Greater croquis with a color lead |TIP32

 

After sketching The Grand Budapest Hotel in the plane with a Twin Marker, I wanted to practice an other tool. I opened my pen case and pick up a mechanical pencil. That was not a common one, that one had a red lead inside.

Color leads naturally give some nice effect to your croquis. I personally appreciate blue and red leads. Note that these leads are more fragile than the regular grey graphite.


1- A 0.5mm lead tends to break easily. I recommend to use a 0.7 or higher thickness.


2- Choose only mechanical pencils that include a metallic tube to support the lead.

Today I passed by an art shop, I picked up some new color. I choose mechanical pencil of the same color as the lead.

That’s all for the TIP of the day.
See yah!

If the sketching methods I’ve acquired aid me in my life and in my career, I believe that they can also help you to learn, and help you with your projects. Whether Design is a job or a hobby it doesn’t matter, so long as you do what is important to you.
