    Oh....AMAZING! :O What tools you use to make the detail look like it's not pencil work?! 'Cause this is HAMAZING!

      Well, I used a blending stump I think for some of the skin tone. I drew this one last year, some time, so I think that's what I used, if I recall correctly. I know that Bristol board has a smoother surface to cartridge paper, and have noticed that a lot of people who draw portraits tend to use it so I don't know whether it would be easier to achieve smooth skin tone using that instead of cartridge paper. I bought a pad of it, but I've yet to use it...so yeah, for this one, I used graphite stick (I've written it in the description I think) and a blending stump or tortillon, I think they're called that as well. It's just tightly rolled paper, made into what looks like a pencil shape, with a pointed end. :-)

      Amazing....As much as a draw, I just use a pencil and a eraser. XD But I'm getting better tools so It can be easy for me to draw things without using so much pressure on my pencil. :O I draw with light pencils, which to me is good but...I need betters. ):

      Yeah, if you use a blending stump, just remember "less is more"...what I mean is, at first, it's very easy to use too much graphite pigment from an adjacent area of the picture to produce skin tone. It's always easier to build up the tone, than take it away...and this way, you will use less eraser and not erase any of the paper either!! :-) Which will help preserve the paper quality and it's thickness and texture. ;-) When you say you draw with light pencils, do you mean that the lead is hard?

      I mean the lead is very soft and doesn't do much. I also use the blending stump for little things like eyes or ears or mouth! :) An then I do the rest. XD Funny how you bring up the blending stump when i just got one a think a day ago. :O

      Yeah, that is funny isn't it? We must be thinking on a similar wavelength, hey?!
