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 set out of sheer desperation because there are no art supply stores around for miles, and I was feeling artsy. I already have a lot of different graphite media, but I needed some more of the softest B degree pencils, and I try not to use my more expensive brands just for sketching. That said, this set is fine for sketching and even for creating more detailed drawings, but it is not a professional grade set. I knew that from the start, so I was not expecting these to perform like the Staetdler Lumograph , Derwent, and Prismacolor Turquoise pencils I use for finished drawings.

With the Royal and Langnickel set you get a nice variety of drawing media in various degrees of softness at a very reasonable price. It gives a beginning artist or student a chance to use charcoal sticks and pencils (great fun, awesome learning tools) as well as graphite. I had fun with the graphite sticks too- these are nice when you want to block in large square objects like buildings or fill in large areas with tone. They are messy, so if you are shopping for art supplies for young kids, be warned. Bits of charcoal and graphite will find their way into the carpet, where everyone will tramp in it and grind the stains really well. Hard to clean graphite and charcoal out of carpets and upholstery- I know from much experience.

The erasers are so-so, and I rarely use the little sharpeners, so I cannot comment on that. I bout this set for the pencils and drawing sticks (comes with velvety smooth vine charcoal too!), so I am not bothered by the lower quality erasers. I am going to attach a couple of photos to show one of my sketches I made with items from the set. I used most of the graphite pencils, hard and soft, for this piece, but I supplemented with a couple degrees of Lumograph too- I keep all kinds of stuff in the case with its original contents, as you can see in the one photo.

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.

We bought these for my daughter who loves to draw!
This is a pack of 9 graphite pencils, 3 charcoal pencils, 2 erasers, a sharpener, 3 graphite sticks, and 3 charcoal sticks.

The graphite pencils come in H, B, HB, 2H, 2B, 4H, 4B, 6B, and there is an 88 that is a full graphite pencil, no wood in the pencil at all. All of the graphite pencils work great and are very smooth. The only problem with them is the lighter colored ones don't erase very easy, the dark ones do.

The three charcoal pencils come in hard, medium, and soft, none of which she has used.
Of the two erasers, one is a plastic eraser, and one is a kneeded eraser, both of which wok good.
The charcoal sticks also come in hard, medium, and soft, and the graphite sticks come in 2B, 4B, and 6B, all of which have not been used either.

The sharpener on the other hand has been used and is sharp and works great.
I gave this 4 stars because of the light graphite pencils not erasing well.
