Art Materials — My Go-To Drawing Tools

I know a lot of people have a hard time deciding on which art supplies to use for drawing, thinking they need the most expensive supplies out there. But, in reality, all you need is a yellow #2 pencil (mine are black), a good eraser, and some paper.

But most of the time my artwork is digital, meaning I use a graphics tablet to draw inside editing software, like Photoshop, directly onto my computer. There are few graphics tablets out there, so the best advice I can give you is to do your research and find one that you would feel comfortable with and also fits within your budget if you have one.

I use a Wacom Intuos Comic graphics tablet. It’s small, but it works for what I need it for. At the time it cost roughly $100, which is one of the least expensive of the Wacom graphics tablets. Eventually, I would love to upgrade to a Wacom Cintiq, which can run around $800.

So take a look at some of the art materials I use for drawing below and see if they’ll be a good fit for you. If not, then you’ve got an idea of what to look for.

Next time, we’ll focus on painting materials.

I hope this helps…
