How to Draw a Heart in Pencil – Blending Technique

I thought I would continue the pencil drawing theme and draw a heart in pencil, but this time I’m taking it slowly as my Patreon Patron, Jenny, says she has difficulty drawing even simple curves for a heart. Most of the time I’m just drawing in a pretty scribbly, loose, relaxed sort of way and pretty quickly too – I don’t want my audience to get bored! But the secret to getting those curves really smooth is to take your time, draw very gently so its easy to erase any mistakes along the way!
