I don't know what it is, but every drawing I post seems to have smear marks from my damn graphite. >:o
I am just using a basic pen #2 HB pencil copy paper and my hands.
...petty complaint is petty...
tl;dr If you can't read that's sad...#Firstworldproblems.

I read that as my pap smears too much, which to be fair is a really horrible thing too.

Use a lower numbered pencil (although it will be lighter) or try out a paper with more tooth. Smooth papers tend to smear more easily :)

Use a harder lead, it'll smudge less.

Try to draw from top-right to bottom-left - or the other way round if you're left-handed - and place a sheet of paper under your drawing hand. Copy paper is smooth, and so smudges easily, which can be remedied either by using a harder pencil (less prone to smudging) or using drawing paper. Depending on what weight and make you get it doesn't have to be expensive. :p
