I use a .3 HB lead mechanical pencil to do these. I like the softer lead but I think I burned through 2 of my lead sticks for this drawing alone. It is very frustrating when I get toward the bottom of the stick and the pencil looses its grip. I remember as a kid I had a light touch with the pencil, I would do the drawings pretty light then give them to my brother who would fill in all the dark areas with really strong strokes, these days I am stuck doing them myself.
