Beginner Face Sketching Tutorial with Tri-Tone pencils

Hi friends! Today we are going to draw a face. This tutorial is aimed at beginners. You can do this! Feel free to use a regular pencil if you are new to drawing faces, you can do all of the sketching and shading with that if you like!


I drew this face while I was watching TV, just doodleing in my sketchbook with Tri-tone colored pencils because I had bought them last year but had never really liked them. I think they might be fun to take on vacation so I was giving them a little test drive. Turns out  I really enjoyed them this time around! It just goes to show you that you should give unloved supplies another chance from time to time! I kept this tutorial real time (I had live streamed it but there was an audio issue so I re-recorded the bad audio) because I think beginners might like the extra “how and why’s” of this sketch. I hope you enjoy it!

I have the Tri-Tone set of 12 colors but I think the set of 24 would be more useful. Products are linked to Blitsy where they are on sale. These are affiliate links so I earn a small commission if you purchase at no additional cost to you and I thank you for your support! Below is a photo of the tri-tone pencils so you can see the variation of colors in the lead.


They are really kinda neat and I want to try some landscape sketching with them! Would you try these pencils, let me know in the comments below and til next time happy crafting!
