Have you prepared the right pencil type? There are, in general, two types of drawing pencil that artists often use. The first is pencil with soft lead and the second is one with hard lead. The soft lead is more convenient to use for drawing black and thick lines than pencil with harder lead. However, because the lead of that pencil is soft, you may need to sharpen it frequently. The lines drawn by using soft lead are also prone to being smudged. Therefore, think thoroughly before deciding whether to choose pencil with soft lead or one with hard lead. Based on the level of hardness of the pencil’s lead, there are several pencils with certain grades that you can buy. Pencil with the hardest lead is graded 4H and pencil with the softest lead is graded B4. Between the two extremes of the continuum, you can find pencils that are graded 2H, H, HB, F, B, and B2. As said earlier, if you choose a pencil with soft lead, you have to sharpen it frequently. If you think that sharpening job is a hassle, you can use a pencil with replaceable lead instead.
Besides the pencil, one drawing tool that you must also have is eraser. Be sure to buy more than one eraser because if you use only one, the eraser will eventually get dirty. If it becomes dirty, it cannot be used to effectively erase erroneous lines.
Pencil drawings are much easier to create than drawings made by using other instruments. If you want to create good drawings by using pencil, make sure that you have enough skill to do that and have the right pencil to create your drawings.

For beginners, drawing by copying is very useful. Allowing one to correct mistakes in the estimates of lengths can gives training to the eye. With perspective of the models, it also gives a knowledge of form and construction.
To draw figures in proper proportion we need proportion accurate eye measurement. The whole figure model looks out of proportion if the head is drawn twice as long as it should be, because the head seems unnatural. Body should be made in sizes relative to their proportions, and compared to each other. Using some ordinary object as a standard measure is an effective exercise for learning. It is important to draw relative proportions and draw it carefully.
Draw two objects of different sizes together is good for a more advanced exercise, such as a cardboard box with an orange on top. Draw them in relative proportion until you can. Practice this exercise over and over with the same starting two objects (box and an orange) but add different third objects from memory.
Beginners have to learn about scale of drawing. One of the biggest mistakes they make is to draw on too small of a scale. In copying drawings from books or magazines the beginner naturally copies it as is, at that size. For a simple exercise, you can repeat the same drawing at different sizes. Use simple objects you find around you as models, and draw them in a perfect scale. You can place your objects against contrasting backgrounds, the eye will focus on form.
