How do I smudge it to be as smooth as your work? I've never understood what I'm doing wrong, is there some secret pencil hardness or tool to use? Maybe the type of paper? I'd really love to find out how
Hiii! Your drawing is really good I like it To draw hair, I use a pencil not so sharpened between HB and 4B, and then i play with the eraser giving it some light, and finally I use a mechanical pencil or a 2HB to give the idea and sense of hair. And if it still not so smooth, I use a blending stick I hope this is useful for you!
the technical term is tortillon for that blending stick. But in case u cant find it, just wrap a small piece of tissue paper on an ear bud and use that to smooth-en out the visible pencil lines on skin particularly. Hope it helps
