However, what you should know is that you can go far with limited and suitable supplies, such as the sketching pencilsketching paper, rubber graphite eraser, metallic sharpener and etc..

Don't press too heavily

A sketch is intended to be the base or draft of an image. Therefore, when you start your sketch you should use a light hand and lots of short, quick strokes. This will make it easier to test out different ways of drawing a particular object, and will allow you to erase mistakes much easier as well.

Draw lines to measure the distance

Apply the 70/30 rule

Less can be more! The 70/30 rule helps you create effective compositions. The idea is that 30 per cent of your sketch is filled with the main focus and detail, and the remaining 70 per cent is filler.
