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.
Update: I've been using these pencils for well over a year now and am loving them. I'm adding a picture of one of my drawings to my review!
Packaging for this set could use some more thought. Since the pencils come pre sharpened there should be enough room to accomodate the tips. A few of them were broken upon arrival. Maybe a piece of foam across the top that the tips might lightly fit into so they would be better protected.
Also a reusable storage type packaging would make this an awesome deal. This has a carry handle (nice for younger artists maybe) but the sides are sealed so the only opening is the top making it a bit difficult to put everything back in its spot.
Overall tho I would recommend this set and I would purchase another when needed.
Amazing. These are very good quality pencils. My sketching pencil is nearly down to a stub. Made some amazing drawings.
Tips: Draw with your HB pencil first, then trace over it with a darker color when satisfied. Charcoal 6B is great for shading, but try not
to press down too hard on the paper with the pencil, because it being a charcoal pencil, it is hard to erase. Which is why you start with the HB pencil. Some pencils are almost exactly the same shade, although some of them have different textures. Not that all shades are the same, some of them just look similar. Blending stumps aren't really necessarily. You can blend with your fingers or tissue paper. I prefer to shade with my fingers. You can shade with pencil, and blend it in by rubbing it with your fingers. It's easy. This kit is not only for beginners, but also professionals. The charcoal sticks are great, but I don't recommend taking your charcoal drawings and placing them in a folder for a very long time, because eventually the charcoal may smudge and it'll look faded. The sketch pencil is what I recommend for you to sketch with first. Hence the word "sketch" when saying "sketch pencil". Although you might think it's just like a regular #2 pencil, when you compare the way it feels to write with, and how much better it looks on paper, it's so much more different! If you have a young artist, a teen in high school, or you ARE an artist, I truly and honestly recommend this! Along with a link to a sketch pad on amazon. It has 100 pages, but the pages are 80 pounds, which means that the papers are thick. Permanent marker and water color paint don't leak through it. The price is worth it!
