Hello people,

Top of the evening to you. I'm glad to have stumble on this rather interesting forum. Hope everyone is doing great.

I recently started sketching. It's something I've always been fascinated about but have never really tried.
Now I wish to advance my skills and get some advise on tools and techniques.

Some of my amateur sketches are attached for your objective feedback :biggrin:

Thank ya in advance :smile:

Tip number 1: Learn to draw with the edges of the pencil lead too.

Tip number 2: Learn to draw with shading and avoid lines.


Tip number 3: Learn to incorporate the texture of the paper.
