Pencil drawing is the foundation of the arts, but in the hands of an experienced artist it can stand on its own as a thing of beauty. This guide includes fundamental information about tools and techniques, as well as step-by-step lessons and advice from five different artists. Drawings by beginners tend to be stiff, so the examples here show you how to make more dimensional, realistic images of a wide variety of animals, flowers, and landscapes, while a separate section explains the basics of portraiture.
