In a drawing (of a man or a dog for example), how do you draw light tones "on top" of dark tones without smudging/messing up the light tones?


With #2 pencils and other pencils?

    The trick is to see the tones first, and only record what you see, or use an eraser. You can also use kneadable erasers and shape them to a point, or an eraser shield to protect an area. A good tip would be to first squint, to blur what you intend to draw and see where the tones are, don't look at the objects, just what's darkest and what's lightest.
