I gave away all of my actual drawing pencils a couple of months ago lol XD I've found if I do lots of layers with a mechanical pencil I can get it fairly dark, probably not as a 8B pencil but dark enough for me ...Well, and I think that I'm probably too lazy to use more than one pencil lol ^_^
Ur too lazy? AWWW~ It gets bothersome sometimes but in the end, the portraits come out better. I used to be afraid of dark... I felt like it was overpowering everything else. Now i use it a lot! it makes such great contrasts.

Oh, and as a response to your journal - I have nowhere near the amount of skill you do, but I know how you feel about not having the inspiration to draw. If you decide to go back to drawing and don't feel like doing hockey players all the time, that's fine by me since whatever you draw is amazing work.
