For now those pencils are my favorites as well until I find something better (but perhaps not ), I'm still thinking about doing one with conté pencils in the future because they can give such an sharp effect. But I just love how steady the steadler pencils are and give even smoother shadings and are so easy to blend.
Ok thanks, I've noted that down. I'll look around if I can find them nearby. Otherwise maybe I'm going to try to find them online, that is also quite close. I don't like to wait for new materials. Thanks for you tip .
You never ceases to amaze me! Out of envy I might shout out – "Man, go buy a camera!" , but then I realize that a century ago you would have been drawing the portraits of kings and queens at their own request. God bless you and your talent.
