How To Draw With A Pencil: Mik Brown takes you through a pencil drawing with different shading pencils, plus he is also keen on mechanical pencils. As Mik demonstrates the basics for recognizing the degree of shading derived by the different pencils that are numbered and lettered according to their various degrees of softness, you can also see a little sketch going on. This will help you see what he is talking about.
Hello. I'm Mik Brown from Miko Illustration and Miko-Cartoon.com.
And now, I'm going to show you how to draw with pencils. There are a tremendous lot of pencils on the market. I tend to draw with these propelling pencils because you can; if they break, of course you can just usually bring the pencil down again.
And, again they differ in size. This is a 0.7, that's the size of the lead.
And this, I think is a 0.5. So, it's slightly smaller as well.
So, those I think are very, very useful. The others were probably more important of these, kind of wooden, the traditional wooden pencils. This is an H, which means it's hard.
So, that draws very lightly, very faintly. And if you're having trouble with pencils, you can do a lot of cross hatching. Like that.
This is quite a nice effect. So we're drawing something fine, something more detailed with this fine pencil. Then you have a 2H, and what in fact, I've got down here to a 4H, there it is, there is a 5H no less.
So again, actually that's even harder than the H that I was drawing with before. So don't again, because it's hard, it doesn't wear away as much as the softer pencils. Now, I have to go on.
They've heard of HP's, they all use HP's for drawing and writing. So again, that's slightly harder than the H and the 5H, and the 3H, and the 2H and et cetera. Now, I'm going on to the even softer than the heavy guy, both Bs, somewhere around, I've lost my B.
There's my B. So again, that was an HB. B is soft, so B, HB meaning hard-soft, and the B meaning softer.
There's no hardness to it even for little. Then again, with the 2B. So, you're going to get a 1B, you get a B, and then you get your 2B.
Again, they're all real good for shading, these darker ones. Then, this is the 5B, even darker still. So, again they're sort of useful for shading.
So you can see the effects we can get. But again, it sort of wears out, because it's soft, it wears out quicker. But it doesn't matter, you know, it's the effect.
You can just use a razor, no, not a razor, a pencil sharpener, to sharpen, that's what I got, a mechanical sharpener. So then and again, going on to 6B, if it's still around me for after Castell, they offer Gs of similar kind, certainly it's the same kind of grade. So, if your different manufacturer has a 6B, so a 6B, another manufacturer will be the same.
Well, that's a 6B. A 4, that's the 4, so the 4H was around here somewhere. So, going from 4H, we can see the difference to it.
6B and again, with pencils, it's important you can always rub them out. These, you attempt to make a bit of a mess, I want to be a little bit careful. But, yes, you can get these, these are kind of difficult to rub out.
But again, the rubber. If you make a mistake, it's no problem. Always rub out.
I use a rubber a lot. That's how to draw with pencils. .
