5 Must-Have Drawing Tools; Don't Dare To Miss It

Most of us began drawing young. Drawing tools and equipment were not of such interest to us at that time. They may not even have been noticed. On certain notebook paper, a regular pencil would always work. But as we grew and evolved as an artist, the drawing tools we chose became even more essential. The link of quality drawing tools and quality artwork is evident along the way, and it’s no wonder young artists want the best materials possible. If you start to get careful about your art, regardless of your age, you can begin to get serious about the tools you use.

Drawing Tools – Use The Best Pencils

We will begin with the most obvious thing–quality pencils. Each artist finds a brand they relate to when it’s about using drawing pencils. There’s no way to see your favorite brand unless you try a couple.

Drawing Tools- Sketchbook

One of the essential items an artist can have is a sketchbook. Here we are talking about an “active sketchbook” that gets your regular attention. All can “sell” a book with blank drawing paper pages. But the one that is carefully drawn in is the one you should prefer buying.

Best Drawing Surfaces

Upon any surface, a drawing may be made, but the consistency of that surface is often as critical as the medium on which it is used. A few considerations to make before deciding on drawing surfaces.

Texture Of The Paper – The composition of the paper plays a part in the acceptance of the drawing material on the surface.  Bulkier structures produce “broken” lines, while smoother textures show smoother edges and value gradations.

Weight Of The Paper:  The importance of the document corresponds to the weight of the print by 500 pieces. The weight of the paper is closely related to the thickness of the paper on certain materials.

Drawing Tools – Erasers

Different erasers leave different marks on your paper that can be used as per the particular illustration method when appropriate.

Rubber Eraser–The automatic graphite eraser.  This eraser extracts substance from the layer through rubbing.

Kneaded–Instead of utilizing pressure for elimination, the eraser removes content off the floor. You can easily remove this and make different markings with use.  The eraser gets sticky with time but worries not you can easily wipe and kneed it.

Plastic Erasers –Bunch’s best eraser.  This can delete virtually everything.  But just be cautioned— if you’re not careful, this eraser will tear the page.

Pencil Sharpener

Pencils need sharpening with a standard pencil sharpener.  Using a low-quality sharpener, and in a matter of moments, you might be out of a pen. Pencil sharpeners usually fall under two categories— manual and electrical.

Electric- These sharpeners may vary. The more money you pay, the better quality you get.

Manual- The manual sharpeners, come in a variety of forms. We would recommend using a portable metal sharpener. It’s a compact, easy-to-replace, cheap solution.


Nothing includes all these resources and equipment for serious drawing. (You need a mark-making medium and a surface.) But if you get serious about your job, you probably get serious about your materials and equipment as well, and that list is what I find to be’ important.’
