Getting Down to What You Need

Now of course before you start, you need to take a look at what materials you’re going to need, right?

What do you mean which ‘kind’ of pencil?

If you’re just starting out, you might find this information useful. There are actually several different kinds of pencils out there.

The pencil which is most commonly used for writing is called the standard number 2 pencil. Three are basically two different categories of pencils: The “H” and the “B” pencils.

To talk about them very briefly, the “B” pencils are soft and the ”H” pencils are hard. With the number of the pencil, for instance 2B or 3B, the pencil’s softness or hardness increases. Depending on how hard or how soft the pencil is, you can determine the right combination of pencils to use for making easy pencil art sketches.

Don’t worry too much about the kind of pencil that much. You should know this very basic information so that you know which pencil does what. When you’re buying the pencils, get a bunch of them with varying degrees of hardness and softness to test them out yourself. It’s better to have more options available for when you start making easy pencil art sketches.

Pencil Sharpeners

Getting a good sharpener for your pencil is as important as getting good pencils themselves when it comes to making easy pencil art sketches.

Never for once think that getting a good pencil sharpener is a waste of money. You can’t make an easy pencil art sketch if your pencil is not sharpened, right?

Ideally, you should go for a pencil sharpener with two open ends. They’re ideal because each end sharpens the pencil tip to a different degree. You can have it excessively sharp or less pointy depending on your need while making your easy pencil art sketch.

An Eraser

Okay this really does not need a lot of explanation. You should have a handy eraser for the mistakes you might make when making easy pencil art sketches.


Ah yes, the paper. It’s the surface where your easy pencil art sketches are going to be made. Even when it comes to paper there are loads of different kinds of paper available for you to make easy pencil art sketches on.

Invest in a cheaper paper when you are starting out. This is because it’s pretty much useless to invest in the best quality papers.

Even professionals invest in low quality paper. That’s because cheaper paper is the best to test out new ideas to try out before getting to the actual thing.

You’re Good To Go

Now that you’ve got the basic understanding of the things that you’re going to need before you start easy pencil art sketching, you’re good to go and explore.
