Sometime ago I watched a DVD by Casey Baugh. In it he showed a "pounce" tool that he made with powdered graphite and a sock. Today I came across the graphite I purchased a long while back and I made the sock thing like Baugh suggests. I "pounced" it onto the paper and tried to get some of the effects Baugh does by adding and subtracting. My drawing totally sucks next to his--but I think I understood some of what he espouses. I need to watch the DVD again, because I believe he did all sorts of things that I didn't...(like alcohol in a sprayer too). The interesting thing was how the pounce tool got alot of graphite down onto the surface in a big hurry. It was all sort of messy--but it could have been even worse. I'll use this pounce method next time I go to Hipbone Studio.
