Sound of a Pencil by Cataclysm-X Sound of a Pencil by Cataclysm-X

:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:


Has any of you ever noticed that the sound of a drawing and/or writing pencil actually soothen people's minds? I've had the funniest experiences, in which I sat at a table, alone, with a sketchbook and a few pencils.

Within the next 10 minutes, an entire crowd gathered to sit around me, silently, to watch and listen to what I was drawing. I will never forget that moment. It was quite a sight, to say the least.





Super quick drawing of a Microphone and a pencil which I started last night. Finished within 4 hours :) I'm surprised it turned out quite nicely, lol. :eager:


Stuff that I used:
- 2H, F, HB & B 0.3mm mechanical pencils
- B & 2B 0.5mm mechanical pencils
- tortillions for blending
- Q-tips for blending
- Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook paper


So now that I have drawn your attention...





:star: Tomorrow I'll be doing a live chat interview on deviantART :star:


And you're all welcome to join to ask ANY question you want! (If you DARE.)



The interview will be hosted by *thefluffyshrimp and #AskTheArtist.

For more information you can check the official Ask-the-Artist journal or mine.
Hope to see you tomorrow! :)

Yes! I was interviewed in a fanzine recently and I said the same thing...that I enjoyed the sound of the pencil on the paper. Silverpoint makes a nice sound too.
