Here's my list of art materials as requested. I'll do my best to explain what I use and why as
well as where to get them. Lots of Manga specific art materials availableHERE.

Work Space: How to set it up
Pencils: What Kinds do you need?
Erasers: They aren't only pink and square
Pens: What kind of inker are you?
Templates: Need a fast circle?
Curves and Edges: How to keep it all clean
Paper: How to choose.

Accesories: Not required..but nice to have
Digital Art: Is your system ready?
What you see:
A) A nice, large,clean,
flat,sturdy, well lit table.
B) A storage system for

paper, reference materials,
tools and other art related

C) A tool rack within easy
D) a comfortable chair.

The #1 important thing to consider when setting up your workspace is "comfort". Remember , you will be
sitting here for hours at a time. Make sure your area is well lit and as clutter free as humanly possible. I like
to keep inspirational objects and reference material around my work area so I can stay juiced about what I'm
doing. (Notice the DangerGirl action figure set over the desk). I also like to keep all my tools with reaching
distance so I don't have to break my train of thought to grab a tool while working. I hang them on the wall to
keep my desk space clean and clear. I keep a large collection of Video Game mags and manga on hand to
use as layout or reference material.

If you drink or eat at your desk make sure your food/drink items are secured. I've accidentally spilled more
coffee on artwork than I care to mention so now I keep that stuff on a side stool away from my workspace.
Comfortable, Clean & Bright!

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 just
individually pick out 2 or 3 that will work for you. I'll try to explain what
factors should influence your decision.

The chart to the right shows
what the different "Grades"
of pencil are. You've seen
the infamous yellow#2 or

2B pencil all your life at

school. Now looking at this
chart you can see what that
means. H = Hard lead.
Hard lead makes a lighter
line and is used mostly for
drafting. 9H is as hard as it

On the opposite side of the spectrum are the B grade pencils. B has a soft
lead so it makes a darker line. 9B is like mascara.

I choose the middle ground.
an HB or F pencil has a
nice versatile grade.

I use about 5 different pencils over the course of a drawing. I rough in with a photoblue. Clean up line art with a lead-holder pencil and then detail with a .03 mechanical.
