I have bought very expensive set of pencils that I do not like the way they 'feel' when I draw across paper, but these are smooth and comfortable I will be getting another set when I need them and I do not have to spend 20.00 or more on pencils or others I do not like.

For those who do not know about drawing pencils. There are different numbers and letters at the bottom of the pencils. I use the 2H for light sketching and to draw from the object to the vanishing point because the pencil is light on the paper and it erases easy. Then When I want to darken the lines I use the 2B which is the lightest of the B's for shading I use all the B's which are dark and for the darkest shadows I use 6B which gives the darkest shadow and good for stippling, (dots close together for dark shadowing and further apart for lighter shadowing).

I hope this makes sense for you. I am awful at explaining things.

This set is perfect for begginners. I purchased mine and received it very quickly in order to complete a portfolio before my deadline. The set contained everything I needed for my drawings in graphite and charcoal.

The speed of delivery was exceptional and everything was in perfect condition when it arrived. The price was also very good. I would buy this again when I need to replace my old set.

Okay, so I ordered this kit on 1/4/11. I didn't expect it to be here in 2 days, because Amazon told me 4 days. It arrived at my doorstep in 2 days. No more. I opened it up, and was very excited about it. It had everything it said on the page, and it was just PERFECT for me. I immediately opened it up, and started drawing. I drew the best drawing of a Lamborghini that I had ever done, thanks to this kit. The kneaded eraser was perfect, although it us used up very fast (At least for me.) So that is my review, and if you are considering buying this, BUY IT. You won't be disappointed.

I received the package in just a days time!! :DD i came home from school
and tore the package open. It was like an animation, in which everything stops
and goes slowmo with the sparkles..
There was this review i read that said " when you open it, be prepared for graphite" or something
along those lines, but there wasnt any charcoal or graphite smudges anywhere on
my package.
I just frequently used the set, and i'd have to say, that i REALLY LOVE THE KNEADED ERASER.
it's the best one i've ever had!
This whole set is great for a beginner or anyone who draws, i would recommend it to a friend
and i would buy it again!

THANKS SO MUCH!

I got this set for my nephew and was shocked at how professional all of the pieces were. I would definitely reorder this to replace the pieces, or for another gift for an artist - budding or real.

I rated this set Three Stars because I had to rate it something, but whether it is One Star or Five is really going to depend on who you are. If, for instance you are an artist or an art student at any level this is not for you. The pencils are cheaply made and the points break too easily for heavy use. If, one the other hand, you're purchasing this set for your school-age child it is just about perfect. It has a good range of the most popular values of graphite pencil and it will also be helpful that you won't have to shop separately for charcoal, sharpeners and erasers. It is also a good value at $7.99

The sketch set goes well with the book on sketching. Am learning a lot. Good choice for a beginner like myself. Would recommend it to anyone, beginner or not.

Okay, I'll admit, this is my first pencil art set. I've never really used another one so I have nothing to compare it to.
However, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! I've drawn all my life and must say that this set is definitely worth the money. (It's great for starting out with, anyway). I think the pencils do an excellent job with drawing/shading, etc. I draw people mostly and am impressed by the way the pencils are easy to use and how my drawings come out. And I love the erasers. I'm sure there are many more pencils out there that would do just as good as job - perhaps even better - but to me, this is enough and I am happy with it. I'm not an artist how earns a living selling artwork or anything, but I do like to make my work look decent and good. I have a friend who draws with just a regular ol' pencil and I told him,"you know, your drawings could be so much better if you tried getting some drawing pencils." And I told him about the ones I use. For a while, I put off drawing for some months and am getting back into it. (I had always thought the drawing pencil sets would be too expensive or something.) I'm glad I looked and got back into it and bought this one, though.

The shipping is great. It came early and was nicely packaged, so that was a plus. I would definitely order again as the product was well worth the price.
Happy drawing =)
