    One thing that it doesn't mention is using pencil extenders for shorties. I have a three-pack of metal ones, and they work great!

    More found stuff.

    For those who like to draw primates or want to paint them.

    I'll use this thread to post things I trip over, just to prevent multiple threads (though if the female faces thread I made could merge with this one that would be cool) link-> http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=187321

    Who would have thought Sears could carry something besides ugly clothing. (Just for the record, I cried when Alexander McQueen died and love fashion. I understand the purpose Sears serves; I just find their clothing unattractive. Before anybody gets offended.) I want one, too!

    Getting that needle-point is so hard though I have the muscle mass of a fetus (maybe even a zygote) so sharpening is hard

    Thanks for the links! Please post more!

    Drawing Equipment & articles pertaining to pencil sharpening

    General's Jumbo Layout Graphite Stick and Holder

    Since I've better control over graphite/lead, drawing big with this seemed the wisest.

    Drawing Equipment & articles pertaining to pencil sharpening

    I have one of these. I love the thing. I got, originally, because I also bought some woodless pencils, so I figured I would need something to hold on to them once they got short enough. I really like them.

    Honestly, I'm not a fan of any chisel point pencil. I have one I use when I'm wood working. But, I cannot see myself using it to draw with. I don't like the thing to begin with. LOL

    That sear chisel is GREAT! If you use it to draw eyebrows it's perfect!

    Don't knock it until you find a use for it.

    Thanks for sharing but I want to point out that a descriptive title would make this thread (and all internet forum threads) a hell of a lot more useful for members. I often skip threads that don't sound interesting and I probably would have skipped over this. I clicked in on a whim and found the article interesting. Just something to think about.
