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
If you're new to sketching, here are some tips to
help you as you start drawing pencil sketches:
• Gather the right
-- 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.
-- 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
--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
-- 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
-- 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.
Drawing pencil sketches can be done however
you want, and that's what makes this art form so wonderful! It's
totally up to your creativity and ingenuity, and you can create
beautiful sketches however you want.
