I make a sci-fi webcomic:

And I Mean to Collect by smbhax
And I Mean to Collect
Finally got a break from having to do establishing shots or group shots, so I had fun going freestyle on the background and stuff here. Also found this to be one of those where it wasn't quite working somehow--something was wrong with her right cheek, particularly--and then I gritted my teeth and erased the pencil outlines, and man, all of a sudden it's way better. Need to be able to erase lines more. ^_^

This is watercolor art for my hard sci-fi webcomic, "Supermassive Black Hole A*." Prints are available here, and for the next six or so days the original is up for auction on eBay.

Team shot! Sorta. The shading on each of these people sort of ended up being done a little differently. A few rough spots but some of them came out interestingly I think, like the big shadowy area covering most of the guy on the left.

This one got pretty crazy, like the eyes got screwy and I had to repaint them and then just paint over them and there was white ink everywhere and boy. But it turned out kind of intense!

Spillway
You know, drawing someone being carried limply like that is a lot trickier than you might think! : o I had to resort to examining a clip from Baywatch. : ooo Anyway it seemed to work out all right eventually--more detailed than my usual, too.

Somehow a bunch of dark blue washes over this one worked out pretty well. : ) Also thought the big boldish brushwork in the lower area came off pretty well.

Your webcomic has been a favorite of mine for years now, I really enjoy the high contrast black and white art, and the sci-fi pulp feel of the storylines.

Just read your eraser review, loved it. I too have struggled to find something reliable to pair with my graphite. I have used the Staedtlers for most of my drawing career and have been pretty pleased with the results, although as you said, it tends to scatter a bit during heavy use. You have intrigued me and I think I will purchase the top four of your list to give them a go. Your tests were in the H-B range where as I work primarily in the 4-6B range when using graphite so I am curious to see how they handle the softer leads.
