#penciltest Part II
My second test is done. I used 1900 TOISON D’OR pencils. These pencils are by the company KOH-I-NOOR Hardtmuth @kohinoor_hardtmuth
These pencils are good, no broken mines, unfortunately the pencils are scratching a bit...
They are very hard, this makes it a little harder to draw.
Due to the hardness of these pencils, it is difficult to draw strong contrasts. You have to draw layer by layer. Too many layers means more graphite shine.
An advantage is: as these pencils are very hard you can draw very fine lines with them.
Despite the hardness, these pencils blend very well. The 1900 TOISON D’OR pencils are suitable for very delicate drawings with little dark parts.
All in all, they are good pencils. The price is very good, too.
Please tell me what you think!

Also some advice from Rachel:
"How do you know when your skill is enough to be working as a full time artist” 🤔
Something I always suggest to artists seeking full time employment from their work is to first see how much income they’d need to make in order to completely leave their job. Being self employed is more about finding work and less about your current skill.
A good way to start working towards this goal is to pick a bill and pay it monthly with your art income. Once you have regularly done that, add another one and repeat.
Another thing to keep in mind: figure out what you want your main service/product to be! Running a business means having a concise plan/product/service. Where will all your income come from Commissions Licensing Coaching
Lastly, it’s so important to figure out your vision for your art. What is the WHY that will keep you going when you don’t have sales, clients, or nothing seems to be going right What will keep you motivated
