Messing about with different pencils while working on the Inktober project. I really prefer wood pencils (particularly Staedtler 5H) but the constant sharpening is a real pain. For this project, since I’m going to be doing a ton of sketching, I’m switching to a Pentel mechanical with hard lead. It will take some getting used to.
Scratch that. Instead I found my drafting pencil that I have drawing leads for. I still have to sharpen that, but the tips last longer between sharpening than wood pencils.
