Pencils Guide by millibayley Pencils Guide by millibayley
A pencil/pen/charcoal guide I whipped up. A quick refer-to guide for all your pencil/pen/charcoal needs!

NOTE: Gel pens are best used as 'spotting' and for effects as getting them to streak on straight-up pencil is quite difficult. I suggest using an opaque Galaxy White marker instead as it produces the same results, but is much easier to use.

The whites have borders around them since they were washed out in the scanning process. Done in a moleskine, but these pencil effects can apply basically anywhere.

If you have questions, feel free to ask. I hope it helps!

This has confirmed suspicions that I've had for years-- white colored pencils are almost entirely useless.

Hahaha~ Actually, white coloured pencils are what I use much of the time~ They're excellent for blending and for giving a 'smeared' and 'oily' look to certain things. It's just how you utilise them methinks 8D
