Started sketching this years ago, sketched the left side of the shaman with a 4H pencil, then kind of forgot about it. Found it last week in my folders and decided to finish it. You can tell the difference between pencil hardness and sharpness. The left side of the shaman (looking directly at him) is sketched with 3 or 4H pencil, the right side is with a HB pencil. The right side is much softer and has less pronounced edges. HB or any B-grade pencils are good for shadows and soft edges.
