Few pencil sketches in Stillman & Birn Gamma.

I developed unhealthy attraction to water soluble pencils. I can't part with Stillman & Birn Gamma sketchbook. Where its gonna bring me?
People on the train. Man with pigtails, in the hat, pretty strange and definitely not sexy. I used few pencils, got 2 new, one Staedtler and the other "Gioconda". I drew Staedtler on the top, skinny body but very powerful led. I was looking for "Faber-Castell", didn't find it in "Pearl".
Sleeping people is the best subject, too bad they were called in too soon.

You made me laugh about the pig-tailed man. I've never seen a guy wear them like that (ok, long braids maybe), not those high on the side types anyway. Rest assured, I agree with your assessment. Love that pencil over the top of the first sketches you posted. It has a see-through quality that is so cool. The last two guys are fabulous!

Thank you very much CrimsonLeaves, I feel bad that my Gamma book getting filled so quickly, but can't help it. Book is too good to take with me on the train or street. This pencil on the top is pretty interesting, so manly, dark, inside light and thin body.
