The pen­cil with ap­peal

ImagineFX - - In Depth Figure Drawing -

Hav­ing found my ba­sic shapes and pro­por­tions I be­gin to draw more solid lines. Here I’m us­ing a char­coal pen­cil be­cause it’s the same ma­te­rial as the wil­low char­coal, just more dense. If I were to use a graphite pen­cil it would be too shiny and grey. This is a ‘peel-off’ pen­cil that gen­er­ally doesn’t need sharp­en­ing if you work big. The way it works is, you peel the outer pa­per layer up­ward to re­veal more point. Very handy and clean to use.
