Top Customer Reviews
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!
-This set contains eight pencils, three charcoal pencils, one sketch stick, two charcoal sticks, two sharpeners, and two kneaded erasers.
-Don't be confused about the gradients on the pencils or charcoals; "B" stands for "black" or "soft"; "H" stands for "hard"; "F" is an intermediate between HB and H. There are 12 pencils; 8B-6B-4B-2B-HB-F-H-2H-Charcoal 2B-Charcoal 4B-Charcoal 6B-Sketch Stick 6B.
-If you're unused to using a kneaded eraser, it's flexible and easy to manipulate to include negative space in your drawings, in addition to simply removing mistakes. It doesn't leave behind mess like a normal eraser and can be used again and again.
-The case of this particular set is ideal. I haven't run into any trouble with broken leads inside the pencils due to poor handling.
-The case is reusable, if you wish to store the items there.
-The sharpener is decent but as with any sharpener, over time and use you will either need to replace the blade or the sharpener.
I enjoy pushing my values, contrast, adding texture and negative space in my drawings, this is an excellent set at a very good price. I like portraits and detail and have enjoyed using this set. I've been able to achieve the results I'm looking for.
If you're a beginning artist and want to get started, there's nothing better or cheaper than a pencil, piece of paper, and an eraser. This set is ideal.
Amazon came through--the day I started shopping for a sketching kit, they had this one on a lightning sale, with a substantial discount too. It came as fast as usual with Amazon Prime, and I had this in my hot little hands long before the holidays. Now, I can spend the day pretending to be a serious artist with my pencils and erasers and charcoal. I have additional sketching/drawing tools, as these aren't all-you-need (I bought smudgers, paper, watercolor pencils, and color pencils separately) but this was a good set of starter pencils and erasers, and the charcoal was a bonus.
While professional artists may not be thrilled with this set (I'm not one) I find it perfect for someone who has had numerous college level drawing classes in the past and is resuming an old hobby. It would be a great set for teen artists to start with as well. (Most of the younger set are just as happy with a decent eraser and #2 pencils, along with an ample supply of paper and coloring pencils). It's a great gift as well.
