I heard them debating the point, but I avoided being drawn in. He sensed winter drawing on. She drew on her cape and gloves.
The biography has drawn heavily on personal interviews. You'll find she's quite interesting if you take the trouble to draw her out. The boat drew out from the wharf.
She drew her money out of the bank and invested it in bonds. The officer drew up his men. Their car drew up at the curb.
Draw, drag, haul, pull imply causing movement of an object toward one by exerting force upon it. To draw is to move by a force, in the direction from which the force is exerted: A magnet draws iron to it.
To drag is to draw with the force necessary to overcome friction between the object drawn and the surface on which it rests: To haul is to transport a heavy object slowly by mechanical force or with sustained effort: To pull is to draw or tug, exerting varying amounts of force according to the effort needed: Related Words for drawing picture , sketch , layout , etching , study , depiction , design , graphics , likeness , painting , cartoon , representation , delineation , portrayal , doodle , outline , tracing , comp , storyboard.
Contemporary Examples of drawing Our animators are very excited to be drawing the innards of a human being. Howard December 27, Shelley December 26, With closed contours, carefully set hair-and-shadow strokes, and precise parallel hachures, they attained plastic values by purely graphic means.
The pure pen drawing took its place by the side of other highly esteemed art forms. The English Art Nouveau artist Aubrey Beardsley at the end of the 19th century applied the direct black—white contrast to planes, while in the 20th century the French masters Henri Matisse and Picasso reduced the object to a mere line that makes no claim to corporeal illusion.
A large number of illustrators, as well as the artists who draw the comic strips, prefer the clear pen stroke.
In the hair-thin automatist seismograms so-called because of their resemblance to the records of earthquakes of the 20th-century German artist Wols Alfred Otto Wolfgang Schulze , which are sensitive to the slightest stirring of the hand, this theme leads to a new dimension transcending all traditional concepts of a representational art of drawing.
Although the brush is best suited to the flat application of pigments—in other words, to painting—its use in a clearly delineatory function, with the line dominating and a crucial property of brush drawing in monochrome fashion, can be traced back to prehistoric times.
All of the above-mentioned drawing inks have been used as dyes in brush drawings, often with one and the same pigment employed in combined pen-and-brush work.
Still greater differentiation in tone is often obtained through concentrated or thinned mediums and with the addition of supplementary ones.
To the latter belong chiefly distemper, a paint in which the pigments are mixed with an emulsion of egg or size or both, and watercolours, which can be used along with bistre and drawing ink.
Even oils can sometimes be used for individual effects in drawing, as in the works of Jacob Jordaens.
Sinopia , the preliminary sketch for a monumental wall painting , was done with the brush and has all the characteristics of a preparatory, form-probing drawing.
The sketch was carried out directly on the appropriate spot and covered over with a thin layer of plaster, on which the pictorial representation was then painted.
The brush drawing differs from the pen drawing by its greater variation in stroke width, and by the stroke itself, which sets in more smoothly and is altogether less severely bordered.
Early brush drawings nonetheless show a striking connection with the technique of the pen drawing. The early examples of the 15th century completely follow the flow of contemporaneous pen drawings.
The brush drawing for chiaroscuro sheets on tinted paper was popular because Chinese white, the main vehicle of delineation in this method, is more easily applied with the brush than the pen and because the intended pictorial effect is more easily attained, thanks to the possibility of changing abruptly to a plane representation.
Such representations are particularly distinctive as done by Vittore Carpaccio and Palma il Giovane in Venice and in a Mannerist spotting technique used by Parmigianino.
In the 16th century, the brush nevertheless played a greater role as a supporting than as an independently form-giving instrument. Pure brush drawings were rare even in the 17th century, although the brush played a major role in landscapes, in which, by tinting of varying intensity, it ideally fulfilled the need to provide for all desired degrees of spatial depth and strength of lighting.
Dutch artists, such as Adriaen Brouwer , Adriaen van Ostade , and Jan Steen , as well as the French artist Claude Lorrain , transcended the limits of drawing in the narrower meaning of the term by doing brushwork limited to a few tones within a monochrome scale, giving the impression of a pictorial watercolour.
The brush drawings of the Spanish painter Francisco Goya must also be counted among the great achievements of this technique. In his strong plastic effects, the English painter George Romney made the most of the contrast between the white foundation and the broad brushstrokes tinted in varying intensities.
Turner , took advantage of the delicately graded pictorial possibilities for their landscape studies. In modern drawing, the brush has regained some importance as an effective medium for contrasting planes and as carrier of the theme; in this, the dry brush has proven itself a useful tool for the creation of a granular surface structure.
The combination of various techniques plays a greater role in drawing than in all other art forms. Yet it is necessary, in the numerous drawings in which two or more mediums are involved, to distinguish between those in which the mediums were changed in the course of artistic genesis and those in which an artistic effect based on a combination of mediums was intended from the beginning.
In the first case, one is confronted with a preliminary sketch, as it were, of the eventual drawing: Most pen drawings are thus superimposed on a preliminary sketch.
The different materials actually represent two separate stages of the same artistic process. More relevant artistically is the planned combination of different techniques that are meant to complement each other.
The most significant combination from the stylistic point of view is that of pen and brush, with the pen delineating the contours that denote the object and the brush providing spatial and plastic as well as pictorial—that is, colour—values.
The simplest combined form is manuscript illumination , where the delineated close contours are filled in with colour.
More important is brushwork that supplements linear drawing, in which entire segments may be given over to one technique or the other; for example, the considerable use of white which is hard to apply with the pen in drawings on tinted paper.
In similar complementary fashion the brush may be used for plastic modelling as a way of highlighting, that is indicating the spots that receive the greatest illumination.
The technique of combined pen-and-brush drawing was favoured by the draftsmen of Germany and the Netherlands, especially in the circle around Dürer and the south German Danube School.
Shadows, too, can be inserted in a drawing with dark paint. The illusion of depth can also be achieved with white and dark colours in a pure chalk technique.
In contrast to these methods, which still belong to a linear system of drawing, is the flat differentiation of individual segments of a work in usually the same medium: Various bodies and objects are evenly tinted with the brush within or along the drawn contours.
Planes are thus contrasted with lines, enhancing the illusionary effect of plasticity, space, and light and shadow. This modelling wash has been used again and again since the 16th century, sometimes in combination with charcoal, chalk, or pencil drawings.
A further refinement, used particularly in landscape drawings, is wash in varying intensities; additional shadings in the sense of atmospheric phenomena, such as striking light and haze merging into fog and cloud, can be rendered through thinning of the colour or repeated covering over a particular spot.
A chromatic element entered drawing with the introduction of diluted indigo , known in the Netherlands from the East India trade; it is not tied to objects but used in spatial and illusionist fashion, by Paul Brill and Hans Bol in the 16th and 17th centuries, for example.
The mutual supplementation and correlation of pen and brush in the wash technique was developed most broadly and consistently in the 17th century, in which the scaffold, so to speak, of the pen drawing became lighter and more open, and brushwork integrated corporeal and spatial zones.
The transition from one technique to the other—from wash pen drawings to brush drawings with pen accents—took place without a break.
Claude Lorrain and Nicolas Poussin in 16th- and 17th-century France are major representatives of the latter technique, and Rembrandt once again utilized all its possibilities to the full.
Whereas this method served—within the general stylistic intentions of the 17th century—primarily to elucidate spatial and corporeal proportions, the artists of the 18th century employed it to probe this situation visually with the aid of light.
The unmarked area, the spot left empty, has as much representational meaning as the pen contours, the lighter or darker brush accent, and the tinted area.
The art of omission plays a still greater role, if possible, in the later 19th century and in the 20th. As the colouring becomes increasingly varied through the use of watercolours to supplement a pen or metalpoint drawing, one leaves the concept of drawing in the strict sense of the term.
The combination of dry and fluid drawing mediums provides a genuine surface contrast that may be exploited for sensuous differentiation.
Here again a distinction must be made between various ways of applying the identical medium—for example, charcoal and charcoal dust in a water solution or, more frequently, sanguine and sanguine rubbed in with a wet brush—and the stronger contrast brought about by the use of altogether different mediums.
Chalk drawings are frequently washed with bistre or watercolour, after the principle of the washed pen drawing. Stronger contrasts, however, can be obtained if the differing techniques are employed graphically, as the Flemish draftsmen of the 17th century liked to do.
The Chinese ink wash of chalk drawings also contributes to the illusion of spatial depth. Along with such Dutch painters as Jan van Goyen and members of the family van de Velde, Claude Lorrain achieved great mastery in this technique.
The differentiated treatment of the foreground with pen and brush and the background with chalk renders spatial depth plausible and plastic.
Mechanical aids are far less important for art drawing than for any other art form. Many draftsmen reject them altogether as unartistic and inimical to the creative aspect of drawing.
Apart from the crucial importance that mechanical aids have had and continue to have for all kinds of construction diagrams, plans, and other applied drawings, some mechanical aids have been used in varying but significant measure for artistic drawings.
The ruler, triangle, and compass as basic geometric instruments have played a major role, especially in periods in which artists created in a consciously constructionist and perspectivist manner.
Marks for perspective constructions may be seen in many drawings of early and High Renaissance vintage.
For perspectively correct rendition, the graticulate frame, marked off in squares to facilitate proportionate enlargement or reduction, allowed the object to be drawn to be viewed in line with a screen on the drawing surface.
Fixed points can be marked with relative ease on the resultant system of coordinates. For portrait drawings, the glass board used into the 19th century had contours and important interior reference points marked on it with grease crayons or soap sticks, so that they could be transferred onto paper by tracing or direct copying.
Both processes are frequently used for preliminary sketches for engravings to be duplicated, as is the screened transmission of a preliminary sketch onto the engraving plate or, magnifying, the painting surface.
In such cases the screen lies over the preparatory drawing. Mirrors and mirror arrangements with reducing convex mirrors or concave lenses were likewise used especially in the 17th and 18th centuries as drawing aids in the preparation of reproductions.
Even when it was a matter of the most exact rendition of topographical views, such apparatus, as well as the camera obscura a darkened enclosure having an aperture usually provided with a lens through which light from external objects enters to form an image on the opposite surface , were frequently employed.
In a darkened room the desired section is reflected through a lens onto a slanting mirror and from that inverse image is reflected again onto the horizontally positioned drawing surface.
Lateral correction can be obtained by means of a second mirror. Unless the proportions do not allow it, true-to-scale reducing or enlarging can also be carried out with the aid of the tracing instrument called the pantograph.
When copying, the crayon or pencil inserted in the unequally long feet of the device reproduces the desired contours on the selected scale.
Most of these aids were thus used in normal studio practice and for the preparation of certain applied drawings. Equally practical, but useful only for closely circumscribed tasks, were elliptic compasses, curved rulers, and stencils, particularly for ornamental and decorative purposes.
Mechanically produced drawings—such as typewriter sketches, computer drawings, oscillograms—and drawings done with the use of a projector, all of which can bring forth unusual and attractive results, nevertheless do not belong to the topic because they lack the immediate creativity of the art drawing.
Applied and technical drawings differ in principle from art drawings in that they record unequivocally an objective set of facts and on the whole disregard aesthetic considerations.
The contrast to the art drawing is sharpest in the case of technical project drawings, the purpose of which is to convey not so much visual plausibility as to give exact information that makes possible the realization of an idea.
Such plans for buildings, machines, and technical systems are not instantly readable because of the orthogonal independent projection, the division into separate planes of projection, and the use of symbols.
Prepared as a rule with such technical aids as ruler and compass, they represent a specialized language of their own, which must be learned. For topographic detailed delineation of the features of a place and cartographic map-making drawings, too, a special terminology has developed that above all systematizes spatial representations, making them intelligible to the expert with the aid of emblems and symbols.
Equally far removed from any claim to artistic standing are most illustrations serving scientific purposes, the aim of which is to record as objectively as possible the characteristic and typical features of a given phenomenon.
The systematic drawings, used especially in the natural sciences to explain a system or a function, resemble plans; descriptive and naturalistic illustrations, on the other hand, approach the illusionistic plausibility of visual experience and can attain an essentially artistic character.
A good many artists have drawn scientific illustrations, and their works—the botanical and zoological drawings of the Swiss Merian family in the 17th and 18th centuries, for example—are today more esteemed for their artistic than for their documentary value.
Of a similarly ambivalent nature is the illustrative drawing that perhaps does not go beyond a simple pictorial rendition of a literary description but because of its specific formal execution may still satisfy the highest artistic demands.
Great artists have again and again illustrated Bibles, prayer books, novels, and literature of all kinds. From such overdrawn types developed continuous picture stories that could dispense to a considerable extent with the explanatory text.
Modern cartoons are based on these picture stories. Through the formally identical treatment of peculiar types, these drawings acquire an element of consecutiveness that, by telling a continuing story, adds a temporal dimension to two-dimensional drawing.
This element is strongest in trick drawings that fix on paper, in brief segments of movement, invented creatures and phenomena that lack all logical plausibility; a rapid sequence of images leafing through the pages, seeing it projected on the screen turns the whole into apparent motion, the fundamental process of animation.
The artistic achievement, if any, lies in the original invention; its actual realization is predetermined and sometimes carried out by a large and specialized staff of collaborators, often with the aid of stencils and traced designs.
Moreover, since the final result is partially determined by the mechanical multiplication, an essential criterion of drawing—the unity of work and result—does not apply.
Anything in the visible or imagined universe may be the theme of a drawing. In practice, however, by far the greatest number of art drawings in the Western world deal with the human figure.
This situation springs from the close bond between drawing and painting: Yet, so rounded, self-contained, and aesthetically satisfying are these drawings that their erstwhile role as handmaidens to the other pictorial arts can be reconstructed only from knowledge of the completed work, not from the drawing itself.
This situation is especially true of a pictorial theme that acquired, at a relatively early stage, an autonomous rank in drawing itself: Drawn 15th-century portraits—by Pisanello or Jan van Eyck , for example—may be considered completed pictorial works in their concentration, execution, and distribution of space.
The clear, delicately delineated representation follows every detail of the surface, striving for realism.
The profile, rich in detail, is preferred; resembling relief, it is akin to the medallion. Next in prominence to the pure profile, the three-quarter profile, with its more spatial effect, came to the fore, to remain for centuries the classic portrait stance.
The close relationship to painting applies to practically all portrait drawings of the 15th century. The choice of the softer medium, the contouring , which for all its exactitude is less severely self-contained, and the more delicate interior drawing with plane elements gives these drawings a livelier, more personal character and accentuates once more their proximity to painting.
In polychromatic chalk technique and pastel, portrait drawing maintained its independence into the 19th century. In pastel painting, the portrait outweighed all other subjects.
In the choice of pose, type, and execution, portrait painting, like other art forms, is influenced by the general stylistic features of an epoch.
Thus, the extreme pictorial attitude of the late Baroque and Rococo was followed by a severer conception during Neoclassicism, which preferred monochrome techniques and cultivated as well the special form of the silhouette , a profile contour drawing with the area filled in in black.
Unmistakably indebted to their 15th-century predecessors, the creators of portrait drawings of the early 19th century aimed once more at the exact rendition of detail and plastic effects gained through the most carefully chosen graphic mediums: More interested in the psychological aspects of portraiture, late 19th- and 20th-century draftsmen preferred the softer crayons that readily follow every artistic impulse.
The seizing of characteristic elements and an adequate plane rendition weighed more heavily with them than realistic detail. As early as the 15th century, landscape drawings, too, attained enough autonomy so that it is hard to distinguish between the finished study for the background of a particular painting and an independent, self-contained sketched landscape.
But it was Dürer who developed landscape as a recollected image and autonomous work of art, in short, as a theme of its own without reference to other works.
His watercolours above all but also the drawings of his two Italian journeys, of the surroundings of Nürnberg , and of the journey to the Netherlands, represent the earliest pure landscape drawings.
Centuries had to pass before such drawings occurred again in this absolute formulation. Landscape elements were also very significant in 16th-century German and Dutch drawings and illustrations.
The figurative representation, still extant in most cases, is formally quite integrated into the romantic forest-and-meadow landscape, particularly in the works of the Danube School — Albrecht Altdorfer and Wolf Huber , for example.
More frequently than in other schools, one finds here carefully executed nature views. In the Netherlands, Pieter Bruegel drew topographical views as well as free landscape compositions, in both cases as autonomous works.
In the 17th century, the nature study and the landscape drawing that grew out of it reached a new high. The landscape drawings of the Accademia degli Incamminati those of Domenichino , for example combined classical and mythological themes with heroic landscapes.
The Frenchman Claude Lorrain , living in Rome, frequently worked under the open sky, creating landscape drawings with a hitherto unattained atmospheric quality.
This type of cultivated and idealized landscape, depicted also by Poussin and other Northerners residing in Rome they were called Dutch Romanists in view of the fact that so many artists from the Netherlands lived in Rome, their drawings of Italy achieving an almost ethereal quality , is in contrast with the unheroic, close-to-nature concept of landscape held primarily by the Netherlanders when depicting the landscape of their native country.
All landscape painters—their landscape paintings a specialty that was strongly represented in the artistically specialized Low Countries—also created independent landscape drawings Jan van Goyen and Jacob van Ruisdael and his uncle and cousin, for example , with Rembrandt again occupying a special position: Landscape drawings of greater artistic freedom, as well as imaginary landscapes, were done most successfully by some French artists, among them Hubert Robert ; pictorially and atmospherically, these themes reached a second flowering in the brush-drawn landscapes of such English artists as Turner and Alexander Cozens , whose influence extends well into the 20th century.
Given their strong interest in delineation, the 18th-century draftsmen of Neoclassicism and, even more, of Romanticism observed nature with topographical accuracy.
Landscape drawings and even more, watercolours, formed an inexhaustible theme in the 19th century. Landscapes formed part of the work of many 20th-century draftsmen, but, for much of the century, the genre as such took second place to general problems of form, in which the subject was treated merely as a starting point.
However, during the last 30 years of the 20th century, a large number of American artists returned to representation, thus reinvesting in the landscape as a subject.
Compared to the main themes of autonomous drawing—portraiture and landscape—all others are of lesser importance. Figure compositions depend greatly on the painting of their time and are often directly connected with it.
There were, to be sure, artists who dealt in their drawings with the themes of monumental painting, such as the 17th-century engraver and etcher Raymond de La Fage; in general, however, the artistic goal of figure composition is the picture, with the drawing representing but a useful aid and a way station.
Genre scenes, especially popular in the 17th-century Low Countries as done by Adriaen Brouwer , Adriaen van Ostade , and Jan Steen , for example and in 18th-century France and England, did attain some independent standing.
Still lifes can also lay claim to being autonomous drawings, especially the representations of flowers, such as those of the Dutch artist Jan van Huysum , which have been popular ever since the 17th century.
Here, again, it is true that a well-designed arrangement transforms an immediate nature study into a pictorial composition. In some of these compositions the similarity to painting is very strong; the pastels of the 19th- and 20th-century artist Odilon Redon , for instance, or the work of the 20th-century German Expressionist Emil Nolde , with its chromatic intensity, transcend altogether the dividing line between drawing and painting.
In still lifes, as in landscapes, autonomous principles of form are more important to modern artists than the factual statement.
Drawings with imaginary and fanciful themes are more independent of external reality. Dream apparitions, metamorphoses , and the entwining of separate levels and regions of reality have been traditional themes.
The late 15th-century phantasmagoric works of Hieronymus Bosch are an early example. There are allegorical peasant scenes by the 16th-century Flemish artist Pieter Bruegel and the carnival etchings of the 17th-century French artist Jacques Callot.
Others whose works illustrate what can be done with drawing outside landscape and portraiture are: Nonrepresentational art , with its reduction of the basic elements of drawing—point, line, plane—to pure form, offered new challenges.
Through renunciation of associative corporeal and spatial relationships, the unfolding of the dimensions of drawing and the structure of the various mediums acquire new significance.
The graphic qualities of the line in the plane as well as the unmarked area had already been emphasized in earlier times—for example, in the grotteschi of Giuseppe Arcimboldo in the 16th century the fanciful or fantastic representations of human and animal forms often combined with each other and interwoven with representations of foliage, flowers, fruit, or the like and in calligraphic exercises such as moresques strongly stylized linear ornament, based on leaves and blossoms —but mostly as printing or engraving models for the most disparate decorative tasks interior decoration, furniture, utensils, jewelry, weapons, and the like.
There is one field in which drawing fulfills a distinct function: In many cases, no execution of these plans was envisaged; since the early Renaissance, such ideal plans have been drawn to symbolize, in execution and accessories, an abstract content.
Despite the often considerable exactitude with which the plans are drawn, the personal statement predominates in the flow of the line.
This personal note clearly identifies the drawings of such artists and architects as Albrecht Altdorfer , Leonardo, Michelangelo, Bernini, Francesco Borromini , and Piranesi.
Also distinct from the ground-plan type of architectural drawing are the art drawings of autonomous character created by such 20th-century architects as Erich Mendelsohn and Le Corbusier.
We welcome suggested improvements to any of our articles. You can make it easier for us to review and, hopefully, publish your contribution by keeping a few points in mind.
Modern-day artists such as Tracey Emin observe the legacy and importance of drawing, engraving and print making techniques in their vast array, passed down through millennia.
The centuries have produced a canon of notable artists and draftsmen, each with their own distinct language of drawing, including:.
The medium is the means by which ink, pigment or color are delivered onto the drawing surface. Most drawing media are either dry e. Watercolor pencils can be used dry like ordinary pencils, then moistened with a wet brush to get various painterly effects.
Very rarely, artists have drawn with usually decoded invisible ink. Metalpoint drawing usually employs either of two metals: Paper comes in a variety of different sizes and qualities, ranging from newspaper grade up to high quality and relatively expensive paper sold as individual sheets.
Smooth paper is good for rendering fine detail, but a more "toothy" paper holds the drawing material better. Thus a coarser material is useful for producing deeper contrast.
Newsprint and typing paper may be useful for practice and rough sketches. Tracing paper is used to experiment over a half-finished drawing, and to transfer a design from one sheet to another.
Cartridge paper is the basic type of drawing paper sold in pads. Bristol board and even heavier acid-free boards, frequently with smooth finishes, are used for drawing fine detail and do not distort when wet media ink, washes are applied.
Vellum is extremely smooth and suitable for very fine detail. Coldpressed watercolor paper may be favored for ink drawing due to its texture.
Acid-free, archival quality paper keeps its color and texture far longer than wood pulp based paper such as newsprint , which turns yellow and becomes brittle much sooner.
The basic tools are a drawing board or table, pencil sharpener and eraser , and for ink drawing, blotting paper. Other tools used are circle compass , ruler , and set square.
Fixative is used to prevent pencil and crayon marks from smudging. Drafting tape is used to secure paper to drawing surface, and also to mask an area to keep it free of accidental marks, such as sprayed or spattered materials and washes.
An easel or slanted table is used to keep the drawing surface in a suitable position, which is generally more horizontal than the position used in painting.
Almost all draftsmen use their hands and fingers to apply the media, with the exception of some handicapped individuals who draw with their mouth or feet.
Prior to working on an image, the artist typically explores how various media work. They may try different drawing implements on practice sheets to determine value and texture, and how to apply the implement to produce various effects.
The artist's choice of drawing strokes affects the appearance of the image. Pen and ink drawings often use hatching — groups of parallel lines.
Broken hatching, or lines with intermittent breaks, form lighter tones — and controlling the density of the breaks achieves a gradation of tone.
Stippling uses dots to produce tone, texture and shade. Different textures can be achieved depending on the method used to build tone.
Drawings in dry media often use similar techniques, though pencils and drawing sticks can achieve continuous variations in tone.
Typically a drawing is filled in based on which hand the artist favors. A right-handed artist draws from left to right to avoid smearing the image.
Erasers can remove unwanted lines, lighten tones, and clean up stray marks. In a sketch or outline drawing, lines drawn often follow the contour of the subject, creating depth by looking like shadows cast from a light in the artist's position.
Sometimes the artist leaves a section of the image untouched while filling in the remainder. The shape of the area to preserve can be painted with masking fluid or cut out of a frisket and applied to the drawing surface, protecting the surface from stray marks until the mask is removed.
Another method to preserve a section of the image is to apply a spray-on fixative to the surface. This holds loose material more firmly to the sheet and prevents it from smearing.
However the fixative spray typically uses chemicals that can harm the respiratory system, so it should be employed in a well-ventilated area such as outdoors.
Another technique is subtractive drawing in which the drawing surface is covered with graphite or charcoal and then erased to make the image.
Shading is the technique of varying the tonal values on the paper to represent the shade of the material as well as the placement of the shadows.
Careful attention to reflected light, shadows and highlights can result in a very realistic rendition of the image. Blending uses an implement to soften or spread the original drawing strokes.
Blending is most easily done with a medium that does not immediately fix itself, such as graphite, chalk, or charcoal, although freshly applied ink can be smudged, wet or dry, for some effects.
For shading and blending, the artist can use a blending stump , tissue , a kneaded eraser , a fingertip, or any combination of them.
A piece of chamois is useful for creating smooth textures, and for removing material to lighten the tone. Continuous tone can be achieved with graphite on a smooth surface without blending, but the technique is laborious, involving small circular or oval strokes with a somewhat blunt point.
Shading techniques that also introduce texture to the drawing include hatching and stippling. A number of other methods produce texture.
In addition to the choice of paper, drawing material and technique affect texture. Texture can be made to appear more realistic when it is drawn next to a contrasting texture; a coarse texture is more obvious when placed next to a smoothly blended area.
A similar effect can be achieved by drawing different tones close together. A light edge next to a dark background stands out to the eye, and almost appears to float above the surface.
Measuring the dimensions of a subject while blocking in the drawing is an important step in producing a realistic rendition of the subject.
Tools such as a compass can be used to measure the angles of different sides. These angles can be reproduced on the drawing surface and then rechecked to make sure they are accurate.
Another form of measurement is to compare the relative sizes of different parts of the subject with each other. A finger placed at a point along the drawing implement can be used to compare that dimension with other parts of the image.
A ruler can be used both as a straightedge and a device to compute proportions. When attempting to draw a complicated shape such as a human figure, it is helpful at first to represent the form with a set of primitive volumes.Additional techniques came to the fore in the 18th century, with the pen sketch providing the scaffold for the drawing martingale method was carried out in a pictorial style.

Pressed into sticks or bars, it was sold under the name of Chinese ink or India ink.
