The Perfect Starter Set
from Medina, TN
Comments about General's Sketchmate Drawing Set:
This is an excellent drawing set that is a staple in my art classes. I am a high school art teacher, and this drawing kit has been a part of my students drawing supplies since the start of my career 10 years ago. It has everything a student needs in a set of drawing supplies, and it is very reasonably priced. Highly recommended!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great, basic drawing set for a beginner.
from Louisville, Kentucky
I am brand new to drawing. I think this is the perfect set for me.The eraser and sharpener work fine. I have no idea what the tortilion or sandpaper paddle are - but I'm sure I will learn. I just wanted a really basic set with pencils, eraser and sharpener. All the other sets had like 18 or 36 pencils, two different kind of erasers, fancy this and that - and its just too overwhelming when I'm such a beginner. I decided to get this very basic set to get me started and it will do just fine. I got: 2B, B and 2H in the graphite pencils, and then in the charcoal pencils I got 6B ex soft, HB hard and 4B soft.

theres always one thing that ruins it
from Lake, MI
the pencils and sharpener are great, and id buy them again. but the paper stomp is the worst ive ever used. the paper doesnt seem to fuzz (for lack of a better word) quite right when used with the sandpaper. but otherwise a good set.

Not 6B but 2B charcoal pencil
from Salt Lake City, UT
There is no way you can tell what softness of charcoal pencils are in the set except for looking at pictures. The picture shows the set includes 4B and 6B charcoal pencils, but what I received was 2B and 4B. I ordered 24 sets of them for my school, and 2B charcoal pencils separately. So we don't have any 6B but students got 2 of 2Bs. Please replace the picture showing exactly what the set includes. That will help other people who are planning on buying the set.

I got this set because my drawing I instructor advised it had alot of the basics that we would need for the start of her class. I am getting alot of use out of it, and it's a good value for a beginner who's on a tight budget.
