Pencil Pole - Wood or Mechanical?


Recommended Posts

For me it depends on what I am doing the drawing for. If I am doing a tattoo design I use 2 different mechanical pencils. One is a .9 mm that I have loaded with red soft lead, and the second is a normal .9 mechanical pencil. I use the red to do my sketch then the normal to do my final line drawing. When I copy it the red doesn't print. However if I am doing an fully rendered graphite drawing I use normal pencils. For me it is easier to get smooth gradients with the bigger leads and it is also a little easier to tailor the point of the lead to get it to do what I need it to do.
