Pencil Sketch - The Flamingo Bird

Pencil sketch is always one of my favourite drawing. Its easy and you will need to be very careful when u use the different pencils and the different stones of those pencil

Here I'll tell you the different pencils and the shades to which it need to be used.
Sketch using pencil looks attractive because of the use of light and dark shades.

Here is different pencil and different tones we can use using the particular pencil.
1. 2H pencil - This is used for "very light tone"
2. HB pencil - This is used for "light tone"
3. 2B pencil - This is used for "middle tone"
4. 4B pencil - This is used for "dark tone"
5. 6B pencil - This is used for "very dark tone"

You need to be careful about the short strokes, long strokes, vertical strokes etc.. In pencil sketching detailing is very important.

You need to study the sketch which you are going to make like for animals you need to be careful about the head study, shading of the side parts of any animal, hand hair's shadings and all.
In case of landscape the trees, birds the roots etc.

Here is the one I made. The beautiful Flamingo Bird.

Quilling is not expensive and done with easily available and affordable equipments.

1. Paper Strips. (Quilling paper strips are easily available)
2. Glue
3. Quilling Needle

How to make it:

1. Take required length of the quilling strips and put one end of the strip into the quilling needle sloth.

2. Then you need to wind the paper to make it a coil shape. If you need a tight coil apply glue to the other end of the paper or if you need a loose coil remove the paper from the tool and allow it to loosen before glueing the end.

3. Squeeze the coil to the required shape with the help of your finger.

4. Place the shape on the card as per your design and in the same way repeat the process and make different shapes and designs out of these simple paper strips.

This is the quilling needle used for making the coil.
