I like pencils for drawing, obviously, and also for virtually everything else. I prefer pen for when I'm taking notes, though, because I never have to worry about the lead breaking and I don't have to be all perfectionist and I can just cross out things when I make a mistake. (I can never do that with pencil for some reason. XD I'm strange.)

I'd say pens. Although, I really don't have a preference. o_o; Pens are just... easier. And they usually don't snap in half while they're in my backpack like all my pencils tend to do. x_x I like to take notes in color... and I can't really do that with pencil. And the lead gets all over my hands sometimes... but I guess ink works the same way.

I prefer pencils if I need to erase. And it I want what I write to look neat. For some reason, when I write in pencil my handwriting gets neater. O_o

I usually prefer Pencil because I draw a lot. I tend to get ink smeared all over my hands when I use pen, and it never fails that I make more mistakes when I'm using a pen than with a pencil. XD

I definitely prefer pens! I just don't like writing with pencils for some reason. ^_^; Pens write smoother and darker, and if you buy the good kind with pigment ink or something like that then they won't really smear. I especially prefer them when drawing, and trust me, I draw a lot!

Pens, I just get used to writing with pens than pencils. Don't ask me why though.

PEN!!!!! Cil.

I'll go with pencils, at least you can rub out the mistake if you make one, and they're easier to write and draw on (IMO)

I use both but I like pencils better.

Pens, I write and draw with pens. Provided you don't make a mistake, pen pictures can look awesome!

Mr Cat Dog
April 8th, 2005, 12:30 PM
I don't draw at all (I dropped Art last year), so I have virtually no need for a pencil, apart from drawing graphs or stuff. So, then good ol' fashioned pen gets my vote. It pwns the pencil ^_^

Eastenders is crap!

I can't STAND writing in pen. My eigth grade teacher made everyone write in pen. It was ROUGH. Pencil is erasable and gives you a much more satisfying feel. The only problem is that about 75% of pencils are very lame. I can only really draw if I have a pencil with good lead that sharpens well.

I really wish mankind could master the concept of the colored pencil. You can barely sharpen those things, and they smear with regular pencil, and you can't erase them. If only I had better things to color with. :\

I like pencils, because you can draw with them and I'm also more quickly when I write with them.

I <3 Pens better~ 'Cuase they're smoother, and you don't have to fret when you run out of lead. o.o;

April 8th, 2005, 07:18 PM
Hm...I'm one of those "use whatever I can find" people...but I use pencil more often than not, because I don't have/don't know of any pens around here. Except for my micron pen, but that's for drawing, not writing. I did buy a pen for writing from the store, but the stupid thing never worked (even after I had just opened the package)...blah.

I love my .5 mm mechanical pencil. I use it for everything.

Mari
April 8th, 2005, 07:23 PM
Pencils for me~
For drawing...and for any other random stuff Mari does, I find it more useful than pens. And, I can't live without any erasers, so if I need to write with pens, I buy those pens that have erasers on them! X3

April 8th, 2005, 07:53 PM
I write like 543538545493 times neater in pencil for some reason o.o And I always end up drawing on myself with the pen xD I like pencils better.. the mechanical ones though o.o

edit: im a retard, i just voted for the wrong one xDDDD

I use a pencil, I write neater with that than a darn pen, just too rough. >.< Anyways, I write 1000 times neater especially when I write with a machanical pencil! =D

Anyway, I prefer pencils. I make alot of mistakes [especially when drawing]

I use erasable pens, so ha! I have to catch my mistakes quickly though. Once it starts to dry it is still erasable, just not as much comes off as it may have before. Pencils for drawing and sketching of course, obviously. Although if I'm not really paying attention to a lesson or I just have a doodle in my head that I want to put on paper before I loose it, if there is a pen in my hand or nearby (ex., at my computer desk I only have pens and one pencil but it isn't sharpened and I'm too lazy to do so), than I'll use that.

Pen or pencil, I still have to improve on my penmanship.

April 9th, 2005, 05:56 PM
I prefer pencils for writing, unless it's one of those really nice pens that looks like a needle at the point. For art, I still prefer pencils, but I always ink my work.

I chose Pencil. There are good and bad things for both. Pencil better since it had eraser

Lady Pearl
April 9th, 2005, 06:34 PM
I love pens since they are long-lasting and don't require any sharpening or any limited uses. It emphasizes the image and handles deeper colors than pencils. Pencil erasers might not be great either since they usually get smudgy. I just prefer pens and write with neatness without having to mess up usually. *isn't able to put smileys in her post and begins to cry*

I really don't appreciate how you're posting such a strong opinion and wishing death upon another over the inferior choice.

A pen is way better, it's permenent, and refillable, and more. You're just trying to avoid the fact of the matter with your 'OMG's and 'GAR!!'s. You'll never learn to accept that your wrong, it's always going to be this way, isn't it?

Uneducated FOOL!

The pencil, since the beginning of time, has been proven to be free of ANY contradictions and constantly comes in through the punch! People like you can't FATHOM the sheer perfectioness of the pencil. You'll be using your pens all your life, and right when your on your death bed, you'll be saying to yourself...

"Gee, my life woulda been better had I used a pencil instead."

Convert, convert now! It's the only right way, your way is wrongWrongWRONG!

I bet you've never seen the miracles of ink. America's roots were written through with ink. What do you think the Constitution would be if we didn't have ink? Yeah, I'll bet you Bill Clinton would have erased the Bill of Rights and then added ammendments saying it's alright to commit adultry!

Pencils are for the moment, Pens are forever. I think you're the uneducated fool. Seriously, I don't even think you've ever used a pen. And later you'll just make up silly examples of why a pencil is better.

Seriously Dakota, I've never really liked you. You're a melodramatic, yet selfish individual, just like your pencil. I bet you disgust your own parents.

Pencils better than Pens... pfft
Pens have always and will always own pencils.

Complete balderdash!

As anyone knows of human imperfection, they know that people make mistakes! And if you make a mistake with a pen, what then? You can do nothing...However, a pencil caters to the basic human psyche of imperfection and allows people to change their mistakes!

I bet you used pen when you were little and decided it was better. How faltering! Any moron can tell a pencil is better! I bet all your pen using friends are outcasted by their peers because of their choice in caligraphy...

You've always made me vomit Brittany, and this just proves you have no sense! Why would someone use a pen! It's like, so the most important thing in the world to use pencil!

Pencil is better than pen...flat out...end of story...to disagree is heresy!!

BOO ya!

You really understand nothing! The points you listed were based on completely biased, single situation concepts! Through the invention of white out, you can now do anything that you would want to do with a pencil with a pen!

Ofcourse, you were probably sitting in your room twiddling with your pencils during the time of this invention's glory, hanging around with your pencil friends!

For once in my life, I can actually say I despise you Dakota. Your tactics for getting ahead of me in this debate were completely irrelevant, just like the use of a pencil.

It's obvious that a pen is better. Think about it, a student may be forced to write in pencil, but the teacher checks the paper in pen! And why does she do this? Because it's permenent. Without that attribute, how could you trust yourself writing a check?! Ofcourse, you probably never go shopping anyway, except to buy those dreaded pencils.

Dakota! You're moma's so fat, she uses pencils over pens!

A simple ploy! The invention of white out was a simple ploy by the evil baby-killing satan worshiping Pen makers to give people a sense of propriety when they make a simple mistake with their hash pens!

Can't you seeeeeee??? Pen's are the work of the devil!! Anyone who uses pens is delivering their soul to hell!!

You family's so ugly, they had to sell their cattle to buy crappy pens!

Pah ha!

I'm afraid your god has blinded you, and your god is obviously not the lord of the christians, because even their scriptures were written in ink, but your foolish mind seems to have forgotten about that.

I can see, that you're just a little nublet, just like every other pencil user there is. A pencil is the invention of the devil. There have been far more flawed pencils than pens. Pencils make kids grow into bad habits and is known as a 'gateway' drug just like dope, and yet you don't care! Think about all of the chewed up pencils there are in the world! How many chewed up pens are there?! Half that amount? Less than half?

You really need get your facts straight Dakota, it's really getting you nowhere in this debate.

Both, because I use the pencil to draw, then I out-line it with pen.
That's only when I draw pictures, of course! :P

I cant really decide. I like pens when writing notes and doing manga sketches. But pencils (mechanical) I love too because you never have to sharpen them and they always have perfect points and best of all they never smear!
I'll go for both.

I never use pens , one reason is cause my cat loves getting a hold of em and then takeing a little trip to the vet for licking it T_T;

But I also have no use for it, what I can do with pen can be done in gells and sharp tiped markers =D not to menshen when you get a pen from the store there is only one working and the others are already dried out, you also hafta buy a new one every 3 days if you'r using it as a main staple in you'r work. So I chose pencil cause though you hafta sharpen it every once in awhile it lasts for over 35 drawings and you can get the best shading with them then any other drawing tool.

(As you can tell from my drawings)
I have way to much shading going on that a pen wont help me much o.o inless it's for the how to's but it shines on the scanner and camra so I'm mainly a Marker and pencil person ^^.I always run out of earasers though when I'm trying a new style or a new drawing so I love to keep a HUGE stack of (Big Mistakes rubber blocks ) handy.

April 15th, 2005, 04:45 PM
OK marker does not go under pen or pencil so if u like somthing cuz of marker then it does not go under any of those to XD

April 15th, 2005, 04:49 PM
I pikc neither because pecils can run out quickly and I have gotten splinters from them and pens, I have bad luck with them because thet always leak a lat to me. But not all pens. So I find them both useful.
