Here's my list of art materials as requested. I'll do my best to explain what I use and why aswell as where to get them. Lots of Manga specific art materials availableHERE.
Work Space: How to set it upPencils: What Kinds do you need?Erasers: They aren't only pink and squarePens: What kind of inker are you?Templates: Need a fast circle?Curvesand Edges: How to keep it all cleanPaper : How to choose.
Accesories: Not required..but nice to haveDigital Art: Is your system ready?
What you see:A)
A nice, large,clean,flat,sturdy, well lit table.
A storage system for paper, reference materials,tools and other art relatedobjects.
A tool rack within easyreach.
a comfortable chair.
Pencils com in a wide array of options. You can pick up a box of designer pencils like the ones you see to the left. Or you can justindividually pick out 2 or 3 that will work for you. I'll try to explain whatfactors should influence your decision.
The chart to the right showswhat the different "Grades"of pencil are. You've seenthe infamous yellow
pencil all your life atschool. Now looking at thischart you can see what thatmeans.
H = Hard lead
.Hard lead makes a lighter line and is used mostly for drafting. 9H is as hard as itgets.On the opposite side of the spectrum are the B grade pencils.
B has a softlead
so it makes a darker line. 9B is like mascara.I choose the middle ground.an HB or F pencil has anice versatile grade.I use about 5 different pencils over the course of a drawing. I rough in with aphotoblue. Clean up line art with a lead-holder pencil and then detail with a .03 mechanical.I've used Millions of erasers over the course of my art career but I've finally whittled my choicesdown to 2 kinds.
A) Kneaded Eraser 
:This eraser usually comes as a plain Grey or Blue square. Once you open it from it's wrappingyou start working it like silly putty. Squeezing itinto a Ball...pulling it into a ribbon..folding it,squishing it..Kneading it, really. What's thepurpose? Well, you can squeeze it down into afine point and erase lines in hard to reach placeswithout disturbing the pencil lines around it.Another handy feature is that it doesn't completlyerase lines...If you just dab the eraser over thelines you can lighten them up for inking.
B) White Nylon Eraser:
This style is the best eraser I have ever used for
