In summary, when starting a sketch, it is important to have a clear idea of the subject, composition, and style. Materials such as pencils, charcoal, ink pens, and markers can be used for sketching, and a good quality paper or sketchbook is essential. Using a reference image can be helpful for accuracy, but it is also important to use your own creativity. To create depth and dimension, techniques such as shading, perspective, and layering can be used. Improving sketching skills requires practice, studying other artists, and experimenting with different styles and materials.

Let ABCD be a parallelogram with acute angle at A. Let E be the foot of the perpendicular from C to the
line AB and let F be the foot of the perpendicular from C to the line AD.

## 1. How do I start drawing a sketch?

The first step is to gather all necessary materials such as paper, pencils, erasers, and any other tools you may need. Then, start with a light sketch of the basic shapes and outlines before adding details.

## 2. How do I improve my drawing skills?

Practice is key to improving your drawing skills. Set aside time each day to draw and experiment with different techniques. You can also take classes or watch tutorials to learn new skills and techniques.

## 3. How should I choose the right proportions for my sketch?

When drawing from observation, it's important to compare the relative sizes and proportions of objects to one another. You can also use tools such as a grid or ruler to help with accuracy.

## 4. How do I add shading and depth to my sketch?

Shading can be achieved by varying the pressure and direction of your pencil strokes. Start with a light layer of shading and gradually build up to create depth and dimension. You can also use different types of pencils or blending tools for different effects.

## 5. How do I know when my sketch is finished?

Knowing when to stop is a personal decision, but a good rule of thumb is to step back and assess your drawing from a distance. If it looks complete and balanced, then it may be finished. You can always come back to it later and make adjustments if needed.
