Tried out the Prismacolor Premier graphite pencils on stream.

Final verdict? I am going back to my “normal” pencils. I will just have to take trips to Tokyo now and then to get new ones lol. (don’t worry, Tokyo is just a hop over in the eastern direction from me. A weekend trip, even)

These are really scratchy on the paper, and the leads aren’t centered in the casing. They sharpen funny… I had to use a razor knife to get them properly sharpened. This is the first time I have ever had to do that.

But anyway. Here is the result of today’s work! HUGE thanks to Dirk Richter for the reference photo!

Since I was really displeased with the new pencils, I did a bit of touchup work with my normal pencils. As you can see, it really shows in the bottom portion of the hair. That is where I started to get seriously frustrated, and it is very noticeable. Lesson learned? You betcha.

Be sure to check out my Twitch Stream! I broadcast 3 days a week. The official schedule is posted on the Twitch page under the video block. I hope to see some familiar names with the next live broadcast!
