I don’t know exactly that whether it are already on quora or not, but thought to share this:

For realism I’d ditch the technical pencils entirely and use Conté crayons or Caran D’Ache drawing pencils

In the sight method, you’ll set up your drawing pad right next to the subject itself, so you can transfer the object to the paper at an accurate size by measuring your object with a pencil.

This technique is a very time-consuming type of shading, but it’s sometimes necessary to describe a specific texture. Some artists have the patience to do a complete drawing using the dots only. The more dots you place, the darker the value is — the fewer dots create a lighter value. By varying the strength, size, and number of dots, you can make a range of values in a picture.

The grid method is often used to enlarge the drawing for a mural painting or a large artwork. This old method involves dividing the drawing into equal squares. Then, you compare and transfer abstracted shapes from the squares to the enlarged surface. This technique helps to see the comparative relationships between the objects.

Comparative measurement involves seeing the ratios between the objects and using the negative space as a measuring device. For instance, an apple might be two times smaller than a vase placed next to it; a child could be three times shorter than an adult. In other words, you relate one object to the next by placing invisible comparative lines to demonstrate the relationships.

Some artists produce energetic, rough lines, while others make deliberate, careful contours. The quality of the line determines how interesting your subject looks.

Use a sharp tool to make small indentations in your paper; when you draw over the area, the graphite will not reach the indented areas. This is a great method to make whiskers, blades of grass or to draw any other super fine lines.

A small bonus: I made this tiny Einstein using an HB pencil as well.

I don’t believe that better/more materials equals better art.

These come in handy when you draw uneven surfaces, like a leafy bush or a tree.

People ppsted some of great sketched. Some how it clicked in my mind that I should post something different in the same zoner. So I came across with some of the coolest sketches On Black Paper, with White Pencil.

This is my first serious work and I used the normal HB pencil for this. I didn’t know about the B pencils at that time. I was at my school hostel (December 2012) right in between the model exams for 12th board. I was really bored and found this picture of Rajinikanth on one of my friends exam board.

Graphite drawings can easily get messy, so it’s always a good idea to use something, like a sheet of paper under your hand, to avoid smudging your drawing. You can also try to work from left to right if you are right-handed or right to left if you are left-handed to minimize the risk of having your hand going over an already drawn area.

In the 17th century, graphite pencils replaces the metallic drawing styluses previously used by Medieval and Renaissance draftsmen. Dutch artists were known for their early graphite landscape drawings. In 1795, French painter Nicolas-Jacques invented what is now the modern pencil lead from a mixture of clay and graphite This invention allowed artists to have more control over the density and shade of graphite they used, and the tool subsequently increased in popularity amongst painters, architects, designers, and miniaturists. By the 19th century, pencil drawings were mainly a way for artists to sketch preliminary compositions and studies for paintings and sculptures. The introduction of other fine art pencils, including colored, watercolor, crayon, and charcoal varieties, expanded the medium’s versatility, and pencil drawings became a fine art form in their own right. Today, many artists continue the tradition and often combine pencil lead with other mediums for more dynamic drawings.

I was looking to all the answer and sketches and found that are are really great.

Graphite pencils come in various degrees of hardness, from 9H (the hardest) to 9B (the softest).  H stands for hardness and B for blackness, so a 9H pencil will be very hard and light, and a 9B pencil will be very soft and black.

It is indeed an unforgivable fallacy to imagine that HB used alone can possibly produce good results in drawing when compared with a combination of other grades. A purely realistic rendition is the result of a simulation of careful and almost imperceptible flow from one shade to another. If it must be purely and perfectly realistic, not manageably realistic, and if it must be assessed, or examined by someone that is discerning and has eyes for details ( a quality often desired in realistic art) the finished drawing must have shades and values that may be no less than 100 to make it pop. A HB is is a grade between the Hard and Black values of shades. The values of shades achievable here, as with any other grade of pencils, are affected by the by the amount of surface texture carried by the plane (paper) and the degree of pressure the artist can exert and paper can accept. Exerting too much pressure with hard pencils like HB may permit the possibility of darker shades but can erode and damage the paper surface, while reducing the speed and spontaneity of drawing for the artist. For very rough surface papers, the need for too much pressure should not be there as this would give us very dark shades too soon. Applying too little pressure however with a HB will not give us the same result as doing this with say, a 5 or 6 H which may be far more appropriate. The need for a variety of pencils is called for with particular reference to the texture of the paper, the amount of pressure you are exerting on the paper at every given time, and of course the amount of light, medium and dark shades you are ready and patient enough to explore. It is a painstaking process that cannot be achieved on one pencil. From the examples of drawings executed with a single pencil shown here, compared with those that explored a variety of pencils, it is obvious which one have won the day. With every realistic drawing I make, I content myself in seeing that there are no less than 12 pencils before me.

I am going to look at this from a different respective. It’s surprisingly very different to create artwork and calligraphy on black paper. People will be lining up at your door begging for your secret to such beautiful art pieces … to which you can simply respond: “Black {paper, that is} magic.”

To block in the subject, make a simplified division between the light and the dark parts of a composition. Observe the light, how it travels across the form and where it turns to shadow. Sketch in the shadows first, as you can see in the sketch above on the left.

Crosshatching is simply two directions of hatching layered atop one another. The more strokes you layer, the finer and darker the area is going to be.

Try to get a wide array of tones on your drawing ranging from very light to very dark. A true black is difficult to obtain with graphite because when the paper is saturated with graphite, it will glare. You can use charcoal in your pencil drawings to obtain a real black.

You can compare some of my old artworks I made on an A4 sized printing paper using only a cheap HB pencil I bought for Rs. 3 (0.0281 USD). Although they’re not photo-realistic, I assure you that you can draw remarkably better if you spend slightly more time on your work.

Artists who work with graphite lead praise its versatility. Harder and darker leads produce fine lines for more detailed pencil drawings, while soft and light lead is usually reserved for modeling and shading. Artists who make dark art pencil drawings often aim for sharp precision, while softer leads are more often associated with fluid, spontaneous lines. Typical drawing techniques include hatching, crosshatching, blending shades, and scumbling, in which the artist moves the pencil along the surface of the work in small circular motions. Artists often experiment with different kinds of pencils to make charcoal, watercolor, or colored pencil drawings. They also combine graphite lead with other mediums, including pastels, watercolors, and gouache, to spruce up monochromatic images. Pencil and ink drawings are also a common approach as the ink shades complement and play off one another.

Apply a masking fluid to your paper before drawing; the masking fluid will essentially block your graphite from reaching the paper. Then you can remove the masking fluid to reveal clean paper around your shading

A kneaded eraser very effectively removes graphite from the page, allowing you to define highlights in your work.

The negative space helps to find distances between the shapes. In the photo below, the negative space is the background around the cat, which helps you find the distances between the cat’s ears or toes.

Harder pencils are sharp and can be used for details. They’re easier to erase but more difficult to blend. You can use them for very light shading, but it would be difficult to shade a large area with a hard pencil.

Hope you will like it, and pardon if it already on quora, but I just shared it because I thought I have to share these amazing art work.

The blending of graphite works best with a paper stump or a small piece of sketch paper. Don’t rub the surface, however, because it ends up looking smudged. Strive for a nice and even application of pigment, which requires just a bit of blending. Blending tends to make all tones (values) look as the middle tone. Thus, it’s important to re-establish the darkest areas and to work on the highlights afterward.

This involves is applying the pigment using the side of a pencil tip. Such soft shading is necessary around the highlights for a realistic appearance.

High quality materials only mean that you’ll be significantly trouble-free and your artwork will come out as a better, long lasting product (not necessarily better art).

Tips on how to make amazing realistic art using different types of shading techniques

Produce unique textures by placing the paper over an object and rubbing your pencil back and forth. 

Invest in an eraser. Even if your pencil has an eraser on the end, it will be worn down in no time. A soft gum eraser or a “big pink” eraser (like a pencil eraser but larger) are both good choices, and typically retail for $1 or less.

A gum eraser removes less pigment than a kneaded eraser, so you can produce depth.

HB pencil is a fairly hard technical drawing pencil. It never gets darker than a medium gray, even if you fully fill in an area. Consequently a drawing may look technically accurate when drawn with HB pencil, that is, the geometry is correct, but it will not be photographic in quality.

Every drawing begins with a sketch. There are three main methods for getting the sketch just right which all involve extrapolating the information in front of you and using only what’s necessary, to relate objects to one another, understand the linear perspective and develop accurate forms.

If you’re just getting started with pencil drawing, you probably don’t want to be drawing on expensive paper from the get-go. It’s a good idea to invest in two types of paper: sketch paper, which is cheap and ideal for testing out ideas and refining pencil techniques; and higher-quality archival drawing paper, which is thicker and has a gentle “tooth” ideal for graphite, for when you’re ready to work on a final piece. 

Drawing with pencil is an accessible method of creating artwork at any skill level. It requires minimal materials, and even beginners have a strong grasp of how to use this medium.

For this approach, you’re only creating texture in a particular area. The type of paper you select (rough, with a bit of a tooth) is important. 

Though pricier, the Faber-Castell 9000 Graphite Pencils also come in sets of different grades of hardness and have superior black, break-resistant leads.

Pencil drawings can be rendered in so much photorealistic detail as to fool the eye, while a line drawing has the ability to communicate volumes more than what is shown on paper. Indeed, the humble pencil can be a powerful and versatile tool in the hands of a skilled and inspired artist. Whether you’re looking for highly detailed pencil drawings, rough sketches, colored pencil drawings, pencil with ink wash, or pencil with watercolor, we’re sure that you’ll discover works you love within our diverse selection of original pencil drawings for sale by artists from around the world.

Steps for creating a simple pencil drawingOnce you’ve practiced the various techniques and mark-making, you can implement them into a single drawing. 1. Sketch your subject

It depends on how good you are. I myself use only a single pencil. Sometimes I don’t even care if it’s HB or 2B, etc. I just pick up anything in my hand and start drawing something. I myself wouldn’t know how to use an array of pencils even I had the chance, since I’ve had no formal classes in drawing. It’s natural to me. So, a person can produce some hyper-realistic drawings using just a single pencil, or can mess the paper up with the finest pencils available. These are a few examples of drawings that I have done using only a normal HB pencil.

To make the soft shading shown in #3, you would move your pencil in a circular motion. By moving it back and forth with a light touch, you create a slightly different texture.

Even if you just washed your hands, there is always a tiny residue of oil on your skin that might go onto the paper and make the graphite more difficult to remove. For that reason, you might want to avoid blending with your finger. Experiment with different materials — tissue paper or cotton swabs works well for that purpose as well as stumps. Don’t throw away your stumps when they are dirty, as they can be used to apply a light layer of graphite.

Soft pencils are great for shading the darks and the middle tones. The most common medium soft graphite pencils are 2B pencils, which are usually used for general outlines and sketching.

Hatching is simply drawing parallel lines to fill a space with value. This is one of the most common forms of shading and mark making.

French Neoclassical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres is known for using limited shading and precise lines to draw his pencil portraits. Adrian Ludwig Richter is similarly recognized for his sharp, wiry lines. Many painters began as draftsmen, as they sketched studies for their painted works. Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, and Paul Cezanne, for example, sketched pencil drawings of flowers and landscape scenes. Gustav Klimt developed his own style as a draftsman, breaking away from the traditional three-dimensional shaded approach to create figures with pure line. His sketches like “Lasciviousness”  for his Beethoven Frieze (1902) instead emphasize the flatness of picture’s surface. Other famous pencil drawings include Willem de Kooning’s “Two Women” (1952) and Pablo Picasso’s “Still Life with Glass, Apple, Playing Card, and Package of Tobacco” (1913). Eugene Delacroix, Amedeo Modigliani, Edgar Degas, John Singer Sargent, Walter Osbourne, William Strang, and Stephen McKenna are just a few other artists known for their pencil drawings.

Thus whereas the 10B graphic below has a nice contrast range and distinct shadows, the drawing with the H pencil looks much flatter, fainter and less articulated. The image drawn with F is closest to HB in hardness.

While pencils don’t make the artist, being armed with the best equipment sets you up for drawing success. 

HB pencils can give a limited darkness. You can see that my picture is kind of bright and light(Don’t know the real terms for this, I’m self taught). I couldn’t make it more darker where it was supposed to be like the hair, cooling glass, shadings etc. But I am satisfied with this one, it’s my first one.

For a pencil that can create both broad strokes and precise lines, go with Cretacolor’s Monolith woodless pencil (included in this Cretacolor Silver Box Graphite Drawing Set). These pencils have a protective lacquer coating, are easy to sharpen and range in hardness from HB (medium) to 9B (extra soft).

Get yourself a good pencil sharpener. A great choice for beginners is a manual pencil sharpener with two openings. Each cavity is suitable for sharpening the pencil to a different type of tip; this means that every pencil can be sharpened to multiple points, making one more versatile.

Just Hb won’t make your art realistic. This is because Hb is not dark enough. Most times hb is used for sketching. Shading makes your drawing realistic and you need pencil with both dark and light tones to make realistic art. Most professional artist often prefers charcoal pencils more because of the dark tonal value it gives. For a beginner i would recommend the addition of other ‘ B’ pencils like 2b, 6b and 8b.

You can get realism to some extent while using a single shade pencil, you have to use range of pencils to achieve more realism. I use to draw only with single pencil and thought this is the best I can do and thats the most realistic drawing I can draw, I was happy with the results at that time. But then a few researches and googling forced me to buy Faber Castle 9000 series pencils. Believe me after using different shades I am never going to try a single shade on any drawing and if I do that I would not do justice to my drawing.
