we were told 4H for constructions, and 2H for filling lines in. i wouldn't recommend B pencils, as they appear grainy and smudge a lot. i'm not sure it matters that much, once it is clear and (as much as possible) correct.

5b for construction lines always and a 5h for heavy lines

I use 6H for construction lines then a HB for heavying, Dont use the 5B 0R 6B pencils. they abuloutly suck and will ruin your drawings.

6H and HB. Dont use the B pencils, They are garbage and they will ruin your drawings.

2H for heavy lines to make them heavy but still neat to get marks. 3H for construction. Light enough to still be seen.

I use a 3H for light lines and a H for normal ones, if you want to go over something heavily I suggest an F, it's halfway between a HB and a H, and it's buildable - not to dark or light. Don't use B pencils for TG, they will smudge and ruin the whole thing!

You can use any pencil but I use a 4H for construction lines and a H for finished lines. You can use whatever pencil you think is best.
