Happy new year everybody! Time to mix up things a little in the new year: I found a process for expressive lines that I really like. Here’s how it works: Try drawing with a really soft pencil (3B – 6B) on tracing paper. And if you want to loosen it up some more, hold the pencil with your index finger and thumb, while letting it come out between your ring finger and pinky. It feels a bit weird at first, but the pencil is at a very flat angle, thus producing very wide lines. You also can’t control it as much as you could with a normal grip, but that’s the fun part of it.
