The art of pencil drawing is entertaining, fun, and building your skills as an Artist!

There are many stages involved in becoming a professional in pencil drawing art, before you get recognition for your masterpieces. If you are a beginner in pencil drawing, you might want to look at resources that train you in and through each of these stages. The first place to be is with an expert who understands all of the stages and processes.

In addition, you can leverage trainers and drawing resources that continually show you how to improve on your work, as well as those that provide you feedback on your projects. This website will offer adequate resources that guide you in every stage of the process. 

First, professional artists who have themselves, developed from armature drawing using ink, pencil, pen and charcoal are the best to learn from since they know the processes to success, through experience.

These professionals, who have long-term experience in pencil drawing art, and who understand what beginners in any level need to succeed, are the ones we commit to write our resources, which include monthly newsletter, blog updates, tutorials and website articles. They will either practically lead you through it via tutorials, direct you to professional resources they know of, and provide insights and ideas you can implement to improve on drawing skills.


Written tutorials are very helpful if you are learning to draw from scratch with a pencil, pen or charcoal. The intention of writing a tutorial is to make sure, that the user can follow the process step-by-step even if they have never before done what is being shown. You will realize that there are many skills and strategies involved in drawing, and therefore, a written record for your referral is to be appreciated.

You can learn a skill first-hand using a tutorial on our website, and then refer to the material later on to practice repeatedly in order to master the techniques. 

These tutorials can also be used at the comfort of your home or school. Professionals who have learned how to develop interactive tutorials in different computer and mobile environments will be helpful in your learning journey.  

Learning the steps into becoming a professional artist also requires persistent and dedication, but it is quite easy. With us, you will have people who not only encourage you into it but also show you drawing resources that are easily accessible from your home, workplace and school environment to help you out in becoming a professional artist.

At the end, you realize you save on current resources and do not have to commit huge amount of money to buy expensive things to train how to draw. For instance, any false starts and misplaced lines are likely to occur during the initial stages and they will be revealed in tonal drawing.

You therefore might want to train yourself to, always start sketching on a separate sheet of paper to plan for your final piece, then on an intermediate tracing paper. These skills are transferred onto a drawing paper via the tracing sheet.

 You can also invest in purchasing a pantograph (you can make your own) where you can scale your drawings up or down and save you the time of tracing your work.

When transferring an image using a tracing paper, you might also want to use a light box or light coming through the window in order to shine the lines of the image in the intermediate paper onto the separate drawing paper. Make sure to align the two papers, then tape them, and then trace the guidelines.  

The best part of drawing is practicing it, not reading about it. Our tutorials might be just what you need to get started and get motivation, since you can follow them at the comfort of your desk. How about you receiving feedback from us about your work? Every learning process is considered beneficial if there is some form of feedback and information exchange, and that is how people are able to measure knowledge and skill transfer.

We provide adequate platforms to interact with you about any challenges in your initial and advanced drawing projects. This is also an opportunity for you to get personalized attention from professionals who write our newsletters and tutorials. 

In this regard, you can directly contact us and interact with professionals through emails, social media pages, or blogs. Besides, you can also share with the community or us about your success stories about a project in your kitchen. Our newsletter is one resource you can take advantage of to see what other beginners and professionals in pencil drawing art are up to and how far they have come. We also feature custom drawing projects from real people, and these will challenge you to improve your skills.  These are a must-do if you wish to rise above the norm in your artwork.

Besides, the field of drawing is full of opportunities. We will offer industry updates about these opportunities, and how you can take advantage of these as well as give you news about industry changes (be it about drawing materials or otherwise) that affect you as an artist.
