Mechanical Pencil Works in Progress

More pencils I have been working on. Now using the 005 HB mechanical pencil with a Staedtler 6B for extra dark bits (pupils, nostrils and a few other spots). They needed names, so they are Gump & Rosie.

Sometimes I get to a certain point and set it aside. This last one has been at this stage for a couple weeks and it’s not done but I haven’t decided what else to do with it. I think a background but I fear all the inevitable smudging.

    I like your new style…..looks like you can get alot more details then copics. …and B&W also sharpens the details even more. Look forward to seeing them finished!

    I’m back! I’m back! (Or at least I think I am?) You have been busy in black and white – wow. SO much depth. Their eyes are so alive. And their noses so… intriguing! Does that make me officially weird? I am doing a nose study on your creatures!:-)
