What is your favorite type of pencil to use? I usually buy Staedtler for doing my pencil portraits, and for sketching I use the cheap BIC mechanical pencils.

A sharp pencil is preferred. ;)

For sketching/pre-drawing I use a Pentel 0.5 2H. I find 4H to be too hard and light for the soft pressure I use. To finish I'll use a Pentel 0.7 or 0.9 HB or even a stick of HB graphite (think of those big red pencils you had in Kindergarten. If you're old enough) available at most art shops.
