Smile New to Sketching and the Artist Forum... Tips will be highly appreciated :)

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

Thank ya in advance

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.

These are very nice and a good start. I think Just pretty much covered the things you can use to help improve your overall affect. You obviously have skill, now it simply needs to be refined.

Welcome to the forum! Glad you joined us.

Grateful to Jesus for everything!
