STAMP-mechanical pencils by Sister-of-Charity STAMP-mechanical pencils by Sister-of-Charity
I fell in love with deviantArt stamps today and decided I'd try my hand at one. My artist friends and my art teacher always bothered me about my deep affection for mechanical pencils, so I decided to spite them further with this stamp, even though they don't even have dA accounts.

**1/21/2010** Thanks everybody for making this my most faved deviation. I hope it continues to spread the mechanical pencil love for years to come.**

Heh, I remember them getting their feathers all ruffled if we used Mechanical pencils! XP Granted, there are different types of lead pencils, but mechanicals are much more convenient! CX

I prefer .5 than .7 though because it much thinner.

When I make signs for my apartment-mates (we have indoor hallways between apartments, and it's a lot more social than average complexes), I always use a 0.7 pencil.

For all/most of my drawings on my page I use .5 mm mech pencils. I agree with this stamp.
LiviTheFighter Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

teentitansawsome Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2013  Student General Artist
yes, mechanical pencils are the best:D
horsesrock847 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yeah, but only 0.7. I can't even stand 0.5 they're too thin and break every two seconds!

They're good for small detail though

I like 0.7 pencils since they're more common to find and aren't too big or small.

when I look for my favorite mechanical pencil my sister yells at me to just use a 'normal pencil'. Then I yell at her that my mechanical pencil is special. She will never understand ;n;

when u start drawing something I use regular pencil. When I darkened the outlines I use mechanical. I use mostly mechanical for writing because it's easier for me and my handwriting becomes much neater.

Mechanical pencild are a lot better than regular ones when it comes to storage. Regular pencils constantly break and smudge and make everything dusty and smelling like graphite. With mechanical pencils you can just push the core back into the core chamber thing and it wont break of or wear down or draw on anything you don't want it to.
I nomally use regular pencils because they're easier to come by and I have to get rid of them somehow, but I certainly perfer mechanical ones.
When I was little my grandmother made me only use traditional ones because I disasembled a mechanical one and she found out before I could put it back together. I did, but she still didn't let me use any afterwards and storing them in pencil pouches was a real pain. Years later, I asked her to buy me some efficient, clean mechanical pencils. She brought up the disasembly instance as an excuse not to get me any.

I have so many mechanical pencils...I don't even know where they all came from XD
XShakaiFox Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013  Student Writer
I always buy Mechanical pencils Cause I hate to sharpen regular pencils :/ But Mechanical Pencils are more easier to work with, Even though they break ounce in awhile, They're still awesome.
haiircurlers Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2013
I find it easier to draw with them~
Mine usually break, every time I get a new one, it breaks after less than a week T^T
ouranselfy1 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2013
this is true for me to (>//<) for some reason it makes me write and draw more better and smoothly :D also you can just re-fill the led over and over again (o J o) nehh

I stabbed myself with lead, and it got embedded under my nail trying to fix one a few days ago... That's DEDICATION!! :iconmeowdummyplz:

Mechanical pencils gave me the feels...

Robot-Sashimi Featured By Owner May 13, 2013
Totally agree with you. Mechanical pencils are more efficient with producing led, and able to make beautiful dark lines with artwork. Also, with writing, my handwriting is really small, and can't be able to read it with a normal pencil or a 0.7 mechanical.
I use my regular sucky wooden pencil with shading big spaces, bad part with a mechanical pencil is shading will take longer if you are a 0.5 led user like me. :la:
WhiteLucke Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
There's also 0.9 lead xD
Robot-Sashimi Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2013
:icondarkrageplz: But its too thick like a normal pencil.
WhiteLucke Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner May 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You should get a 0.7 mechanical too and use that one for shading and the 0.5 for everything else :)
Robot-Sashimi Featured By Owner May 17, 2013
Yeah that could work too. But I just get a regular pencil because its cheaper than 0.7.
I could afford it but I don't want to be wasting money. :iconmingplz:
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner May 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh. With the pencils I buy, the 0.5 and 0.7 mm both cost just as much, and it's always good to have a few extra pencils because sometimes one will break, and people borrow your pencils to eat ( :hungry::pencil::chew::P ) or something because you never get them back sometimes!

But I can't afford new pencils either, and I have to make sure I get mine back when someone borrows one! I need the pencil and the leads!

Thank you so much for this :)
Mechanical pencils are awesome! Whenever I use wooden pencils and they get shortened down halfway, the lead always falls out D:
