I have trouble with them because I have trouble drawing lighter with them. I’m good at shading with them but the lines they make aren’t very clean. They’re also pretty soft pencils, and it’s hard to erase the lines and marks they make. Something about them makes it harder to draw lightly, or maybe I’m not doing something right, but they just don’t seem the most ideal or best for me
The main thing is I’m trying to make my dad a drawing for his birthday coming up of our old dog who he loved. Because our old dog meant so much to my dad I wanted to make a drawing for him of. I want it to be perfect, and don’t want to mess it up, and I really hope he’ll enjoy it, because I wanted to do something special as a gift.
no offense but that doesnt sound like the pencil's fault
there are different lead hardness tho. softer lead will be darker. standard is hb. but if its an actual problem with how you use pencils, which is what it sounds like, then youre probably gonna tear a hole in the paper with the hard lead...
