I do digital work and traditional work but im more of a fan of traditional. Most of the time I use pencils(of course...ha!), for inking my work I use Pigma Micron pens, and Im a huge Prismacolor fan. (mostly because Im too poor for Copics..lol) I use Prismacolor colored pencils(my favorite) and markers. When I do digital work I use Gimp!

lol...well I use pencils...I always have at least 3 different pencils sharped differently...for shading I use my fingers...yes messy but worth it...other than that...markers and stuff like that for the lettering...I'm simple and I mostly do everything black and white-pencil draws...my fav and I'm best at that technique...all that's coloured is most times the lettering... =D

fingers are definitely the best for smudging!

I usually use pencils, but lately i started to try out new materials like oil(uhhh that was hard) and color pencils, where i use the ones from Faber Castell. I also got myself a graphic tablet last year, its really worth it for digital coloring.

Are the Faber Castell pencils good? I use the prismacolor ones. I absolutely love them.

They arent cheap but have very powerful color, I would say they are equivalent to Prismacolor sold in the us.


Edit: i added the link to the productsite if you wish to look for information.

i agree, markers are hard to get used to properly! which is probably why none of my pictures are ever colored! <3 black and white!
