What tools for traditional drawing?
Okay, I'm quite a newbie when it comes to stuff like inking, etc...
So what tools (with tools I mean pens, etc...) should I get in order to draw things from lineart to be scanned, sketches, grayscale pen drawings to everything you can acually draw.
In example, I don't know tool to use in order to ink. What kinda colors to color drawings? What paper is good (I bet that there is better paper than the normal copypaper...)?
Tell me everything (and your opinions) relating to stuff like these.
And are there any good books around teaching everything about everything? I'd like to read those, suggest some (language only in english and finnish please)).
And yes, used the search...
The Artist's Handbook is a great book, even though it focusses more on paint than on drawing. I have an older edition, and it's indispensible.
I don't have this book, but it is focussed more on drawing materials. Sounds like a good one. Might help you. Hover over the cover image and read some of the pages they have for viewing.
Thanks, I'll take a look.
graphite pencil, carbon pencil, charcoal sticks/pencil, good drawing paper, charcoal paper, sepia ink/india ink, prismacolor markers( great and fun to use),kneaded erasers, staedtler erasers, x-acto knife, sharpener, etc.
good stuff you can use esp. when it concerns drawing.
Wow, thanks for the list!
just remember dude, all the fancy tools in the world wont make you a better artist.
