Pencil drawings are just as detailed as a painting. Opting for just the graphite allows you to use different tones to show color indication and depth in your picture.
Find which technique you like to work with:
- Shading with smudging is a great way to move the pencil marks around your pictures leaving smooth light marks.
- Cross hatching makes for an interesting look and feel that can be combined with smudging.
- Dots with a pencil is also great and can be combined with any of the techniques.
You can choose one technique or all.
