Tomorrow I start assisting on a gig, so I wanted to try something out before I get swamped. I really like the Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. But they don’t really phase out very well. But the red (c’mon, it’s really more orange than anything) Mitsubishi 2mm lead shifts out entirely. So I used that as my base, and I like the Pthalo Blue Polychromos pencil. It didn’t make the most sense since it’s still pretty light. But it worked. I just wanted to get some organic lines, and not really want to worry about smearing.
