Here is the video for the Captain America drawing. The video shows the later stages of the process.
For this drawing, I primarily used the 2B, 4B, and a stump. The stump is not one of my favorite tools as it could get messy sometimes, but it does help to shade at a much quicker pace. If I know I am going to use a stump, I will just go in and start shading the darker areas first. Then I will use the stump to spread the dark graphite around to get the lighter areas. It’s great for creating smooth fuzzy rendering, which is another reason why I don’t like it too much. The sharper crosshatching texture, to me, is more interesting and dynamic. It’s all just personal preferences I guess. Anyhow, here is it. It’s a short video.
