Because the Mars Lumograph is, after all, a sketching and drawing pencil, I thought I should use it to do a bit of actual sketching:

Moving on, the Staedtler Mars Lumograph is a great pencil for writing, with dark, smooth lead that erases well. Unfortunately, I am not an experienced or skilled enough artist to really comment on how well it performs for sketching and drawing. Regardless of that, I will still recommend this pencil if you want to start using wooden pencils - or if you're looking for a pencil that is a bit better than the average.
