When I first started out doing art I didn't care so much about quality. I just wanted pencils that did the trick. Having more experience under my belt I see that quality does matter to a certain degree; and this kit fails to impress me in that area.

The pencils included are cheaply made, which makes them a pain to sharpen. Too much energy is spent trying to sharpen them that you'll forget that you're working on a drawing.

The white eraser is a bit too gummy like, a few uses and I already feel the structure beginning to weaken...

The sharpener is OK. But there are better ones (See my list below after review)

The only thing I liked about this kit were the charcoal sticks. I like to sharpen mine with sandpaper and these do produce nice dark tones.

This product receives two stars because it really isn't the kind of quality you should be seeking out in your practices. In the end the flaws just add aggravation which can easily be remedied by buying a better quality.

If you want to REALLY get a good start at art (or good quality for continuing art), then I'd suggest the following:

(Pencils)

You can't go wrong with either Faber-castell or Staedtler. I myself use the Staedtler Mars Lumograph. You can find these in kits, containing various degrees (A good range for the beginner would generally be 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, 6B, 7B and 8B. Pencils ending in H are harder and thus produce lighter tones while pencils ending in B are softer and produce darker tones.) What will also work are the Ticonderoga pencils, which come in packs of 12.

(Erasers)

I recommend the Staedtler White eraser (which is fairly cheap. Mine cost me about 2$ for a fairly good-sized stick), but Pentel also works just as well.

I bought this Late october the 25th or 26th and it showed up as expected. Acually, the first day of the "3-5days" which was a great plus. So, about this product.. I bought this because i'm not a huge professional artist that spends hours drawing and making a living off of it. I like to sketch, draw and cartoon. and this set allows me to do that with multiple tools and pencils. I love the variety and quality of these pencils. Including charcoal not just in pencil but block also, along with graphite bars. really lets me control where things go. I really love the woodless pencil, even though it doesnt keep a good point, (for long) But, i know that in about a year or more i will come back and buy another one when this set gets all used up. Thanks for a great product. I am truely happy with this set.

I recieved this item super fast and got exactly what was described. Very accurate description, and very speedy shipping. I would highly recommend this seller and would not hesitate to buy from them again. As an artist who has been out of commision for several years, this sampler is great to get back into the groove of drawing. Good quality.

All the items in the set are quality and I actually kept the packaging as is, so it's organized and easily stored. I recommend this item.

My daughter is taking her third semester of a drawing class. Her original pencils were used to nubs, and I bought this larger set as a replacement. She was thrilled to get everything she needed -- lots of different lead weights as well as erasers and graphite. A perfect set for her classes.

My daughter loves to sketch and draw so we got her this set to allow her to feel a bit more professional. She loves it! The only thing I would have liked to see in this set would be perhaps a set of "instructions" as to what the different strengths of pencils are used for, or even what the strengths stand for. I am sure professional artists do not need something like this.. but for beginners like my daughter, she is kinda lost when it comes to knowing what each kind of pencil is or how to use it properly. But she goes on her merry way and is having a blast creating and using them as she feels is right.
