There's really not anything I can say that hasn't probably been said...but you are so talented and capture expression so well. I get hypnotized looking at your pieces. I just started drawing about 3 1/2 months ago. I've painted for awhile but have never tried drawing at all before. I have finished about 11 pieces since I started, and what can I say, other than I feel like I'm in the middle of a love affair right now. lol! It has definitely awaken a passion in me, for sure. I read the info packed paragraph you wrote to 'cutesky' and appreciate your generosity in sharing all the info. I think I'm doing okay, but tend to be a bit heavy handed and inpatient, I think, but I sure am having fun! Anyway...many blessing to you!!! :oeace: :heart:

Your welcome, i use utrecht graphite pencils, 2h up to 8b, i smudge with tissues, i have not tried graphite powders yet or drawn with charcoal, i want to try it though!

hmmm ok, try mars lumograph by staedtler in germany. you'll most likely have to buy them on eBay as most art stores won't stock them for some reason, and if they do they charge like $3 for one pencil.......... I use only HB, 6B & 8B leads...........HB blends so easily that it goes great over the top of 6B to give a softer smoother blend. 8B is a black lead (black as charcoal but not ass messy)
For blending I use those cotton wool makeup removal pads that you girls use......... they are cheap & come in packs of 100 so are fantastic, try these & you will give the tissues the arse =D
then you need to get yourself an eraser stik (spelt correctly) you can find them on eBay.
these erasers cut through the graphite even black lead but struggle with with powders. for powders use blue tack for picking out details...........
