For anyone who wants to master realistic drawing techniques in the iconic medium of graphite, Pencil Drawing Step by Step provides a fresh, contemporary approach enhanced by plenty of inspiration and encouragement.
This comprehensive guide starts with an introduction to basic tools and materials, from pencils and erasers to paper and supports. Next, artists learn essential strokes and techniques, such as hatching, stippling, and shading, as well as how to render textures, create form, and draw from photos. Each project is presented in an easy-to-follow format with simple step-by-step instructions.
Pencil Drawing Step by Step covers a wide variety of subjects — a pet portrait, a horse, a sports car, a traditional still life, and more. Along the way, artists discover how to set up a composition, depict shadow and light, and master perspective, among other skills.
