    Figure Drawing Materials.

    What materials do you guys suggest for figure drawing. (type of charcoal, graphite). Looking for something fast and clean that can also get good variation in line thickness? What do you guys use? thanks,
    Ed

    Actually, you're on the right track there. one of my favorite ways to draw figures in class was by dipping a twig in ink and drawing with that. you get a messy, scratchy, wonderfully inconsistent line- it's really liberating.

    finger painting, too, is completely under rated.
