I like to use mechanical pencils for sketching, but when the drawing becomes more serious I use my set of soft and hard pencils. From watching youtubers I came across the technique of using black colored pencils to get really deep dark tones, so I've done that a couple times as well. Mainly on this piece in the black areas or linework...

Neat! Thanks for sharing. That technique they talk about is it like crosshatching until its solid or is it the circular motion method?

I remember at one point hearing about the circular method, so probably that one.

I use mechanical pencils for drawing. They are super nice and sharp at all times.

I like using them for fine detail as well. Like the eyes or lashes.
