Do you have a passion for drawing and art? Do you create it? Or do you appreciate it? If your answer is yes to any of these, then you are our kind of people!
We here at Pencil Art Blog like to promote artists and their works. We also like to comment on the artworks of others. Through this blog we want to be able to share our opinions about the art we see and read about.
As a blog that is dedicated to pencil drawings, we want to focus on new works and artists as well as bring back some old ones for a second look. Some may say that pencil drawing is a dying art form, but it is not yet dead. There are still artists producing beautiful drawings with pencils. This is why we want to make sure they get seen.
And what better way than through social media? We use the most popular social-media platforms, Twitter and Facebook, with which many of us are already familiar. We hope by using these social platforms that more people get exposed to our posts and more artists get their fair chance at getting recognized for their work through our blog.
We hope everyone enjoys this blog as much as we enjoy posting on it!
Wow! Those are so nice and amazing. I love pencil drawings and do them all the time. I think these artists are very talented and skilled. I wish I could draw like them. It’s a nice thing to share with everyone on this blog.
He has been drawing with pencils since his early childhood and he is a self-taught artist. His drawings are very realistic, because he has an incredible gift for observation. He can draw any object or person exactly as it is in reality, using only a few lines. He makes flawless pencil drawings of people, animals and landscapes – and even some of his drawings look like photos!
Tran Cao Son has been drawing realistic pencil portraits since 2010. The artist’s portraits are extremely detailed, they look like photos. Some of his works look so much like real people that it is hard to believe that they were drawn with pencils without the help of a computer program. Tran Cao Son draws mostly on black paper, using only seven or eight different colors to create perfect skin tones and natural shading.
¨I want my drawings to be similar to photographs, so I use a limited palette of seven or eight pencils. But I don’t use any computer programs for my drawings. I just use sketches and pictures for inspiration.” said the artist.
Tran Cao Son works only with graphite pencils of HB, B and 2B hardness, but he doesn’t sharpen them too much in order to get softer lead for more natural shading effects. The result
As a visual artist myself I know how time consuming and frustrating it can be to find the perfect material for your projects.

Every year, I make it a goal to do more art. One of my favorite things to draw are portraits and I really enjoy trying to capture the personality in my subject. This year, rather than doing a traditional portrait session, I decided that I would like to do a “twinsie” set of portraits where I could draw myself with my boyfriend and brother at once.
Twinsie sessions are more challenging but fun because you want your subjects to be looking at each other, smiling, laughing. Each person needs to feature in the image. But it’s tricky getting everyone looking at the camera! It’s also a great opportunity for you as an artist because you get to work on drawing faces in different positions and expressions.
I used Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens for these drawings but anything with a fine tip will do! If you would like me to draw you as well, just drop me an email!
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with drawing. I would spend hours in the library poring over art books and copying works by Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Van Gogh and Picasso. In high school I took an art class where we learned how to paint with oils. The teacher taught us how to use the color wheel and simplify shapes using basic geometric forms like cylinders, spheres, cones and cubes. We also learned about shading, tints and hues. After years of practice, my drawings started to look professional.
I am passionate about art and have always wanted to make a career out of it. After college I moved to San Francisco and attended the Academy of Art University for 2 years but eventually dropped out due to financial reasons. It was during this time that I started drawing on pencils since most of my artwork was destroyed in a fire at my house. It has been about 3 years since then and I continue to draw on pencils because it’s cheaper than buying canvases and paints on a regular basis plus it’s also very convenient when you’re on the go.
My biggest influences are Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti but there are many modern artists who
