What type of pencils do you use for your figure drawings?
In the beginning of AAI classes, I strictly used (6B+4B) Charcoal pencils. After I ran out, I started using Ebony and 6B Pencils. I’m all out of Ebony so I’m using 6B and 4B’s and I also found a black Conte pencil on the floor so I’ve been using that too.
Occasionally I use a ballpoint pen (like a bic), my Faber Castell pens (brush or point) and sharpies.
I also use a plain ole mechanical pencil (0.5mm) and a few 2B and HB pencils.
Since I’m on a strict budget I use all the pencils down to the nib and even when it is a nib I use that nib until it is dust.
