    Learn to draw better, and cleaner. Maybe some art classes would help.
    A normal #2 HB pencil works in most cases. I'd use ink though for that sharp pro look.

    Just curious, but why don't you know what a pencil looks like? Typically they are thin and long, made of wood (various colors), and have a dark grey graphite point.
    Seriously, just go to an art store and get maybe 5 different types and try them out. Unless of course you live in some remote South American Mountain Village. But wait, you have internet access, therefore, you must have access to an art store.

    ^^^^hahaha

    yeah man, you're not giving cats much to go on. Ok you want your shit to look clean. Clean like what? Highly rendered forms, detailed linework, expressive strokes, something you can erase away and ink later?
    Before you ask cats to cater to your needs by telling them over and over again to "Show Pictures" ... Why don't YOU put some work in?
    YOU find examples of pencil work you admire.
    YOU post pictures of different styles of pencils for cats to comment on.
    Then YOU might actually get help finding what YOU'RE looking for.

    Truly not trying to be a dick but...
    I'm sure people wouldn't mind giving you advice on art supplies but I don't think they're going to be too eager to go on your little scavenger hunt.

    peace

    ALWAYS use a Bic #2 mechanical pencil, make sure its all black and that it has a white eraser....

    use charcol for your sketches and then rub your hand all over it, in the end it makes it look REALLY good:idea:
