Oh very good. Watch your background though, on my (terrible) screen the blackness starts to fade in the bottom left.

Good idea. The background looks a little mottled, though.

The black background really makes the subject stand out.

A humble beginning for natural pencils. Creative and nicely done. I like the lighting and the subtle color in the background is a nice contrast.

I like this one very much. Inventive and clearly a writing tool of distinction. Sharp, sharp, and sharp.

I like the sharp detail, and appreciate the fact that the background isn't entirely black (which would make the pencil look like it was just floating).
