I work almost exclusively in pencil with a .03 size mechanical pencil. I have no real reason except for that I have become accustomed to it. There are some really nice things like the tight clean lines and I don't need to sharpen. but it makes it a little difficult to shade large areas, thus the trailing off crosshatching as I lose patience. Cross hatching is an interesting thing, I always wanted loose spontaneous lines, I worked at it till one day in high school they just became spontaneous.
