Don’t look at me.

Picked up some graphite the other day. It has been forever since I’ve used non-mechanical pencils.

I don’t think there’s any question that using sharpened graphite sticks is better if your final work is graphite (like the difference between tech pens and brush), but I only really use pencil to sketch in prep for inks and/or watercolor, so using mechanical pencils made more sense/is cleaner. Graphite is messy, and I have a love/hate thing going with messy. I dunno.

Proportions are totally off in the second one, but I like how these turned out for the most part.

It doesn’t look anything like the reference, but I kind of like how this turned out anyway?

Go figure that the one time I think a portrait actually looks like David Tennant, I wasn’t freakin’ trying to paint David Tennant. 8| I need to stop elongating faces, ugh.
