Re: These are my drawings, help?

Pencils range from 9b(darkest) - 9h(lightest)
Unless you have the technology,you have to grid yourself.Anything from 1cm-1inch squares whatever your comfortable with.Do NOT press the pencil hard when gridding as all grid lines will need erasing,or blended into the Artwork.

Re: These are my drawings, help?

You don't need griding paper to make a grid for drawing just a ruler!

My personal favorit pencils/charcoal are Generals but you might need to try a few differnt brands before you find what suites you best.

Re: These are my drawings, help?

I dont like griding i desires of being an apprentice at a tattoo shop, i want to rely more on imagination and eye and hand cordination and what i visualize in my head. thank you though! :)
im going to look alot more into my pencils and utensils, and topics of drawing, im trying to draw a possible tattoo, for when i turn 18 i want to get covered.

Re: These are my drawings, help?

alright if you want a good pencil that is not wood get a straedler mars technino lead holder the weight never changes and if you get the lead pointer (sharpener that gives you a precise point or dull point). it will make it possible to draw with a feeling of a wood encased pencil but better lead. good paper for tattoo drawings that i found is
1. canson drawing paper rouph surface
2.strathmore 400 series smooth
3.strathmore bristol smooth
for the last 2 I would reccomend cutting the paper into increments of 4 so the paper is smaller and you get more for your money plus tattoos dont require a big piece of paper on average good luck and hope this helps.

p.s. best sketching lead is 2h because it is not too hard to indent paper and not too soft to stain the white of the paper

Re: These are my drawings, help?

Okay sweet, i was planning on going to the hobby store nearby and some others to spend some extra cash on all the items to improve my work, These drawings were ALL done in class instead of doing school work, I think if i commit and apply myself i can make great work, especially since these were done with pencil and standard bic pens Hahahaha.

Re: These are my drawings, help?

1.MAKE a portfolio so tattoo shops can see your potential
2.draw lightly and darken later with a b pencil never push down with pressure though :D
