Stunning Pencil Drawing Artwork Collection

I was always wondering why we still see black and white artwork and photography in the age of millions of colors and HD technologies. I tried to answer this question based on my love to black and white photography and apply the answer to any black and white art. The black and white artwork takes you beyond the shapes and colors to give you dramatic effect using shadows even more than lines.

Pencil drawing is one of the oldest forms of art that is using different type of pencil that varies in hardness and softness from H9 to B9. The “H” represents the hardness and “B” represents the blackness or the darkness. H9 pens are themost hardest pencils and B9 are themost darkness pencils. HB is in the middle level. However, the full range on pencils is H9, H8, H7, H6, H5, H4, H3, H2, H, HB, B, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, B8.

Drawing with pencil implement many methods to create different effect and styles. For example, you can choose either to draw with shades or lines or both. Here I would like to share with you some really creative pencil drawings by different artists, each of these artists has his or her own style and way to draw with pencils. So, I hope you like it and comment with you best drawings.
