Drawing tips needed please help?
I have a thing for art. My Father used to be an artist but he was a painter, I prefer drawing over painting and my mother doesn't have an artistic bone in her body. None of my friends are of any help and I have asked fellow artists on Deviantart but no one has actually given me any tips!
I need tips for these;
1: What is the best pencil to use to draw/sketch?
2: Is coloring my art reccomended after I draw?
3: What do you reccomend I use for warm ups?
4: Any good art books out there I can try to find?
5: Best sketch book brand?
6: Best pencil set?
also any tips on actual drawing techniques would be nice. Thanks!
Example of my drawings. I used a mechanical pencil and a number 2 pencil.
