I think this is very helpful but considering I already know most of these techniques I learned a few I've never thought of like the stippling and trying new ways to hold the pencil. I especially loved the idea of practicing textures. Great job!

do you have any suggestions as to what else could be used as a blending stump. Idk when I'll be able to get to a craft store :|

You can use your fingers, a tissue, blending stumps aren't really necessary. I never use them actually.

Ah, this is pretty helpful, but the last part.
I think it might upset someone if I start pulling up floor vents to put in my sketchbook. :iconsweatplz:

Thank ye kindly. I was looking at drawing pencils, I was just unsure of what I needed/how they worked. I'll be sure to purchase a set.

But yeah, what I had been doing was just using a normal pencil, and if I wanted to shade something it would just be kind of a flat layer where I had smudged the marks. <_<

Didn't really produce good results. :U

: < Awww, :hug: Well it surely won't hurt to try them. Mostly I just use the B sides honestly. My poor 8B is about 2 inches long now. And you will never have to deal with flatness again! :evillaugh:

Yey. I prefer coloring on my tablet, but it often takes me a helluva long time to do anything with it compared to how quickly I work on paper.


Even then, it's not exactly fast. :icongwahplz:

It's too difficult to get anything that looks semi-life-like I find *cries bitterly* Even after 50+ hours of working with it haha.

Eh, I'm not overly worried about getting things to look all that realistic; Realism and whatnot are good for practice, but I much prefer stylized art. What I'm more worried about is just making things look nice. >_<

Realism .. lacking style? Blashpemy! Every artist has a style. Even if it is realism, there is still a style, silly. : p

Perhaps I meant to say that I prefer styles other than realism. Or maybe not, I dun know crap about art. ._.

Good read! I do most of my shading in colors, but I love drawing in pencil so anything I can find is great! thanks!

Well. Blending can be used with colored pencils and crayons.
Stippling, hatching, and cross-hatching can be used with basically everything else.

Thanks for the response. :excited:
