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.

I like how he's trying to get on the quote in signature game, except he can't even figure out how to get that done right.

Moron.

For the record, I generally use wooden pencils. Maybe @Paulywhore would like to borrow one to shove straight up his ass.

However, I use a mixture of stuff. I'm a big fan of holders for loose work and I refine with WOOD. HARD STIFF WOOD.

Crap, not nearly as funny as I thought it was...just like someone else we know.

Oh, I get it, he meant "poll." This is why I never read these posts. Spell check is common courtesy, no?

    • cool tattoo. no need to cover it up... it'll fit right in with a traditional sleeve no matter which way it's facing. don't overthink it! i'd say the "rules" are that tattoos should face forward if they're on the side and face inward if they're on the front or back. i did a quick search of Bert Krak's IG for some examples. The peacocks on the back of the calves both face inwards. But on the client with the eagle backpiece, you can see a skull facing in and a hannya facing out... and no one will say that one's right or wrong. it's not even consistent and it doesn't matter! 😃 Just keep getting tattooed and it'll be all good!
    • that's correct orientation IMO
    • should be facing into the center of the body, like you have it, right?
