So you want to become a better artist by “learning how to sketch” to better your drawings, right? Well, you've come to the perfect page in doing so. Sketching has been around for centuries, even the Cavemen have done this. As an artist, you must explore the various ways/styles of art and techniques in order to better yourself. Trying out things you never liked is like a weapon. Like they always say in economics, as well as a basic logical principle “knowledge is power” and it really is. Consider getting yourself the proper tools to learn “how to sketch”, so you can establish yourself in the artist world of sketching. It would be preferred to accompany your artist hand with a pack of sketching pencils (you can get a cheap set at Walmart for around 5$). These are the essential tools when sketching. They vary in tones and widths; they also have varied life lengths. A high quality sketch pencil set can be found at Michaels or DickBlick. Get yourself an eraser. Hi-Polyester or a Kneaded one is perfectly fine since sketching will require frequent erasing. There are also eraser pencils which are simply erasers more narrow and easy to use for small details that larger erasers can't scope out. A good sharpener is also preferred since there will definitely be lots of sharpening in the process. Getting nice clean paper (NEVER LINED) is important, especially when you're using a set of sketching pencils. Explore this drawing category and see what you can scale to your artistic needs.
