Before there was painting, pen and digital, there was the pencil, for me. It is my favorite tool even to this day and I don't get to do it even that often anymore. My favorite pencil is Prisma and these are done with "Steel" color. Goes on like lead but you can't erase and it does not smear. These are drawings from a great black and white book I bought from the Swap meet a few weeks ago called A Pictorial History of the American Theatre 100 Years 1860 1960 by Daniel Blum. Great pictures of the actors back then and the costumes are incredible. These are folds and clothing studies.
