I'm going to become a lot more serious with my art since I'm moving back home for a traditional university for art. (Computer Animation, but I've been told it's mainly focused on Art) Full Sail has taught me just a small portion of the basics, but I know it's up to me to take that and flourish it myself. Now with this in mind I've been reading a lot of comic books, Manga, Art, etc. Just to get everyone's take on how they go about art in their life. What I've mainly been reading is all the materials seem to be the same. So what would you guys say are your must needed weapons at home? Like if you were to have your own Art Studio; which is what I plan to do.
"Work for your self first. You can paint best the things you like or the things you hate. You cannot paint well when indifferent.
Express a mental opinion about something you are sensitive to in life around you. There is a profound difference between sensitivity and sentimentality." ~ John Sloan Gist of Art
Pencils, pens, brushes, paper (110lb Card stock), erasers, clipboard. Newspaper/table cheap set of student paints. That is all you need to learn.
Solid advice, except don't buy cheap student-grade paints. You'll be overpaying for dyed chalk and not getting any kind of color strength. If you want to go into painting, buy a tube each of titanium white, ivory black and red ochre, all artist grade paints. That'll be enough for your exercises for a while.
... I guess I should have said all of this already. I have enough paper, pencils, I don't paint or like doing it, I have pens, reference books, etc. I have a shelf full of the stuff. That's not what I'm asking about. You guys are misunderstanding.
