Home ยป Drawing Pencils Sets

These are what YOU need to have in a good drawing pencil set and start your own pencil drawings.

  • Tool #1: At least 3 graphite pencils (B, HB and 2B OR, HB, 2B and 4B),
  • Tool #2: A piece of pencil eraser and
  • Tool #3: A piece of pencil sharpener.
  • Tool #4: A pencil case - organize yourself! ;-)

Of course, a piece of paper and a drawing table or a smooth surface folder are also needed but these aren't included as a set of drawing pencil.

That's it!

Now let's see one by one... (Pst! If you want to contribute in saving our earth, follow this link to learn about Recycled Pencils).

Drawing Pencil Set Tool #1

Do you wonder why you need at least 3 different types of graphite pencils (B, HB and 2B OR, HB, 2B and 4B) to draw a good pencil drawing?

The answer is simple...use these 3 types of graphite pencil and you can create a realistic pencil drawing by creating tones in your drawing. Make your pencil drawings real.

I've found the best graphite drawing pencil set that you can use to draw. (Click on the image to view detail) It consists of:

  • 2 graphite pencils (2H, HB)
  • 3 woodless graphite pencils (2B, 4B and 6B)
  • 3 compressed graphite sticks (2B, 4B and 6B)
  • 1 eraser

These are several frequently asked questions regarding drawing pencil:

  1. Do you know what are HB pencil, 2B pencil and 4B pencil?
  2. When was the pencil invented? (You can download a free article)

Drawing Pencil Set Tool #2

A piece of pencil eraser. An eraser or a rubber is an article of stationery that is used for removing pencil and sometimes pen writings.

Typical erasers are made of rubber, but more expensive or specialized erasers can also contain vinyl, plastic, or gum-like materials.

Erasers have a rubbery consistency, and they are often white, brown or pink although with modern materials they can be any color at all. Many pencils are equipped with an eraser on one end.

Do you know what types of pencil erasers? (Click here if you're not sure...)

Drawing Pencil Set Tool #3

A piece of pencil sharpener. A pencil sharpener (also referred to as pencil parer) is a device for sharpening a pencil's point by shaving one end. Pencil sharpeners exist in both electric and hand-powered forms.

Do you know what types of pencil sharpeners for artists?

There are several types of pencil sharpeners that are available nowadays. Follow the link to learn more about Pencil Sharpeners.

Tool #4 - A pencil case.

Go pencil, go!

A piece of advice here...

You might face some problems to get your own set of drawing pencil which consists of varieties of pencil grades. I myself couldn't find a complete drawing pencil set that I want in my local stationary stores. You either find a same pencil grade in 3's, 6's or 12's per pack! (If you still love to get the same pencil grade per pack... Click here!)

Yet, you might need a series of pencil grades in your drawing pencil set to start your drawings and sketchings.

But, how are you going to find the best set?

Don't worry, here, I've searched the best-value-for-money for you to get your drawing pencil set online...

Let's find out what are available online...
