In this video from Castle Arts we show you how to compose a drawing using the 70/30 rule, in this example an archer. To draw and shade the archer we use the b, 2B and 4B blue-barrelled pencils, the paper blender, kneadable eraser and sharpening block all contained in the 40 Piece Drawing Set. You can also download an A4 PDF tutorial which guides you through the techniques used in the video. The PDF also includes a pencil sketch outline of the archer so you can print out and practice as many times as you like. Once you've completed your illustration, upload to Instagram using the hashtag #castlearts, we would love to see and share your artwork. Enjoy!
