I'm sorry that I fail as an artist cause I didn't know that there were 2B, 4B, 6B and 8B pencils. I thought there were 2B pencils and then....other no name pencils. Ummm....didn't know much about graphite pencils either, so it was a surprise when sagepat came by with graphite pencils of various B's. She gave me a crash course in which one shades darker, and I think it's the 2b that's darkest...or is it the 8? And how many B's can one go up to? Hmmm....I never studied art in high school so don't judge me too harshly. I only draw for my personal gratification and to hear others say 'good job'. Those words make me feel reallllly good.
And what is up with the eraser that looks like play dough. I took it from her and started to rub something out. She's like 'NO!...Don't rub....lift.' Of course I could only stare at her like she's stupid, but from the smirkish grin on her face, apparently I was the idiot. Tch...whatever Pat. So she pressed the twisty rubber on the pencil marks and 'lifted' the marks. So it can help to lighten a spot and make it blend more. When she said that my mind pinged 'photoshop' and I said 'ohhhhhhh'. Then I kinda wanted some cool pencils and stuff too.
Oh....it was funny when the graphite pencil fell. It broke like it was nothing and I found it hilarious that she dropped it about 5 times and ended up with some tiny pieces. So much for the expensive pencils eh? Well, at least she's got 'more' now. lmao!
