Re: Drawing tools (was: Re: How did you become "Paleo Artist?")
Apologies to James and Jordan, but I feel bound to point out that
anything beyond HB (2H 3H 4H etc.) is too hard. I only use 2B and softer
In fact, the softer your pencil is, the better. They are harder to draw
with, but the effect is worth it. I would be very surprised to hear if
any professional artists or illustrators use Hx pencils at all.

I use a number of different pencils. Lately my repertoire has
consisted of mostly 4H, H, and 3B, which gives me a good range of
shades. For coloured work, I use Prismacolors (and nothin' but!).
Which reminds me... does anyone know of any sort of on-line "how to's"
or tutorials for wildlife illustration? I'm just looking for any sort
of neat tricks-of-the-trade that I might not yet know about. Please
