    well I think the easiest pencils to use range from hb to 8b. A cheapass ballpoint bic pen can make pretty nice images too, but I usually prefer a G2 black gel pen. Those are nice pens.

    How about switching back and forth, you don't have to stick to one.

    How about just using all art tools and not getting married to a HB pencil? Besides, you are a free spirit, you would just cheat on that pencil anyway. Don't get tied down, use them all.

    yes, experiment.

    If you wanna get darker in pencil, use softer graes like 6b or 8b. Having a bunch of different grades in pencil is like changing gears in a car.

    Pencils, pens, markers, charcoals, paints, blood....(yes blood)....I agree with Blue....use em all.


    If you're looking for something just to sketch with....well....use em all and see what suits you best (technique, size of sketchbook, cost, ease of use and so on). Everyone is different in pereference.

    Don't forget to show us your stuff.

    experiment with any mediums you can and you will find that you like certain brands, mediums, style better.

    so try everything.

    i hear Marko Djurdjevic's sweat possesses magical powers, sold in darkened alleys and used best as a thinning medium. oh, and about his other bodily fluids...
