soulreaper, its not realy the pencil u use but more the way u use it.
u wont use a hb and a 8b pencil the same way but the 2 can give really nice effect. i usually do all my drawings in hb pencils and i use ''more b'' pencils to darken them a bit.....
and btw brand arent really important. at start i was loving staedhler pencils bnut whebn i buyed other i ddidnt really saw the change... (i often use hb pencils comming from companies that have their name write on it :).)
but by the way sthaedler have the best eraser and pencil sharperner....:grin: :grin:

anyway ill let the author comemnt on that.....btw really nice work.

element412 is right .. It depends on how u use ur equipment. . If you want to draw sharp edges , there's nothing better that a hb pencil .. But when it comes to shading , but smooth ( shading depends on the style you have .. Some likes dark strokes , some likes smudging after smooth strokes... So firstly decide what u want to do. Then the appropriate tools will help you ...

In that sketch i wanted a smooth shading , a fade effect , but the paper isnt a high quality one .. But its not that bad this way ...

Thanks for your reply's...
