Perhaps we’re biased, but there’s a unique beauty to drawing pencils that isn’t matched in your everyday writing pencils. Usually painted in pleasing colors and embossed with their name and grade, they cut a striking figure in your art set. Of course, you can’t judge a drawing pencil (solely) by its beauty. Graphite pencils come in a variety of grades: B pencils have more graphite in them, so they make dark and soft marks, while H pencils have more clay in them which provides harder and more precise marks. A good drawing set will include a range of grades that transition smoothly from one into the next. Ahead, find top notch options to get your sketching and drafting off to a good start.
