BlackWing… The Best Pencil Ever

I hardly type anything in my blog… I just post drawings, videos, photos and briefly comment but this post I want to tell you about this pencil. Every artists should invest in this as it is a badass pencil that will make your sketches even more beautiful.

When it comes to drawing… I use pretty much any standard pencil, marker or paint etc I believe that no matter what you use, if you have the skill and technique down then you can pretty much create anything out what you have and it will be good.

A friend from Canada and I were talking about equiptment we use and he shows me this type of pencil… The BlackWing 602 “Half the Pressure, Twice the Speed”. Only available in America he orders them and only uses this pencil. I was bit like “meh whatever” but then offered to send me one and give it a shot… I will be turned.

So Thursday I recieve a parcel which was lovely and inside is the pencil. Was so excited and I wanted to keep it for something special. I tried it out yesterday and what can I say… it is a damn good pencil.

It has a detachable eraser (that actually rubs lines out!) and once it gets a little to stubby you can extend it, the pencil itself is beautiful and draws across the paper so smoothly. And the quote stencilled on it… is true. I hardly have to force any pressure (which I do) and the wieght of the line is obvious.

He was right, I have turned to the dark side… to the BlackWing side and I heavily recommend this to all creators.

The next question I ask myself…

 

…What Will I draw?

  1. Pencils are important. ALWAYS! I´ll try to find it here, but I don´t have friends. In Canada. To buy pencils for me.
    I use just HB´s, B´s and H´s pencils. Also the ink pencils.

    Draw yourself holding a pencil!

    • Yeah I am pretty standard with em but yeah these pencils you need to order them from the U.S. Haha I at some point perhaps 😛 I did take some vain slefies with the pencil, any excuse.

      I like drawing with blue pencils, and then the ink on top. Or just ink straight onto the paper 🙂

  2. From the looks of it, the best part about that Blackwing is clearly its immense size.

    I’ve got to think a pencil that’s twice as long as your head is wide will last a hell of a long time! I wonder how that company stays in business?
