    8 color pantone tria markers
    15 soft pastels
    24 watercolors + couple of old brushes
    bunch of Acrylic paints + brushes.

    sculpting
    some standard sculp tools

    And my sketch tools
    12 mars lumograph pencils 4H-6B

    Pic 1: It's hard to see the tablet but it's in there also Penne Arriabata with meatballs. Breakfast of champions.


    Pic 2: Sweet ass tackle box filled with a little bit of everything including water color crayons, those are fun. Also in the white bag is plaster mix and red clay. Edit: Now with handy censoring because I just realized you can see my junk through my shorts. Feel free to enjoy my finely sculpted calve though.

    During one night I painted intensely self-portrait. Later in the early morning I turned the lamp on and the scratches revealed my struggle.
    That's my magic Wacom .

    Yes, she is sexy
    Its the Cintiq 20 a little over 20" of tablet display, with the sensitivity of a rabbit clitoris-customized shortcut buttons, full physical screen rotation and tilt. I can lay her down flat on my lap, sit her on a 45 degree angle on my desk, sit her up like a normal display... I love her, but shes a sometimes, everyone that sees her just wants to use her...and she loves it.

    Farvus- ...er...hey man youre not suppose to sharpen the tip of your stylus...damn

    JLAlfaro - Hehe. I didn't sharpen the tip. It got a bit angular after one year of using it so I replaced it with new one.
    These scratches are actually nothing serious. The photo was made few months ago and the surface is still very smooth

    atlantik-> that brush pen is by Niji®. it's called a waterbrush. I have several of these and have had good results. they do tend to wear out, but i've also been putting different shades of inkwash in them (some pale, some richer). if you use one with just water and have a dry watercolor or guoache pallette, in my experience it's good to have an entire different pen charged with water and ready to go... esp. in a life drawing session where time is tight. good product though, i give it my guggendorsement...
