Pencil Sketches Effect Photoshop.


Click the New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel, then press CMD+Backspace to fill the layer with white (the default background colour). Head back to the Filter Gallery but this time choose Texturizer. Change the setting to Sandstone.

Then, adjust the intensity of the colors if needed by lowering the layer’s opacity:

As you can see, the effect itself is quite simple and there are a number of variations that you can try to get very different looking results. Add a comment at let me know how you are using this effect.

Once you’ve chosen a color, click OK to close out of the Color Picker. Your document will temporarily be filled with that color, and if you look in the Layers panel, you’ll see the new fill layer, named “Color Fill 1”, sitting at the top.

Changing the blend mode of the Gradient Fill layer to Color.

To colorize the sketch with a single color, we’ll use one of Photoshop’s Solid Color fill layers. Click once again on the New Fill or Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel:

Here’s the image I’ll be using (stylish beauty portrait photo from Shutterstock):

If I increase the radius value to something much higher, maybe somewhere around 45 pixels:

Double-clicking the Gaussian Blur Smart Filter will re-open its dialog box.

With the “Color” layer now the top-most layer in the document, your original image will re-appear, blocking the other layers below it from view, which is obviously not what we want. We want to blend the color from the original image in with our sketch. To do that, simply change the blend mode of the “Color” layer from Normal to Color:

So how do we apply Gaussian Blur as a Smart Filter? For that, we first need to convert the layer to a Smart Object. Why do we need to convert it into a Smart Object? It’s because, when a filter is applied to a normal layer, it remains a normal, static filter. But when the exact same filter is applied to a Smart Object, it automatically becomes a Smart Filter!

In this first example, I added a solid color Fill adjustment layer. Change the blend mode to color, so only the color shows through. Adjust the opacity to suit your tastes.

In a moment, we’re going to create the main part of our sketch effect by blurring the layer using Photoshop’s Gaussian Blur filter. But rather than applying it as a normal filter, let’s apply Gaussian Blur as a Smart Filter.

Change this glowing edges layer’s blending mode to Multiply to render the white background transparent, then reduce the opacity of the layer to around 50-60% to reduce the impact of these additional outlining sketch lines.

We need to invert the brightness levels in this layer, making light areas dark and dark areas light, and we can do that using Photoshop’s Invert command. Go up to the Image menu at the top of the screen, choose Adjustments, and then choose Invert (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+I (Win) / Command+I (Mac)):

The Color blend mode tells Photoshop to blend only the color from this layer and ignore everything else, and just like that, the sketch is now colorized:

Change this layer’s blending mode to Multiply so the underlying artwork can be seen, then reduce the opacity of the layer to around 50% to produce a much more subtle paper texture effect.

Then choose Convert to Smart Object from the menu that appears:

Photoshop adds a Levels adjustment layer, names it “Levels 1”, and places it above the other layers in the Layers panel:

This opens the Gradient Fill dialog box. I covered everything you need to know about drawing and editing gradients in Photoshop in our How To Draw Gradients With The Gradient Tool and How To Use The Gradient Editor tutorials so I won’t go into detail here. Instead, let’s look at how to quickly select one of Photoshop’s preset gradients and how to apply it to our sketch.

If you want to try a different color, double-click on the fill layer’s color swatch in the Layers panel:

How To Turn A Photo Into A Pencil Sketch With PhotoshopStep 1: Duplicate The Background Layer

As soon as you select the Solid Color fill layer, Photoshop will pop open the Color Picker, asking you to choose your color. Don’t worry about choosing the wrong color here because, as we’ll see in a moment, we can easily come back and pick a different one. I’ll choose a shade of blue to see what that looks like:

What’s a Smart Filter, and how is it different from a normal filter? Well, Smart Filters are just like normal filters in Photoshop, only smarter! What makes them “smarter” is that while normal filters produce static results (that is, they make permanent changes to the pixels on a layer), Smart Filters are non-destructive and remain fully editable. They allow us to easily go back at any time and make changes to the filter’s settings without any loss of image quality. By applying Gaussian Blur as a Smart Filter, we’re giving ourselves the option to go back and fine-tune our sketch effect later rather than locking ourselves in with our initial filter settings.

Now that we’ve converted the layer into a Smart Object, let’s apply the Gaussian Blur filter. Go up to the Filter menu in the Menu Bar along the top of the screen, choose Blur, and then choose Gaussian Blur:

The effect we’ll be creating in this tutorial mimics the lines and shading of a pencil drawing. Producing this style of artwork for real would take hours of work for even the most talented artist, but the power of Photoshop gives us the ability to replicate it pretty well in just minutes. This makes it much more feasible to use the sketched look within your designs that might require an ‘artsy’ theme. If you don’t fancy creating this effect manually, you might be interested in my free Artistic Paint, Sketch & Ink Photo Effect Actions.

We’ll also learn how to keep our pencil sketch flexible and editable, letting us go back and fine-tune things as needed, by taking advantage of Photoshop’s Smart Filters, fill and adjustment layers, and layer blend modes.

Changing the blend mode of the layer from Normal to Color Dodge.

It’s easy. First, to hide the gradient, click on the Gradient Fill layer’s visibility icon in the Layers panel. With all three colorizing layers (the “Color” layer, the Solid Color fill layer and the Gradient Fill layer) now turned off, you’ll be back to your black and white version:

Once you have your perfect pencil sketch, why not try adding some color for a nice variation.

Turning off the “Color” layer by clicking its visibility icon.

Change the blending mode of the duplicate background layer to Color Dodge, which dramatically boosts the contrast and brings out the grainy details of the image.

We’ve created so many copies of our Background layer at this point that our Layers panel is becoming cluttered with them, and they all have names (“Background copy”, “Background copy 2”, “Background copy 3”) that don’t tell us anything about what the layer is being used for. Let’s break the cycle and rename the layer we just created.

And now I’m back to my sketch being colorized with the photo’s original colors:

Hi CAFE Crew, here is a brand new tut for you all. This is an old favorite of mine. How to turn a photo into a pencil sketch in photoshop. This is actually really easy to do and it gets quite good results too. As usual, I’ll provide a few creative jump off points at the end for your own experimentation.

After lowering the opacity, the overall brightness is now looking better:

The Multiply blend mode is one of a group of blend modes in Photoshop that darken the image, and right away, we see that my sketch now appears much darker:

One of the most popular features here at photoshopcafe is the “Super Tutorials”.In Super Tutorial #3 This will be a…

Next, we need to change the blend mode of the layer. You’ll find the Blend Mode option in the upper left of the Layers panel. By default, the blend mode is set to Normal. Click on the word “Normal” to bring up a menu of other blend modes and choose Color Dodge from the list:

To blend the color in with the sketch, simply change the fill layer’s blend mode from Normal to Color:

To use this layer to colorize the sketch, we need to move it up to the top of the layer stack; in other words, move it above all the other layers. One way to do that would be to click on it and simply drag it up above the other layers, but there’s a faster way. To jump a layer directly to the top of the layer stack, first make sure it’s selected in the Layers panel. Then, press and hold Shift+Ctrl (Win) / Shift+Command (Mac) on your keyboard and press your right bracket key ( ] ). This will instantly jump the selected layer straight to the top:

Then, to bring back the single color version, click on the Solid Color fill layer’s visibility icon (the empty square where the eyeball used to be) to turn it back on. Or, to bring back the photo’s original colors, click the “Color” layer’s visibility icon. I’ll turn my “Color” layer back on:

Release your mouse button when your hand cursor is directly over the New Layer icon. Photoshop makes a copy of the Background layer, names it “Background copy” and places it above the original:

We’re going to need this original image again later when we go to colorize the sketch, which means we’ll need to make sure we don’t make any changes to it. To keep it safe, the first thing we’ll do is make a copy of the image by duplicating the Background layer.

This will turn the document completely white, or at least mostly white (you may see a few scattered areas of black depending on your image):

One of the classic Photoshop tutorial topics is the creation of a pencil drawing effect from a photograph. It’s one of those quick and simple techniques that produces a satisfying result, which makes the tutorial great for beginners. Throughout its history, Photoshop has featured lots of built-in filters that produce various sketch and artistic effects, but they don’t exactly produce a realistic outcome. In this tutorial I’ll show some clever steps that will transform a photograph into a hand drawn pencil sketch, which can even be fine tuned to find the most authentic look.

If you find, as I do, that your sketch now appears too dark, you can fine-tune the amount of darkening by adjusting the opacity of the Levels adjustment layer. You’ll find the Opacity option directly across from the blend mode option at the top of the Layers panel.

Under the Filter menu, select Gaussian Blur and alter the radius to around 40 pixels. The use of the Smart Object will apply this filter as a Smart Filter so we can fine tune the settings if necessary, rather than permanently apply the effect.

Here’s the same sketch colorized with the photo’s original colors:

Drag the Background layer over the New Layer icon in the Layers panel, or use the shortcut CMD+J to create a duplicate of the layer. Go to Image > Adjustments > Invert (or hit CMD+I) then right click and select Convert to Smart Object.

I’ll be using Photoshop CC here, but the steps we’ll be covering are fully compatible with any recent version of Photoshop so you can easily follow along no matter which version you’re using. Photoshop CS6 users may wish to check out the previous Photo To Pencil Sketch With Photoshop CS6 tutorial, while users of Photoshop CS5 and earlier can follow along with our original Portrait Photo To Color Sketch tutorial. Note, though, that the steps for colorizing the sketch with a single color and a gradient were not covered previously and are new to this latest version of the tutorial.

Back in the Gradient Fill dialog box, I’ll change the Angle of the gradient from its default 90° to 135°, which will cause it to run diagonally across the image, creating a bit more interest:

Go to Filter > Filter Gallery, then navigate to Glowing Edges from under the Stylize menu. Change the settings to 1 Edge Width, and maximum Edge Brightness and Smoothness.

To achieve more of a coloured pencil drawing, the Black and White adjustment layer can be turned off to remove the desaturation effect.

It may not seem like anything has happened, but if we look again in the Layers panel, we now see a small Smart Object icon in the lower right corner of the layer’s preview thumbnail. This tells us that the layer is now a Smart Object:

In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to easily create a classic Photoshop effect, turning a photo into a pencil sketch! In fact, we’ll actually learn how to create four variations of the sketch effect, starting with a simple black and white version. We’ll then take our black and white sketch and learn a few different ways to colorize it, first using the photo’s original colors, then with a single color, and then with a gradient!

Step 12: Move The “Color” Layer To The Top Of The Layer Stack

Change to Linear Dodge blend mode and you should see a perfectly white image (Use Color Dodge for sharper edges)

Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur (You could actually use any filter, as long as it creates a difference between the 2 layers)

Here’s what my sketch looks like colorized with the Spectrum gradient:

The new “Background copy 2” layer appears at the top of the layer stack.

I’ll click OK to close out of the Color Picker, and now my sketch appears with my new color. You can go back and try as many different colors as you like until you find the one that works best:

If we look in the Layers panel, we see the Gradient fill layer (“Gradient Fill 1”) sitting at the top. Just as we’ve done a couple of times already, to blend the gradient in with the sketch, simply change the blend mode of the Gradient Fill layer from Normal to Color:

Here are some variations using Color Dodge, you will notice that Linear Dodge produces a softer result that Color Dodge. Try different blending Modes for different results.

Photoshop makes a copy of the layer, names it “Background copy 3” and places it directly above the original Background layer:

Changing the blend mode to Color Dodge turns the document temporarily white.

Begin by opening up your chosen source photograph in Adobe Photoshop. The effect works best with images that have a clean background in good lighting and focus, so working with a professional studio shot like this stock image from Shutterstock provides the best results.

Add another Adjustment Layer, this time select the Black and White option. The default settings will suffice to remove the colour and generate more of a standard pencil appearance.

The effect you achieve will depend on how much blurring you’ve applied. Lower radius values will create a sketch with fine, thin lines, while larger values will give you a more photo-realistic result. For example, if I choose a fairly low radius value of around 10 pixels:

Click the Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel and choose Levels. Move the shadows and midtones sliders slightly to the right to darken the image a little.

Also try running a gradient through a new blank layer at the top and change that to color blend mode.

And now, the sketch appears colorized, in my case with blue:

This opens the Gaussian Blur dialog box. To create our main sketch effect, all we need to do is apply some blurring to the layer (the Smart Object). We control the amount of blurring using the Radius slider along the bottom of the dialog box. The further we drag the slider towards the right, the more we increase the radius value and the stronger the blurring will appear.

We have our main sketch effect, and we created it using a Gaussian Blur Smart Filter. As I mentioned earlier, Smart Filters remain fully editable, allowing us to easily go back and change the filter’s settings later if needed. How do we do that? Well, if we look again in the Layers panel, we now see the Gaussian Blur filter listed as a Smart Filter below the Smart Object we applied it to. If, at any point, you start thinking that your sketch could use a bit more fine-tuning, simply double-click directly on the words “Gaussian Blur” to re-open the Gaussian Blur dialog box and drag the Radius slider as needed:

The more you lower the opacity value below its default 100%, the more the layers below the Levels adjustment layer will show through, brightening the sketch back up. I’ll lower mine down to around 40%, but keep an eye on your image as you adjust the opacity to find the value that works best:

When you release your mouse button, Photoshop makes a copy of the layer, names it “Background copy 2” and places it above the other layers:

This re-opens the Color Picker, allowing you to choose something different. I’ll try a pinkish-purple this time:

Next, we need to remove all of the color from our “Background copy” layer, and we can do that quickly using Photoshop’s Desaturate command. Go up to the Image menu in the Menu Bar along the top of the screen, choose Adjustments, and then choose Desaturate. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Shift+Ctrl+U (Win) / Shift+Command+U (Mac):

Here’s the same sketch again, this time colorized with a single color (you can choose any color you like):

To colorize the sketch with a gradient, we’ll use a Gradient fill layer. Click once again on the New Fill or Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel:

We’ve created our main sketch effect, but depending on how much blurring you applied, you may be finding that your sketch is looking too light. If that’s the case, we can easily darken it using a Levels adjustment layer. To add a Levels adjustment layer, click on the New Fill or Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel:

Now that we’ve colorized the sketch with a gradient, what if you like one of the previous colorized versions better (the one using the photo’s original colors or the one using the single color)? Or, what if you don’t like any of the colorized versions and want to go back to the black and white version? How do you switch back?

The final result is a realistic pencil sketch effect with authentic line work and shading. The blurred and inverted color dodge layer does the base work by boosting the contrast, but the additional effects like the glowing edges outline marks and the paper texture make the artwork much more believable. The use of the Smart Object also means you can adjust the amount of Gaussian Blur to fine tune the result.

Then choose Solid Color from the top of the list that appears:

The “Background copy 3” layer appears above the original Background layer.

With the name highlighted, type in the new name. Let’s name it “Color”. Press Enter (Win) / Return (Mac) on your keyboard when you’re done to accept the name change:

Clicking the arrow to the right of the gradient color swatch.

Use the shortcut CMD+A to Select All, then go to Edit > Copy Merged (or CMD+Shift+C). This will make a clipping of all the visible layers. Press CMD+V to paste this copy at the top of the layer stack.

If you like the way your sketch effect looks using the photo’s original colors, you can stop here. Otherwise, let’s look at a second way to colorize it, this time using a single color. Before we do, let’s turn off the “Color” layer by clicking its visibility icon (the “eyeball” icon) in the Layers panel. This will bring back the black and white version of the sketch:

Dragging the “Background copy” layer onto the New Layer icon.

Invert the layer by heading to Image > Adjustments > Invert (or the CMD+I shortcut) to switch the colouring from white on black to black on white.

Let’s look at one more way to colorize the sketch, this time using a gradient. First, turn off the fill layer by clicking on its visibility icon in the Layers panel. This will once again return you to the black and white version of the sketch:

To convert the layer into a Smart Object, click on the small menu icon in the upper right corner of the Layers panel:

To do that, click on the Background layer and drag it down onto the New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel (second icon from the right):

The options and controls for the Levels adjustment layer appear in Photoshop’s Properties panel, but there’s nothing here that we need to do with them. Instead, to darken the sketch, all we need to do is change the blend mode for the Levels adjustment layer from Normal to Multiply:

At this point, we have our main sketch effect, but currently it’s in black and white. Let’s look at a few different ways to colorize it. We’ll start by using the photo’s own original colors. For that, we need to make another copy of the Background layer, so click on the Background layer (the original Background layer that’s sitting below the other layers) and, just as we’ve done a couple of times already, drag it down onto the New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel:

With your image newly opened in Photoshop, if you look in your Layers panel, you’ll see the image sitting on the Background layer, currently the only layer in the document:



Check and recheck, Before you will leave your site and go to better lines and detail job , it`s essential to ensure you have the correct kind down. Chiu`s advice is definitely to check and examine again. I must nail along my drawing`s underpinnings ahead of I can add particulars . I really avoid questioning on the details: I desire to make sure every thing is symmetrical and appear right before writing more powerful and harder lines. He or she also suggests considering the work in a hand mirror or through a digital camera . Considering different vantage details is a great solution to highlight if anything will be crooked. I constantly question myself, does this think right? If anything appears off - even in the event that I can`t immediately place my finger on which that is #NAME? have confidence in my gut and troubleshoot my drawing before carrying on

Consider different approaches to traces , Another drawing technique fears line weight. As effectively as demarcating different things , lines can help stress shadows. Thicker lines could fade and disappear to the shadows, which can assist convey the 3D kind , explains Chiu.

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

Make use of the right eraser, There are usually a few several types of eraser, and each is matched to various things. You`ll definitely need a kneaded eraser. This has some sort of putty-like consistency (it`s occasionally known as putty eraser), and you knead this before and after make use of . A kneaded eraser is usually best for lightly choosing up the coloured pen binding off the report . This works wonders if correcting mistakes, or when you`re deliberately lifting coloring from an area like the eyes, says Healy. Some sort of gum eraser has some sort of more solid consistency, plus is better if you`re trying to fully get rid of a coloured-in area. Vonseiten Reuden continues: I highly believe in letting pure intuition take over in typically the creation process so My partner and i work with the underdrawing more as a guide . This implies the final outcome varies.

Mix up covering techniques, There are tons of different pencil attracting techniques relating to covering . Chiu uses two key approaches. The first is definitely with all the ranges going in the similar direction. `This makes our shading appear more natural, and helps my information pop out from the particular lines I`m using regarding shading, he explains. The particular second method involves functioning in patches of covering , to help define condition . Patches of lines sidestep the form, which support keep things in point of view , he says. This method is in addition great for backgrounds in addition to creating texture.

Categorise your current fabric, Von Reuden points out ways to add value and even shading to create even more layers of depth and even weight. He admits that will , when drawing and re-creating fabric, the types associated with wrinkles created can almost all be placed under 3 separate categories: hanging/relaxed, stretched/tension, and scrunched/compressed. Hanging textile tends to be shed and have a streaming appearance. Stretched fabric makes long lines, usually together with a point of help . Compressed fabrics bunch in to each other, creating scrunched-looking areas.

Unify your shades , Having an uniform method to colour may help provide cohesiveness to your do the job . It`s a good thought 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 kinds of throughout the entire art part . In addition, she recommends creating a harmonious basic by using tinted papers or adding a backdrop wash of colour (in paint). This will present through whatever you take a nap on top of this , thus giving it a great appearance of cohesion. Any time I use coloured pencils, I`m fond of making use of tinted paper produced by simply Kraft.

Create cloth , Fabric can range coming from sleek and shiny to be able to matte and dull. Precisely how you shade it can help sell the concept of the material you`re striving to depict. Just for this drawing , von Reuden is intending in order to capture the golden folds over of material found throughout the original image. He or she began by outlining typically the shapes and blocking out and about regions of shadow.

Try combining pencils using watercolour, While pencils about their own may be used to produce a wealth of distinct effects, it can become interesting to combine associated with other media. For illustration , in her work, Healy loves to combine watercolour in addition to coloured pencils. It`s crucial to get started with watercolour and even then layer coloured pencils on top, she points out , because pencils can generate a waxy surface of which repels liquid, and inhibits the watercolour from placing into the paper. This specific is a fun strategy to try out, the girl says. Both mediums have got unique qualities and construction . Combining the two factors provides an impressive medium all involving its own.

Touch up your skills with these kinds of pencil drawing techniques, intended for both graphite and female pencils. These pencil attracting techniques from top musicians will allow you to take your getting skills one stage more , whether you`re using graphite pencil or coloured pencils. For many artists, pad drawing is the ability that introduced them in order to the art world, and even even if you`ve advanced to a different moderate , understanding how to bring with a pencil could help you better your abilities elsewhere. These pencil pulling techniques cover many methods from typically the basics of mark-making to be able to advanced processes to force you out of your current comfort zone. We`ll also provide advice on the equipment and materials you require to know, such because blending stumps, paper alternatives , and different erasers. When you`re a total starter , or just want to be able to upgrade your kit, get a look at our own guide to the very best pencils.

Rescue their life from your comfort zone, Whilst these pencil drawing methods should help you recognize the essentials from the channel , sometimes you need to be able to toss the rules away of the window and locate what works for a person . There`s nothing wrong together with stepping outside of the particular box if it implies achieving the effect a person want, says Healy. Learning from your errors will occur when an individual step outside of of which box. But don`t end up being intimidated! The process will be entirely fun.

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

Short on time? This above, from character developer Bobby Chiu, runs by way of some pencil drawing linked with action. For considerably more in-depth how you can composition to be able to how to capture light source and shadow, check out the art techniques article. Or even , for inspiration, look into this specific roundup of unbelievably genuine pencil drawings.

Use contrasting concepts, A single drawing technique Healy makes use of in her work is usually to use contrasting ideas within a piece involving work, for instance, juxtaposing beauty and ugliness. Items use the beauty involving colours, flowers, the real softness of skin or locks , along with the female form. I am going to also tend to employ something which is opposite in order to all of that, like bones, insects, sharp pearly whites , or anything that might provide discomfort to typically the viewer, she elaborates. `Somehow this provides an unique principle to a piece. In particular when the `ugly` parts substantially harder to spot from first. To me it is a very stark representation regarding what life is just like

Know when should you cease , The majority of performers tend to tinker with their very own work - even following they`ve signed their label . I can always get something to change when I look hard more than enough , so it can get difficult to inform when some sort of piece is truly done , says Chiu. However, be skeptical of overworking your part . `Eventually, I make some sort of conscious decision to set my drawing away in addition to start something new, he or she continues. `That`s when We consider my drawing completed

Beyond of which , different artists have distinct approaches to lines instructions you need to locate the style that`s best suited for you.

I try in order to avoid outlining my sketches because this tends in order to make things look level and deadens the 3D IMAGES effect. Breaks and places in my lines display form in the lighting and shadows.

Master mixing , Healy has a particular process for blending the girl coloured pencil work. The girl depends on an put together , to check the type is proper before assigning to coloured pencil (it`s much harder to clear off coloured-in areas than a great outline). It also will help her plan where typically the highlights and shadows may fall. She then creates up colour using refined layers. I love in order to start out with smooth gentle layers to obtain a better concept of light placement, shadows plus the coloring palette, she says. Right after each layer she mixes gently using the mixing stump. Once she features reached a stage she`s happy with, she goes on to the last step: adding an format .

Start off lightly and build coming from there, Once i start getting , I plan and discover using loose lines, plus avoid committing ahead of time together with hard, dark lines, states Chiu.

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 using a digital underdrawing of which he prints at one particular per cent Opacity. Preceding , you will see the underdrawing involving his sketch of the woman holding an employees .

Make use of the proper grip, The first stage is usually to master how to be able to hold a pencil properly .

This assists keep your pencil sharper intended for longer. When covering huge areas, I shade using my pencil perpendicular in order to the line I`m attracting to get wide, very soft lines, he adds.
