Sometimes we find ourselves in a creative rut, one that is not exactly easy to get out of and one that we have no idea how to get past.

Different Styles, Same Medium

When you choose to work with a single kind of medium, you’re undoubtedly going to be faced with a few pros and cons—the primary pro being less pressure and more control on the part of you, the artist; and the primary con being having to work around the limitations of your chosen medium (this is especially true when you try to go for realistic representations). Which is why the black and white sketches you see here are truly special.

Unlike our collection of Funny Drawings, there is certainly nothing to laugh or scoff at in this collection of beautiful black and white drawings. You can also clearly see the range of art styles, technique, execution, and chosen subject matter in these images.

  • Realistic representation

Note the extent of shading and the control the artists exhibit in “Black and White Drawing of Eyes” to mimic light and provide depth and dimension to the illustrations.

  • Bold vs. Fine, Heavy-handed vs. Light-handed

Go with a light hand to give off a softer, more subtle appearance like in “Flowers Black and White Drawing” and a heavy hand to make certain objects seem more opaque and dark like the pine trees in “Black and White Landscape Drawing.”

  • Distortion and symbolism

Sketching certain objects with more unconventional shapes and lines presents viewers a different perspective, as shown in “Black and White Drawing of Nature.”
