What are the best pencils for sketching?
For detail, you want H pencils and for adding shading and texture, you will want B pencils. The hardness of the pencil’s graphite core is usually marked on the side of the pencil. The higher the number, the harder the graphite and the lighter the mark left on the paper. The standard sketching pencil is HB or 2B.
What are the best sketchbooks?
Of course, you can sketch on any type of paper however I recommend getting a good sketchbook. Not only will it help with your drawings it is a great way to record your progress. Sketchbooks can also be a wonderful visual journal. I personally like spiral bound sketchbooks as they are easy to keep the page open, but you need one that feels good to you. The size doesn’t really matter. If you want to sketch on the go be sure to choose something smaller that will easily fit into a purse or backpack.
Here are some popular brands.

My Best Tip:
The biggest thing to remember is you don’t have to be perfect. Art is for everyone and is an amazing positive creative outlet. All you need to do is relax and have fun!
