What pencil is used for sketching?

If you think I am crazy, you might be in for a shock. But that’s what I thought! When pencils aren’t an option, you should start out with a pencil and paper. There’s a large group of people who use them, and every year I find something new. You’ll never use a pencil and paper the same way.

If you are drawing using a pencil and paper, what medium do you go for? I used to sketch on my iPhone, but now I use IKONON pencil on my iPad. The best thing about these three is that they’re not distracting. They’re easy to use. They’re thin and you can use them anywhere. Plus, you can use them in pencil.


If you are using a digital tablet to sketch, do you go for a certain colour or do you use different shades of grey? To get a consistent and even colour, I like to use darker grey and lighter colours of the same colour.

Have you ever drawn a human inked on the face? Absolutely. I got all my illustrations done in this way. If I can get the drawings in, I draw a sketch on the surface of the drawing paper first, and then draw a drawing as an original. That way I know I can make an attempt and I don’t have to waste time trying to make the drawings look right before drawing them.

Do you have any particular type of pencil or pen that you love? I use a fine point pencil, and I love my Viberg.

What is the most important part about drawing? The most important thing is the drawing itself.

I have a very personal reason for wanting to draw in a notebook. My father wanted me to draw everything, so he would draw and write everything on my sketchbooks. I never really
