I love the detail on the cat's fur. Looks soft and petable. Good work.

I must say the 0.9mm seems like a great addition. I am so interested in it ^^ I am just wondering how hard it is to get the lead. :)
Love the sketch!

You've captured a wonderfully calm cat face. I love it when my cats look like this - it tells me that all is right with the world.

Love Mr. Frodo. Wonderful in .9mm Wish I could find a Sanford PhD Mechanical Pencil in .9mm. I have not given up. It is so nice to have all sizes of Mechanical Pencils in your Drawing arsenal.
Have you tried the Uni Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil?
I have both the 0.3mm and 0.5mm
take a look on You Tube:

Sherrie- Thanks for the youtube of Uni Kuru Toga, very interesting pencil! I am currently using a cheaper Pentel mech pencil (tho at $4+, I don't really consider it that cheap). I started using a 0.9mm lead when I was studying architectural drafting and used it because it yeilded a good variety of line widths for hand lettering. I continue to use it for drawing because it gives me different line qualities that I prefer in my artwork. I actually prefer using wood pencils but I don't like trying to sharpen them when I am drawing out in the field.
