Thanks, I've been drawing and painting on and off since 2000, but didn't start with this particular type of pen drawing until a year and a half ago. The line quality is literally just a result of drawing straight lines on a piece of paper for half an hour every day for 18 months.

Thanks guys. I use a whole bunch of different stuff depending on what I feel like and what is closest to hand, to be honest. My favourite pen is a .35 rotring rapidograph, but they give zero variation in line weight and tend to leak and otherwise misbehave. I mainly use it for hard surface stuff, the last 2 pages of tech stuff were drawn with that.
For felt tips I use copic multiliners (great, fragile, expensive), Faber Castell PITT artist pens in dark sepia and black (great, sturdy, relatively cheap) and the occasional staedtler (nasty, nasty, but cheap). The copics draw pretty similarly to the rotring, the FC is what I use for most organic forms.
Any white gel pen will do, or if you get white gouache I'd recommend getting artist quality as it's easier to work with.
I use Letraset markers and I bunch of old, cool grey magic markers I still have lying around (don't get those, they suck).
That's my complete materials breakdown. And use smooth paper or you'll ruin your pens faster than you can buy them.
Didn't have much time to do any sketching this week. Tried to do a line sketch in Olivier Bisson's style and kind of failed so decided to colour it following this tutorial instead. Don't like the workflow but figured out some things about faking messy in Photoshop. I should also stop drawing people in broken–legged poses. And some crappy portraits to try and shake off the rust.
Hopefully back to drawing on paper next week.
