Basic Pencil Shadding

Find Your Own Pencil Drawing styles & Technique

Every pencil artist has their own way of doing things. We will all tell you contradicting methods of doing certain techniques, and different rules to abide by and what you should and shouldn’t be doing.
The truth is though, there are no rules. Just our own experiences of good practice. What I might suggest works for me, in time you may find a different, more comfortable way of doing for yourself.
A good pencil portrait or a good drawing is just that. Nobody is interested in how you got to the finished piece. The finished portrait is what is important.
