3 PENCILS :Hard pencils are H,2H,3H,up to 10H PENCILS :Hard pencils are H,2H,3H,up to 10H .These are used for the basic plain drawing . The soft ones are the B’s up to 12B.They are used for adding details ,shades volume ,chiaroscuro etc.INK: It is used with drawings that need precision.It can be diluted with water and it can create a great variety of tones.There are different types of inks but the most recommended is the Chinese ink.CHARCOAL :It is the fastest way to draw but some drawings do not last since it falls down easily.

5 WHEN LEARNING TO DRAW IT IS NECESSARY TO APPLY CERTAIN RULESTHAT ARE COMMON AND EASY TO FOLLOW.IT MAKES YOUR COMPOSITION MORE REALISTIC.PERSPECTIVE: DRAWING OR PAINTING TECHNIQUE IN WHICH OBJECTS APPEAR TO HAVE MORE DEPTH AND DISTANCE .ALSO OBJECTS CLOSER TO THE VIEWER APPEAR BIGGER WHILE THE ONES FARTHER AWAY APPEAR SMALLER. THE CLOSER ONES ARE DRAWN IN A LOWER PLANE WHILE THE FARTHER ONES ARE IN A HIGHER PLANE.TONAL PERSPECTIVE :THIS PERSPECTIVE FOLLOWS THE SAME CHARACTERISTICS AS THE ONE MENTIONED BEFORE. IT ALSO HAS TONES OR COLORS WHERE THE OBJECTS FARTHER AWAY ARE SHOWN IN A LIGHTER TONE WHILE THE ONES CLOSER APPEAR DARKER.
6 FOCAL POINT: THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT SEGMENT OR FIGURE IN A DRAWING,A POINT OF INTEREST,A POINT OF FOCUS.EVERY COMPOSITION MUST HAVE ONE . THIS MAKES THE WHOLE PICTURE MORE ATTRACTIVE.IT USUALLY HAS A DIFFERENT SIZE,SHAPE ,TONE OR COLOR.CONCAVITY: CURVE DRAWN INWARD . WHEN DRAWING ROUND OBJECTS IT IS USED AT THE BOTTOM SO AS AT THE TOP .SYMMETRICAL BALANCE: THIS IS SEEN IN FIGURES THAT ARE DIVIDED IN HALF AND EACH SIDE HAS THE SAME SHAPE AND SIZE. THERE IS A BALANCE. EXAMPLE: A BALL,PERSONS,CARS
7 HIGHLIGHT: A PORTION OF LIGHT ADDED TO A FIGURE TO MAKE IT MORE REAL AND OUTSTANDING. JUXTAPOSSITION:PLACING FIGURES SIDE BY SIDE AS THEY APPEAR TO THE VIEWER THOUGH THEY ARE INDIFFERENT PLANES.
