How To Shade with Pencils
Ok my friends! So you want to know how to shade with pencils/graphite. Awesome, I’m glad you are here. In this video I will take you through my process and offer my best advice.
Tools of Mass Creation:
Faber Castell Pencils, B, HB, 2B, 3B, 4B, and 6B
Faber Castell White eraser
Sakura Electric Eraser
Prismacolor Pencil Sharpener
Strathmore Pastel Paper
Q-Tips, cotton swabs
Some pro tips:
Keep it light! The lighter your touch the lighter the line. This makes for easier erasures.
Work from left to right if you are right handed. Opposite for lefties! This keeps your hand out of your drawing- no accidental smudging
Practice from life. Create a still life, draw a friend or landscape. In the beginning you should stay away from photographs.
