Supplies to Gather Before Drawing
Before starting drawings, you must need some art tools. Here, I’m giving out a list of some must-have items that you should always keep with you.
Paper – Paper is the most important part of drawings. Cheap papers sometimes get torn off while erasing due to their low quality. So, choose your sketchbook or drawing pad wisely.
Pencil – Always remember to start your drawing with a pencil. If you start with a pencil, you can fix errors immediately while drawing. It’ll be a suggestion for beginners.
Pen – Pen plays a great role while you draw. After sketching with pencils, you can use fine point or fine liner pens for creating the final outline. Then you can erase the pencil marks.
Eraser – To fix any errors while drawing, using an eraser is a must. Picking a good brand eraser is also necessary to get a clean area. There are traditional erasers and kneaded erasers, you can pick whatever you like.
Ruler – There is no alternative to rulers to create a straight line. You never know when you need to draw a straight line! It would be best if you always kept a ruler with you whether you need it or not.
Compass – Compasses are the best friends for making perfect circles. For drawings, where you need to draw circles, a compass will help you. Keep a compass with you that works really well.
Marker – Markers are one of the best art tools, whether it’s for kids or adults. So, you should always keep a set of markers with you to help you outline and color the drawings.
According to my perspective as a professional artist, these were just some of the easiest drawing ideas. Any amateur or professionals can do all of the ideas I’ve given above.
