  • Pencils
  • Paper
  • Eraser


  • As in the previous section – you want to keep it quite focused and avoid the urge to move around the whole drawing as this can be distracting.
  • You also want to continue to look for sharp and softer edges.
  • For example – the fire escape needs to be a lot more contrasty and sharper than the soft shadow on the wall behind. This will help create the impression that the escape is sitting in front of the wall in space.
