i'm guessing your'e referring to the wispy featheredges? i use an old set of knitting needles to indent lines in the paper that stay clean when graphite is applied over the indented lines.the best and most obvious usage is for things like big cat whiskers when i want a clean white line for the whisker

I adore your bird studies! How much hours did you spend on this drawing? The smooth background consorts perfectly with the falcon.
