Faber-Castell makes decent brush pens that you can find at any art store. If you're not going for color, they sell these four-pen sets of varying grey-tones and one black at a decent price. I think Prismacolor sells them too, but I haven't really tested out any other brand.

Sketchbook preference is really more about what you're going to do with it. You don't need paper that can handle super heavy acrylic paint if you're just going to draw in it. Some people like the paper to have a rougher texture, others like smooth. If you do a lot of scanning you might want one with perforated edges so the crease doesn't make a shadow when you scan the book. My personal favorite is hardcover ring-bound, that way I can draw on my lap when I'm on the bus or at the airport or what have you. And sketchbooks like those, I've purchased at a Wal-Mart for 15-20$ with great satisfaction.

Marker pens I go with Tombow actually. I had a Fabercastle pen for a while but those pens tended to lose the brush edge a lot quicker for me than the Tombows. I use the Dualbrush tip with them only though and nothing else from that company and I liked the brightness of the colors with them. They basically convinced my friend and I they were the ones to go to for colors. Marker marker I'd to with Prismacolor. Prismacolor markers are dual ended too (most markers are these days tbh) but I haven't really seen their dual brushes.


Sketchbooks I go to ASW and buy a cheap little 8 dollar hardbound. I use to go ringbound but I'd destroy them in transportation, however ring bound is way more space savvy for what you do. I normally go for a superwhite paper now and a bit smoother but that's just after years of going through at least 10 different kinds of sketchbook. The Strathmore ones are over rated in my opinion, the paper is a little yellow and it's a bit rougher in texture, which makes them great for like charcoal sketches in my opinion and I don't mind for larger drawings, but it's annoying for sketches for me.

But the best you can do is really go around and feel the first page in every sketchbook and see which one you like your hand laying against the most. Part of it is also what paper you like the feel of because you'll be feeling it constantly.

Default Question: What kind of Tutorial would you like to see?

I was wondering if there was anything I've done that you've wondered how I got there and what I used. I'm normally pretty open to explaining it but I'm going to make a fresh tutorial for a thing and I was wondering if there was a thing people would want to see.

I should probably ask what kind of fundamental you want to learn about.

Something as basic as composition, to gestures, or whatever. I'm not going tod o a hand tutorial or foot tutorial.There's already a bunch of REALLY GOOD HAND AND FEET TUTORIALS.

Composition fundamentals, then. I've been doing a ton of gestures.

And as far as hands and feet go, I can break up hands into their basic shapes, and feet I'm practicing, so I'm good. It's muscles that are a pain in the ass.

Tell me your inking process. I need work on mine. Also your cartooning. I'm great at realism and because of that I've killed all creativity in my body in becoming good at it.
