Utensils needed for drawing ?

So i started drawing like 3 months ago and i'm lovin' it, I've drawn a couple of stuff, including a portrait of Eminem : , I know it's really not that great but i don't have a good background about drawing and the stuff needed, So a pencil is all i used (HB-2). So i'd like to know what are some utensils needed for drawing portraits, Thanks for your time.

    The coolest part about drawing is you can use anything. With art you can from pencils and sketching to markers and rendering to painting and digital design!

    If you're just starting out and getting the hang of drawing I would recommend just sticking with an HB2 pencil right now. You can get the multi-pack of pencils that range anywhere from 7h to 7b (hard will be a lighter line all the way up through 7b ((or bold)) which will be a darker line) but until you've really gotten the hang of shading that may look a little rough. I would also recommend Strathmore Series paper, it comes in a ton of sizes including notebook sized sketchbooks so it's easy to take with you. Just make sure you get the pad for sketching and not watercolor or anything. A kneaded eraser and a WHITE RUBBER eraser, pink pearl erasers are the devil, they will shred your drawings. Other than that make sure you just have a good sharpener and some motivation!

    Hope it goes well for ya! We can always use more artists out there

    it honestly depends on the artist. if you want to stick with pencil look into one of those multi artist pencil pack things that has all the H to the B pencils. if you want to try another medium there are charcoals, pastels, oil pastels, oil paints, water colour paints, acrylic paints, pencil crayons and water colour pencils. really the world is your oyster when it comes to shading in traditional art.
