Sweet baby Jesus in a smoking birchbark canoe!

I'm trying to do concept art for Safe Passage.  I'm using up those stupid Bic plastic mechanical pencils just because I didn't want to feel like I wasted my money.

I was told, "You only spent two bucks on them.  Just throw them out if you don't like them."

I just found out I wasn't going crazy.

Hold it at the right angle, and you can shove the led back into the barrel no matter how far out you extended it.

I was wondering what the problem was while doing my art lately.  Now, I tested it, and it takes very little pressure to do it.  If I was using pencil shading and such, they'd be fine.  But for my undersketches, they suck.


And if I ever find myself shopping and bored while waiting, I'll buy a proper drafter's mechanical pencil, thank you very much.  I only have two of them right now, anyway, one more won't hurt.
