What I use

What happened to me today…

I was going to write a post about how I make my bookmark, but when I looked at the time, it was already 11’o clock pm.

I figured I needed at least an hour to finish my bookmark. Also, I had to do my homework and study for math test. (Ew, math)

So here it is…instead of writing about making book marks, I wrote about what I usually use for doodling.

1. Mechanical pencils

-Many people use pencils to draw, but personally, I prefer mechanical pencil. The reasons are: 1. mechanical pencils never gets dull. This is very important to me, because I don’t like my drawings to get thick. 2. Mechanical pencils are easier to control. I don’t know if this applies to everyone of you, but to me, mechanical pencils feel lighter and more softer. They can always provide sharp, clean edges. 3. They are prettier. Yes, this is not a great reason why mechanical pencils are better than pencils, but it is true. There are so many varieties in mechanical pencils!

2. Sketch pads

I don’t use professional sketch pads to draw my pictures. I use any kind of medium sized ones, which usually costs me about $2-3. I usually buy them by the design on the front. If it is a normal boring yellow one, it makes me not want to draw anymore.

3. Eraser

Erasers might not be that important to you, but to me, the type of eraser that I use is crucial. I always use the pencil mechanical erasers. They are easier to control and they are more accurate when you use them. You can tell where the eraser will erase. If you have the big erasers, they sometimes erase the wrong place or makes your drawing dirty by smudging the pencil marks.
