I have tried almost every type of drawing supplies available over the past years. I have found the supplies that I use are consistent and work well for my style of artwork.
I have been asked many times “What art supplies for realistic pet drawings do I use?”
In this article I will share with you the supplies I use for my drawings.
Supplies for Realistic Pet Drawings
Graphite drawing artists are lucky that our supplies are relatively inexpensive. To try different brands will not break your bank. This makes it easy for us to use the best supplies for our craft.
One tip I would like to share with you is to only purchase one item if you are just going to try it. A great way to decide what you will be happiest with is to compare it with other brands on the same drawing.
By drawing with different brands on the same project you will be able to get a good feel of what will work best for you.
You will not be wasting any money trying to find the best supplies for your art style. Everyone uses scrap paper and notes can be written with pencils.
I am not suggesting that the supplies that I use will be the best for you. If you are in looking to try different brands and are interested in what I use here is a list for you.
Supplies for realistic pet drawings found in my studio:
Pentel GraphGear 500 Automatic Drafting Pencil 0.3 and 0.5
Blick Studio Drawing Pencils
Bristol board and Drawing Pads:
I do have a variety of blending tools. I do not use them on a regular basis, but I have them if they are needed for a specific technique or texture.
These are the most used art supplies that I use on a regular basis for my drawings. I do like to try different supplies. If I do try something different and I start to keep a specific brand in my studio I will add it to this list for you.
