i use mechanical pencil, but wooden pencil is OK

(i prefer mechanical one to wooden one because i don't have to sharpen it.)

I feel the same way Trio. I love the control wooden pencils give you but it gets annoying having to sharpen them over and over again.

Prefer to use anything with a hard led...mostly mechanical for me. .3mm or .5mm will do. --Prefer the former though.

I'm hoping to get some colored copic pencils to draw with soon though. :D Can't waittttt.

I don't do Traditional art anymore so all I ever use is a mechanical pencil xwx;
If I resort to sketches, I would use my old worn out ones from China :'D

im using just a normal pencil .. ordinary whatever I can find, for example the Monggol Pencil. By the way I usually use a 2 lead Monggol Pencil and another 1 lead.. sometimes mechanical

I use a normal pencil (like, any pencil I can get my hands on) for sketching, or a mechanical 0.7 one. 0.5 for finer details and the such.
However, when shading, I prefer Derwent Watercolour, whether I give it a water wash later or not. Derwent Inktense Black is pretty awesome too, better for blocking in dark shapes than Watercolour.

I usually use any kind of pencil I have at hand... But I prefer H lead pencils or mechanical pencils with HB lead.

I used to use .5 mechanicle but I've recently been swayed to using a H pencil for sketching and a series of pencils up to 6b for shading

depends on how good i want my drawing to be :P
if i'm just doodling or not being seriously serious, i will just use a HB for everything.

if i'm being kind of serious, i use a 3B for everything

if i am super serious i will sketch in HB, go over the lines in 3B, shade in 2-4B and light shading with 3-5H (the higher the better for me)

I usually would use mechanical pencils. But recently I've been using the HB, 6B and 2H pencils that came with the Faber-Castell Sketching kit my sister got me for Christmas, they're pretty good.

with more experience behind me i sketch in 2H, darken up in HB, and finish off in 2B with the heavier lines and shadows. if i need a really dark shadow then 3B (and higher) is fine.

I use many type of pencils ranging from 2h, f, hb, 2b, 4b, 5b, 6b depending on what i feel like using for the day. But i am really fond of drawing with mechanical pencil of whatever type either a 0.5mm or 0.7mm when i feel like im in the zone (drawing confidence feeling).

I use a mechanical pencil with 0.5 lead for sketching. For shading, I use 2B, 4B, and 8B wooden pencils. (I can't remember the brand lol) :3

I use a variety of cheap mechanical pencils. Normally they are 0.7. I had some of the Sakura 0.5 pencils and they where really nice but both of mine got jammed and stopped working in just a month or two of use.

I use H-kun for under sketches :3 She's smooth and kind to the paper, never sharpen her much either :sheep: I like using some 4B for rough draft, even a graphite 8B from time to time.
