the frame, and you're filling in the picture now.

Be accurate -- If you're going to do shading, adding textures, and making the image look a bit more alive or three-dimensional, try to be as accurate as possible with the touches you add into it. Make sure the shading is all in the same direction, and try to keep the shapes of the image as real to life as you can. Of course, all of these rules are thrown out the window when you do cartoons or caricatures, but they apply for real-to-life sketches.

Only ink at the end -- Once you're sure that the picture is complete, you will ink over the sketches to ensure that the picture lasts. However, before you start inking, you need to be certain that you've got the details right. Go over the picture one last time before you add the ink, and make sure that it's done properly.
