Hi Uncle Red,
regarding line variations on a pencil:
Andybiotic showed this (for me stunning) little trick in another thread regarding learning to use a flex nib.
He proposed to practice with a pencil before
torturing using a flex nib, or to be able to practice the technique even without owning a flex nib
It´s amazing, but you only have to write with the pencil like with a flex nib.
It helps when you beveling the lead before according to your writing angle to have a flat spot to write.
This was only (I think) a HB lead, the effect should be even stronger if using a softer lead.
