When you sketch,

Discussion started on

Are there some medium you avoid more than others? For me, I tend to avoid any sort of ink pen. Mostly because I tend to do loose rough sketches starting out. Then correct minor lack of proportions when the basic shapes are finished.

I always just use pencil to sketch. I usually start with a hard pencil (like a 2H) and do very light preliminaries, and then go in with a softer pencil.

I use pencil for sketching roughs when planning an illustration, but will use pencil or ink for thumbnail sketches. I prefer to use ink when sketching in my sketchbook though - it makes me commit to sketching instead of wasting precious time en plein air fussing about making everything perfect and I love the results.

#2h light sketch work, refine lines, then go over with softer pencils and hard pencils for detail work.
