    Scanning in Line Drawing Help!

    Hi guys, I need some help...

    Lately i have been very intereseted in digital art, and even flash cartoons...but im so tired of mouse drawing all my images. I learned how to colour black and white drawings in photoshop, but i need to know what the best type of pencil to sketch with is before i ink, so the scanner doesnt pick it up. Ive seen it before, and it looks like a blue colour, any idea what the pencil is called?

    The pencils are so called non-repro or non-photo blue pencils. Sanford sells the in the US and you can obtain them from www.bluelinepro.com, for example. But beware, they feel a bit waxy and the ink sometimes doesn't hold on it. I've experiemented a bit with them but only you them very rarely.
