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.
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.
