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.

Pens: What kind of inker are you?
Templates: Need a fast circle?
Curvesand Edges: How to keep it all clean
Paper : How to choose.

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