Pencil Drawings Shading.


Shadow Lining is a great way to plan out your shading without having your outlines show through in your final drawing.

When using this technique to draw skin with fine wrinkles, use a sharp tip. For smooth skin, angle your pencil more so you get slightly blunt circles which are much easier to blend, giving the skin a softer appearance.

1.d) Shade a solid tone from one end of your sketchbook to the other. Lift your pencil every now and then and rotate it slightly before you continue shading. Don’t forget to scribble on a scrap piece of paper to test your pencil’s sharpness before you continue! Your goal is to make it look as though you never lifted the pencil at all.

For the exercises below, try to implement the shading tips and techniques mentioned in Part 2 of the tutorial. You can apply different shading techniques to the exercises too (cross hatching, circulism, etc).

The side facing away from the light consists of the core shadow and reflected light.

Circulism is my second favorite shading technique. It’s great for creating realistic skin textures. The idea is to draw many circles that overlap each other, building tone with each added layer.

To get a smooth shade, you’ll want thick strokes which are close together. Move your hand high up on the pencil and away from the tip. The more you angle the side of your lead towards the paper, the thicker your strokes will be. The thicker, the better! These strokes can be easily blended.

At this point, you may notice some inconsistencies. Make corrections by adding a few more layers where needed.

1.e) Pick out a few different pencil grades such as HB, 2B, 4B and 6B. Shade in order from hardest to softest pencil and go from left to right. Your goal is to blend the values together seamlessly so you get something that looks like image 1.a).

Are you frustrated by inconsistent, short, choppy strokes? Improve the quality of your strokes and increase your stroke length by harnessing the power of your elbow and shoulder.

You can also hold your pencil with a regular grip which would give you more precision, but it’s not as good for shading large spaces where you need the shading to be smooth.

In the image below, I used all of the realistic shading techniques above to convey wrinkly skin. For the first few layers, I used circulism, then I used the other three shading techniques to achieve various textures found in wrinkly skin.

This is a method I came up with a while back where I only use a specific shading technique to outline areas of light and shadow before I shade. I don’t want to explain it using 3 paragraphs every time I refer to it, so I’m going to call it shadow lining from now on. I think it’s a car detailing term but it fits, so I’ll just use it.

2.a) Draw a series of wide to narrow boxes. Shade each one using vertical strokes. Follow this pattern using one or multiple pencils: Shadow, Mid-tone, Highlight, Mid-tone, Shadow.

Be careful when shading or outlining with sharp, hard pencils because they can leave deep indents in your paper which are very difficult to cover up.

The HB pencil (aka #2 pencil) is absolutely great for drawing preliminary outlines and shading light areas because it doesn’t require much effort to produce faint lines. However, you’ll need to apply a lot of pressure when it comes to shading dark shadows. All this effort can damage your paper, resulting in a drawing that doesn’t translate well from multiple viewing angles. Not to mention, it will be impossible to erase.

This technique is similar to hatching or cross hatching, except you’re curving the lines to follow the contour of the form you are shading. Contour lines can be drawn vertically, horizontally and even diagonally. This is a great shading technique to practice giving form to your line drawings. With a sharp pencil tip, it’s great for shading fine wrinkles.

I use this technique to convey wrinkled or highly textured skin as well as some types of fabrics.

HB: Preliminary outlines, some highlights, first layer of shading, eye-whites.

Shading is the process of applying varying levels of darkness to create the illusion of form and depth.

A typical full set of pencils will range from 9H (hardest) to 9B (softest). Having a full set is not necessary for portrait drawing. The range you need depends on the type of drawings you do.

Before you shade anything, analyze your subject until you understand it’s contours instead of trying to figure it out as you draw. It really helps to observe your subject from multiple angles. Once you familiarize yourself with your subject, decide on how you will shade before you actually shade.

This is my longest tutorial to date, consisting of more than 3,400 words! I tried to cover as much as I could in this tutorial. If there’s something you’d like me to add, please let me know!

Create a pointy end on your kneaded eraser to dab each of the dots away. Dab lightly! It’s tedious but well worth it.

This is my favorite and most used technique, especially for speed drawings! It’s a huge time saver.

Sometimes, we may have the tendency to over represent or exaggerate subtle forms such as eye bags, pimples and smile lines. Instead of defining a form using an outline or line, practice representing these forms using gradients.

In the image on the right, the light source is coming from the top left. The area facing the light is the light side and the area facing away from the light is the shadow side.

When shading with a variety of pencil grades, each pencil should only cover a small range of values.

Tip: You can find the direction of the light source in a scene if you trace the edges of the cast shadow against the form it is cast from.

The more textured the paper, the more white dots you will get across your drawing. This can make your drawing look very grainy.

The cross hatching technique consists of overlapping lines coming from multiple directions.

Your pencil grip and wrist movement should be generally loose, except when shading the darkest values and doing detailing work. Use light to medium pressure and switch to a softer pencil when the one you are using cannot go any darker.

1.g) Select a few different pencil grades and shade a series of rectangles. Use only your pencil to blend each of the values together.

It’s common for beginners to leave large areas of their portraits (such as cheeks) white. Areas that remain white or are shaded with a solid tone indicate that they are facing the same direction. Have a look at the center forehead plane in the three images below.

If you’re shading into a lighter area, though, it helps to reduce the amount of pressure at the end of the stroke so you get a nice gradient instead of an abrupt change in value.

Here are a few things to keep in mind before and while you shade:

4.a) Determine the direction of the light and shade vertically along each jagged line. Around sharp edges, tighten your terminator and loosen it around smoother edges. If you really want a challenge, give each image cast shadows as well.

If you want to practice shading on simple objects, grab a bright lamp, a set of geometric shapes and set up a scene!

To achieve a realistic drawing that communicates form and depth, your drawing will need to have a wide range of values. Invest in a set of high quality pencils with a range of grades that fit your specific drawing needs.

Does the overall shading of your portrait lack balance? Make sure your lighting is consistent across the entire portrait by keeping track of how dark you shade each area of the portrait. You can do this by referencing back to one main value. For me, the main value is the darkest or lightest value already established in the portrait.

If you want to convey a round edge, avoid abrupt shading transitions. The more gradual your shading is, the more smooth your edge becomes.

For the face on the left, I would shade my drawing with an HB for outlines and eye-whites, a 4B for the rest of the face and maybe a 6B for the pupils.

1.f) Layering: Use an HB pencil to shade an even layer of graphite across the page. Split the area into 4 spaces labeling them 3, 2 and 1. Add a darker layer of graphite over your first layer from left to right and ease up on the pressure as you approach 1. Do the same thing except this time stopping at 2. Then the same thing for 3.

1.a)  Without lifting your pencil or taking any breaks, draw tight lines back and forth from one end of your sketch book to the other. Gradually increase your pressure as you go. Your goal is to get a smooth gradient.

Use an overhand grip on your pencil paired with movement from your elbow and shoulder to create longer and straighter lines. This will give you a much wider range of motion compared to using just your wrist or finger joints. To shade darker, press your index finger down on the pencil’s tip.

If you need help selecting the best pencil grades for a portrait, create a value scale using your own graphite pencils, compare the values to your reference image directly and select the range of pencils that closely match the values you need.

6a.) Shade the 2 shapes using an overhand grip while moving your elbow and shoulder. Make sure to scribble on a separate sheet of paper before you begin to increase the thickness of your lines. Make sure that each stroke you make reaches the full length of each shape. Only lift your pencil once you get from one end to the other.

Avoid holding your pencil like you would if you were writing, especially if you just sharpened your pencil. The lines are more difficult to blend and it requires more time and effort to keep your strokes tight, not to mention cover more ground. A drawing shaded like this will look very scratchy.

This position can, however work very well for shading areas of the skin with fine lines/wrinkles.

Planes angled towards the light directly are the lightest. As the planes start angling away from the light, they receive less and less light, hence appearing darker.

6B: Darkest shadows, hair, clothes, dark areas of background, pupils, inside the mouth and nostrils.

White: You may have seen artists use correctional fluid (whiteout), paint or white pencil crayon to bring out strong highlights in their drawing. This gives the drawing a very impactful look and can enhance the level realism. Here’s an example.

Black: With graphite pencils, you won’t get a deep black. However, you can achieve it with charcoal. They are actually very commonly used together with amazing results.

Aside from practicing proper shading and blending techniques, a good understanding of light, planes and contours are crucial for turning a flat line drawing into a realistic portrait that conveys the illusion of form, bringing your drawing to life.

5c.) Draw planar faces and shade them by coming up with as many lighting arrangements as you can think of.

4B: Mid-tones, light shadows, detailing, hair, first layer of shading for clothes, background.

You guys asked for it, so here it is: the most requested tutorial to date: How to Shade + Shading Techniques! 🙂

3c.) Select 3 very different faces from a magazine and draw vertical and horizontal contour lines across each face.

Core Light: The area on the surface of a form that faces the light source directly. It is darker than the highlight. Highlight: A reflection of the light source on the form. The highlight is the lightest area and will appear in different places depending on your viewing angle.

At certain angles, the highlight will not exist in your line of sight. On glossy surfaces, it will be very defined, while appearing soft on matte surfaces. Mid-Tones: Mid-tones are the darkest values on the light side, and are lighter than the core shadow.

These areas are not facing the light directly. Mid-tones appear darker and darker as they approach the shadow side, as the surface of the form starts facing away from the light. Image 2

Before you blend, make sure that your strokes are tight, the shading is even and there aren’t too many white and black dots. Blending smooths out your shading, but it’s not a miracle solution for lazy people. If your shading is sloppy to begin with, blending isn’t going to help.

Before shading a portrait, it’s good practice to simplify what you see by breaking areas of the face into planes so your brain can process the information better. This allows you to find patterns of light more easily and can also improve your overall drawing accuracy.

This shading technique consists of a series of lines that go in one general direction. You can increase the value by applying more pressure and or using a softer grade of pencil.

The surface of a cube is much easier for someone to shade realistically compared to a sphere because you can clearly see which sides of the object are facing the light and which ones are facing away. These flat surfaces are called planes.

Hard pencils produce clean, sharp and light lines which are great for sketching, architectural drawings, product sketches, etc. The harder the pencil, the more difficult it is to blend or smudge.

If you prefer to use only one pencil, I suggest using a 2B, 3B or 4B. They’re flexible enough to reach both ends of the value scale without much effort. If your drawings are usually light, go for a 2B. My favorite is 4B.

3b.) Make up your own shapes and add contour lines to them. Once you’re done, decide where the light is coming from and shade them in.

5a.) Select any 3 objects around you and simplify them using geometric shapes. Shade them once you’re done.

Tip: If you re-positioned your hand on the pencil for any reason while shading, scribble on a scrap piece of paper until you regain the same stroke thickness before you continue with your drawing in case you catch a sharp edge.

Below is a breakdown of what you can expect to learn from this shading tutorial.

A cast shadow appears when a form blocks light from reaching the surface of another form. The edges of a cast shadow can appear soft or hard depending on the intensity and distance of the light source. In direct sunlight the edges will appear hard, while in diffused light such as a cloudy day, edges will be soft.

Here’s an example from my face shading tutorial using the hatching technique.

Again, if you’re using a highly textured paper, you might get some black dots across your drawing. If you’re shading skin, these dots can look like stubble (it’s even worse when paired with white dots). If you’re going to use a blending tool on your drawing, remove the dots first!

The area immediately below the sphere is called an occlusion shadow and is usually the darkest area as it is least affected by reflected light.

When shading, you are essentially reproducing the value of light as it interacts with a form. Understanding light is crucial in order to create a convincing portrait.

Tip: When drawing wrinkly or rough skin, avoid blending your graphite.

The addition of these values are subtle, but do their job in transforming a flat surface into a more shapely one. Also take a close look at the right forehead plane. The shading is even more subtle, but still does not come across as flat.

Is your shading incorrectly representing the form you intended to draw?

There are a few factors involved in achieving a smooth pencil shade.

The pencil grades I use the most for portrait drawing are: HB, 4B, 6B and 8B from Derwent. You can click here to check it out on Amazon.

The side facing the light consists of the core light, highlight and mid-tones.

5b.) Find 3 faces in a magazine and use a pen to outline major planes.

I’m going to use a sphere with one main light source as an example because the light is more predictable.

The range of values can vary greatly from one portrait to another due to lighting or skin color. The 2 faces below have very different highlights, mid-tones and shadows.

Core Shadow: The core shadow or form shadow is a dark strip that appears after the terminator. The appearance of the core shadow can be affected by reflections or multiple light sources. In ‘image 1’ the core shadow is less prominent on the left side due to reflections from the white table.

Reflected Light: Objects are not only lit by light sources, but also by reflected light. That’s why shadows are rarely ever black. Light bounces off different surfaces such as walls or even dust particles in the air, creating reflections.

These reflections can vary in color and value. Cast Shadow and Occlusion Shadow

For example: If I’m shading a face using the circulism method, I will also use circulism to outline shadows and highlights on the face. If you don’t outline your shadows or highlights, then this method may not apply to you (It’s very effective for drawing hairlines though).

When using this technique, always angle your pencil more towards the paper so your strokes are nice and thick. This allows you to minimize gaps, making it easier to blend.

Soft pencils produce dull and dark lines which are easy to blend. Soft pencils deposit more graphite with less effort, making it easy to fill in space, blend, shade and add texture to your drawing. They are the best pencils for shading and drawing portraits!

You can tell how hard or soft a pencil is by looking at the combination of letters and numbers printed on the end of each pencil.

Using multiple pencil grades makes the job easy because there is less effort required to achieve a lighter or darker shade. For example, it would have been difficult to shade the background using an HB and even more difficult to shade highlights using a 6B.

The center plane in the first image is shaded with a solid tone, making it appear flat. The following two images introduce a range of very subtle tones, giving the surface slight bumps.

The longer a cast shadow gets, the lighter and softer it becomes due to reflected light from the environment around it.

Shading in many layers. You’ll notice that with each added layer, the dots reduce in size and number. You can also use a sharp pencil to carefully fill in large or weirdly shaped dots to improve the texture of your shading.

Or you can blend the graphite using a blending tool of your choice.

If your tool belt currently consists of a single HB pencil, your portraits are probably lacking depth.



Safeguard your paper, This is definitely a valuable pencil sketching technique for beginners: set a piece of report under me to prevent smudging your drawing whilst you`re working. It seems like clear , but it can end up being the downfall of some sort of great piece of job ! Healy also prefers in order to mount her paper in a board, attaching that using a layer associated with matte medium. This will help keep things neat, in addition to provides a good surface to be able to work.

Start off lightly and build by there, While i start pulling , I plan and discover using loose lines, in addition to avoid committing ahead of time along with hard, dark lines, claims Chiu. As I develop my lines will modify , so checking and rechecking my work is crucial . I darken my traces and add details from the end. I do not concentrate on one area intended for too long to stop overdrawing. Begin with an underdrawing, Artist Tim von Reuden likes to start along with a digital underdrawing that will he prints at a single per cent Opacity. Over , you will see the underdrawing associated with his sketch of the woman holding an employees . He explains, I enjoy to keep it mild so that it provides for a foundation rather than some sort of final image.

Create textile , Fabric can range through sleek and shiny to be able to matte and dull. Just how you shade it will certainly help sell the thought of the information you`re attempting to depict. With this draw , von Reuden is intending to be able to capture the golden folds up of material found inside the original image. He or she began by outlining typically the shapes and blocking away aspects of shadow.

Check and recheck, Before you begin more powerful lines and detail do the job , it`s essential to be sure you have the correct kind down. Chiu`s advice is definitely to check and verify again. I must nail along my drawing`s underpinnings ahead of I can add particulars . I really avoid speculating in the details: I desire to make sure every thing is symmetrical and seem right before writing tougher and harder lines. They also suggests taking a look at your current work in a hand mirror or through a digicam . Considering different vantage details is a great approach to highlight if anything will be crooked. I constantly request myself, does this experience right? If anything looks off - even in case I can`t immediately set my finger on which that is #NAME? believe in my gut and troubleshoot my drawing before carrying on

Make use of the right eraser, There are usually a few various kinds of eraser, and each is best suited to various things. You`ll definitely need a kneaded eraser. This has some sort of putty-like consistency (it`s often known as putty eraser), and you knead this before and after work with . A kneaded eraser will be best for lightly choosing up the coloured pad binding off the document . This works wonders if correcting mistakes, or in the event that you`re deliberately lifting coloring from an area like the eyes, says Healy. The gum eraser has a new more solid consistency, plus is better if you`re trying to fully get rid of a coloured-in area. Des Reuden continues: I highly believe in letting pure intuition take over in the particular creation process so My partner and i work with the underdrawing more as a standard . Therefore the final end result varies.

Rescue their life from your comfort zone, When these pencil drawing strategies should help you know the essentials with the method , sometimes you need in order to toss the rules out and about of the window and locate what works for an individual . There`s nothing wrong using stepping outside of typically the box if it implies achieving the effect an individual want, says Healy. Learning from your errors will occur when a person step outside of that will box. But don`t end up being intimidated! The process is usually entirely fun.

Draw on your individual experiences, Dip into your own experiences to add an unique layer of authenticity to the piece, suggests Healy. What this means is using something like a new memory, feeling or aroma when building your work. Regarding example, the special experience you experienced when resting down with a good friend in a coffee shop, or perhaps a memory of the child years experience. You can become abstract or use hyperrealism. Whatever you decide to choose makes typically the piece unique to an individual . I`ve found that men and women resonate with these items the most.

Beyond of which , different artists have distinct approaches to lines instructions you need to locate the style that`s best for you. I favor to use a distinctive outline in my a muslim , whether it is using thin traces or bold outlines, ` says Healy. It could help pinpoint the audience`s eye to a particular area. In addition, it gives some sort of stylised look, if that will is what you are usually hoping to achieve. Chiu, however, prefers a various approach. I try to be able to avoid outlining my images because this tends in order to make things look smooth and deadens the 3 DIMENSIONAL effect. Breaks and places in my lines display form in the lighting and shadows.

Mix up covering techniques, There are tons of different pencil sketching techniques relating to shade providing . Chiu uses two key approaches. The first will be with all the outlines going in the similar direction. `This makes my personal shading appear more natural, and helps my particulars pop out from the particular lines I`m using with regard to shading, he explains. The particular second method involves doing work in patches of shade providing , to help define form . Patches of lines avoid the form, which aid keep things in point of view , he says. This system is furthermore great for backgrounds plus creating texture.

Touch up your skills with these kinds of pencil drawing techniques, with regard to both graphite and female pencils. These pencil sketching techniques from top performers can help you take your painting skills one stage more , whether you`re using graphite pencil or coloured pencils. For many artists, pad drawing is the expertise that introduced them to be able to the art world, in addition to even if you`ve managed to move on to a different channel , understanding how to attract with a pencil may help you increase your expertise elsewhere. These pencil attracting techniques cover many methods from typically the basics of mark-making in order to advanced processes to force you out of your current comfort zone. We`ll also provide advice on the resources and materials you will need to know, such while blending stumps, paper choices , and different erasers. When you`re a total newbie , or just want in order to upgrade your kit, consider a look at the guide to the very best pencils.

Use contrasting concepts, One particular drawing technique Healy utilizes in her work will be to use contrasting aspects within a piece involving work, for instance, juxtaposing beauty and ugliness. Items use the beauty involving colours, flowers, the soft qualities of skin or locks , along with the female form. I will also tend to make use of something option opposite in order to all of that, for instance bones, insects, sharp the teeth , or anything that may possibly provide discomfort to the particular viewer, she elaborates. `Somehow this provides an appealing idea to a piece. In particular when the `ugly` parts very much harder to spot with first. To me this is the very stark representation involving what life is just like

Short on time? This above, from character artist Bobby Chiu, runs by means of some pencil drawing connected with action. For even more in-depth suggestions about composition in order to how to capture light source and shadow, check out the art techniques article. Or perhaps , for inspiration, check out this kind of roundup of unbelievably reasonable pencil drawings.

Use a stump with regard to soft blending, How a person blend your work can easily have a big influence on the final result. With regard to a soft blended impact , try a blending stump. After each light part , I very gently mix the coloured pencils using the stump, says US-based artist Jennifer Healy. No longer push too hard or perhaps the colour will keep , making it more challenging to be able to softly blend. I do it again this process as usually when i need. After numerous layers it produces some sort of very soft and fragile look. This technique needs a little trial and mistake , though. Healy warns that will if you blend also softly, the stump can easily pick up colour of which you`ve already layered for the paper.

Master mixing , Healy has a particular process for blending the woman coloured pencil work. The girl depends on an put together , to check the contact form is proper before assigning to coloured pencil (it`s much harder to clear off coloured-in areas than the outline). It also assists her plan where typically the highlights and shadows can fall. She then creates up colour using refined layers. I love to be able to start out with smooth gentle layers to obtain a better thought of lights placement, shadows as well as the coloring palette, she says. Following each layer she combines gently using the mixing up stump. Once she offers reached a stage she`s happy with, she actions on to the last step: adding an put together . For this final part , Healy uses coloured pencils alone, and does certainly not blend with a stump.

Know when should you prevent , The majority of performers tend to tinker with their very own work - even right after they`ve signed their label . I can always locate something to change in case I look hard more than enough , so it can become difficult to share with when a new piece is truly completed , says Chiu. However, be suspicious of overworking your item . `Eventually, I make a new conscious decision to set my drawing away plus start something new, they continues. `That`s when My partner and i consider my drawing performed

Attempt different approaches to sets out , The following drawing technique issues line weight. As properly as demarcating different items , lines can help stress shadows. Thicker lines can easily fade and disappear to the shadows, which can assist convey the 3D kind , explains Chiu.

Try combining pencils together with watercolour, While pencils upon their own enables you to produce a wealth of distinct effects, it can get interesting to combine associated with other media. For instance , in her work, Healy wants to combine watercolour plus coloured pencils. It`s crucial to get started with watercolour in addition to then layer coloured pencils on top, she points out , because pencils can generate a waxy surface of which repels liquid, and stops the watercolour from placing into the paper. This kind of is a fun approach to try out, your woman says. Both mediums possess unique qualities and smoothness . Combining the two factors makes a medium all regarding its own.

Categorise the fabric, Von Reuden points out how one can add value and even shading to create even more layers of depth in addition to weight. He admits that will , when drawing and re-creating fabric, the types involving wrinkles created can almost all be placed under about three separate categories: hanging/relaxed, stretched/tension, and scrunched/compressed. Hanging cloth tends to be free and have a moving appearance. Stretched fabric produces long lines, usually along with a point of help . Compressed fabrics bunch straight into each other, creating scrunched-looking areas.

Make use of the correct grip, The first phase would be to master how in order to hold a pencil properly . Chiu recommends holding the particular pencil just like you could some sort of piece of charcoal, plus taking advantage of typically the side of the business lead to draw, rather as compared to the point. This allows maintain your pencil sharper with regard to longer. When covering big areas, I shade along with my pencil perpendicular in order to the line I`m sketching to get wide, smooth lines, he adds. Intended for details, I hold the pencil parallel to our lines to get sharpened , narrow marks. The just time I use the particular thing is when I`m working on intricate information

Unify your colors , Having an uniform technique to colour may help take cohesiveness to your job . It`s a good concept to make sure that will your artwork has unifying colours, says Healy. `This consists of a certain colour palette, mood and also a way of spreading these types of through the entire art item . In addition, she indicates creating a harmonious basic by using tinted report or adding a backdrop wash of colour (in paint). This will present through whatever you take a nap on top of that , thus giving it a great appearance of cohesion. Whenever I use coloured pencils, I`m fond of employing tinted paper produced by simply Kraft.

Find the right report texture, The surface consistency you`re working on may make a big big difference towards the effects you can easily create. It is referred in order to as the grain or perhaps `tooth` of the document . A rough tooth will be more visible, and typically the ridges will grip typically the colour from your pencils. Which has a smooth tooth, the particular ridges are very excellent , and there`s less hold . Healy finds this sort of paper provides the easier surface for mixing coloured pencils, although the girl warns that it`s furthermore easy to operate the color off the surface.
