What supplies do you need for sketching? If you want to sketch, you may want to start with the following supplies:
Pencils (traditional or mechanical)
A pencil sharpener
A nice sketchbook
Depending on what you’re looking to create you may want other supplies like rulers, pencils with different hardnesses of graphite and more.
Which type of pencil is best for sketching? In general, it’s good to start with a medium hardness pencil like a HB pencil because they’re easy to erase and won’t leave behind too much graphite on the paper. However, if you’re working on different types of artwork like watercolour, you may want pencils with harder or softer graphite. Mechanical pencils are also an option if you like a crisp line as you work.
Which paper is best for sketching? You’ll want a paper that’s around 75-90 gsm that either has a light texture or is completely smooth. In general, you’ll want to look for a paper that’s thick enough for you to erase and correct any mistakes without easily tearing. You can also use heavyweight paper, it’s just not necessary if you’re creating a sketch or drawing using completely dry media.
