Which pencil is lighter, H or #2 HB? An H pencil is considered much lighter than a standard #2 pencil due to the harder graphite. The larger the number in front of H, the harder the graphite will be causing you to produce lighter more precise lines. As you start using B pencils, the larger the number in front of B, the softer the graphite will be causing you to get darker lines with much more graphite deposited on the paper.
