My personal favorites to draw with are the Staedtler brand pencils. I have the Art. no. 100 G12 kit on this page: http://www.staedtler.com/Mars_Lumograph_eng.Staedtler?ActiveID=2213

I find that they almost never break (e.g. when you sharpen and a piece of graphite slips out) or have impurities which gives you that harsh feel as you draw. They cost more, but I personally think it's worth it. The Reeves brand has been ok for me too; less expensive and still a good feel; I like their woodless all graphite pencils.

Same here, I use any kind of pencil i grab my hands on, though i prefer wooden pencils. But i use mechanical pencils for colouring though.

I prefer to draw with my own pen (a 0.3 mm pencil);

Zebra M-301 .5 mechanical pencil and my Wacom Bamboo Fun digital pen.

I love these. I recently just bought their Drafix pencil and i'm digging it quite a bit. When i'm sketching more realism and I need detailed shading, I bust out my Faber Castell pencil set.

i like to use any light pencil for the basic outline, i don't know the names of pencils but i like ones that if you puch downt hard they mark the paper, not that i do that on purpose.

then i ink my drawings, or go over with a dark soft pencil

I am still using a normal pencil, not mechanical one, for some reason.
