Gradient shading is a must for pencil drawing skills. It is with the help of it that a background is created for the completion of the future drawing. Creating a background is quite a responsible job. His drawing is sometimes difficult, especially for beginners. If it is wrong to do the shading, there is a possibility that the pattern may be spoiled. But, if you take into account all the tips and try to follow the instructions in this article, the work will be quick and easy. Drawing a gradient shading pencil for beginners, we will do in several stages, in order to well understand the sequence of all manipulations. First, take a pencil HB and with the help of short thin lines make a marking of the direction of future hatching. We will need such a preparation so that in the process of working on the hatching we can not get off the right direction. That during the drawing of hatching it does not become twisted, we will make the strokes more frequent. Now try to fill in the blanks on the sheet between the strokes that are very noticeable. It is important, in this case, not to lose the direction that we have chosen initially. During the hatching, we follow the appearance ofdark spots. Ideally, they generally should be absent, and the shading should be even with the same shade (at this stage). If we adhere to this rule, the overall picture will turn out to be very beautiful and correct. Well, in the event that dark spots still have a place to be, they need to be removed. As a rule, use a nag to remove excess graphite. But to do such a procedure you need to be extremely careful, as the material is sticky and there may be some damage on the paper, which in no way can be allowed. To lighten a too dark area, you will need to touch the dark spot with a pointed end. Further, as we see in the figure, you just needfill in all the gaps, including the edges of our drawing. It is impossible to make strokes too long, otherwise they can lead, that will spoil all the work done. correctly put the strokes short, a short distance from each other. Now we will draw the darkest places of the background, without violating the basic rule - uniformity. For this purpose a pencil is used that has a softer rod, for example pencil 2B. Now we change the pencil again. We need 8B (the softest of all available) to go through them all the darkest parts of the background image. Now proceed to the edges. Here, all gaps, if any, need to be eliminated. After that, you can make a fringing with a conventional ruler. Just do not put too much pressure on the pencil. The line should not be pronounced.
