    Just wondering what you guys use to draw with. I use a mechanical pencil for first sketch (a 0.7mm Faber-Castell with no-name leads). Then I ink it using felt-tips, one .2 and one about .3 or .4 I think. (They're the only black ink pens I could find in my house.) I either shade in greyscale using various pencils (2B, B, HB, H, 2H and 6B) or I use coloured pencils. I have a couple of Derwents left from when I was seven, some Crayolas, some WH Smiths (Italian brand, very good) and some other things like Alligators. So what do you use?

      I use whatever is around...

      Pencils, pens, chalk, pastle, paint, wax cryons...

      My favourite medium is acrylic paint, since watercolour doesnt like me much... To start i pic, i often use those pencil pen things. Ya know with the lead inside that you twist to come down...? There cheep, the leads dont break, the rubbers on the ends are good, there not easily damaged and there are **** good pencils! When i shade i use them too, i dont mess aroudn with those stupid expencive things that are difficult to use.

      The attached image is a very rough sketch, i mean litrally. It took me no longer than my lunch break to complete with one fot hose pencil pen thingies...

          I very rarely use any type of paint, I've got some tubes of Japanese watercolours in my room but it takes too long to mix them... BTW, nice pic Hajime

            That is a beautiful dragon, Hajime! *-* I envy your pencilling skills!

            I normally use a very light pencil for sketching, my extra fine Pilot precise rolling ball pen for inking, and normally Crayola colored pencils for coloring. I normally use what I can scrap though.
            I also use various art programs such as Paint Shop Pro 7, Open Canvas, the Gimp, and of course, the all powerful Paint!

                I use mechanical pencils, prisma colored pencils to color, and either sharpie or this nice ink pen I don't know the name of to ink and I draw my "good" pictures on bristal board. When I color on the computer, I use mspaint.

                          I use mostly mechanical pencils 0.5 and 0.7. I've just started using colored pencils and started colouring my pics.
                          I hate pencils. I never get any detail done with them cause I'd have to be sharpening the pencils all the time. For example this pic is done on A4 paper with an 0.5 mechanical pencil. I could have never done the details with a normal pencil.

                            WHOA. O_O That's all I can say about both of those drawings.

                            And I suppose that I normally just draw with whatever I can find, but I did get some nice pens the other day at an art store. I have no idea what kind they are.. ;

                              Whoa Mewstor, that is some pic! Hm, when I CG I use Freehand and/or Fireworks, but I rarely CG. It takes too long, I don't even have an optical mouse so it's hard to get the fine details.

                                *scratches chin* Hmmm... What do I use to draw?...
                                Well, to bee honest, all I ever use (when I'm at school) is my good ol' trusty 0.5mm mech, and the erasers designed for that model are very nice... I also have some bigger erasers (vinyl) that do bigger erasing jobs... I also keep a piece of sandpaper with me, for when I need to point (Drafter's term for 'sharpen' ) my pencil for fine details... I let the tip get a long, flat area for when I do shading... I used to carry around a couple of blending tools, but I rarely used them, and they got ruined if my backpack were to get wet, so I just leave them at home... The other things I have at home are a bunch of cheap Crayola colored pencils, a Micron (0.20mm) felt tip for inking (though I rarely ink), and a set of pencils, 6B, 4B, HB, 2H, 3H, and 4H...
                                But, most of my drawing work is done at school (like the one attached below), and in my 45 minute study hall time (the pic below was done from guides to finish in just that one period, and I took another 5 minutes in my next class cleaning a tiny bit up)

                                Oh, dear! I forgot about what I use on my computer, lol!
                                For most things (like my avatar/sig, which was done completely by hand, no filters) I use Adobe Photoshop (I just recently got CS, and I'm lovin' it!)... for some other things (high-quality lineart, like my previous avatars) I use Adobe Illustrator (also CS)...

                                --The pic attached, done in school, 50 minutes, only using 0.5mm mech pencil, no post-scan cleanups--

                                  Erm...a pencil, and occasionally a pen. Sometimes I draw on the comp, but not much.

                                  I use a lot of different things when it comes to art, but for most of my "standard" pictures, I use my 2H pencil (I erase a lot, so it's useful to have something so light) for the sketching part, a mechanical or HB/2B pencil for outline, and then I'll go on and ink it using one of my standard pens. My mom won't buy me the good felt tip inking pens because they're too expensive, though I've got them on my list for Christmas. The pens I'm currently using are those thin ONYX pens, I think. They might be about a 0.3 or something, because they're certainly thinner than my other 0.5 pens. I also use my Prismacolour coloured pencils when I'm colouring things. When I colour things on the computer, I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0. It's like Photoshop, but it's cheaper and it apparently doesn't have all of the functions which Photoshop is equipped with. =\ It certainly does the trick for me, though, since I've gotten plenty of compliments about my (awful) CGing and my graphic-making skills. XD;;

                                  Oh... and I use my wonderful Staedtler pencil sharpener and my white eraser of the same brand, of course. :3

                                    That dragon is pretty amazing.. see i coudl never do that. My work is quick and simple.. and ermm.. to the point. I can used most mediums.. although im only just adapting to computer art. I'd love to get a tablet...

                                    Ok, heres my best pencil work ever, and a peice i did with watercolours and acrylic. I LOVE acrylic.. simple amazing stuff.. and cheep too. I truly recomend acrylics to anyone who sues water colour. Its one step up and looks good on a veriety of different styles. Great thign is, unlike watercolour you can paint over black with white or yellow.. which is good for me. I make a lot of mistakes.. heh.

                                    Anyoen here ever tried using Oils? Jesus is that hard...

                                      I have semi-poor CGing Skills, but I am quite good in Graphic Designing though.

                                      My CG drawings come out... demented somehow... but otherwise, they are great.

                                        All of this stuff is GREAT... Q Man, I can't believe your avatar. I forgot to mention my erasers, I use an "E//RACER" for smaller details and a larger Faber-Castell vinyl eraser for big things, it picks up the marks very well.

                                            Meh, I use pencils that are dark. Mechanical pencils don't work for me :p I draw first with pencil, then I get a Ultra Fine Ink Pen *ballpoints are too messy* then I trace my drawing, and TADA! There it is ; I think fine tipink pens work best. Cus u don't have to press down harshly on them o_o;

                                            But on computers.. I just use anything.. :p Like you all can see on my banner below, yes, there it is.. hurrah..

                                            *gets killed by pencils*

                                              I use these materials as long as my stupid brother did not mess around with them.

                                              I first draw with mechanical pencils because that way I can get into little details like gems. Then I used my prized Sakura Microns to ink them before erasing. For colors, Prismacolor pencils were used mixed with those [email protected]$$ Crayolas.

                                              I wish I have Adobe Photoshop, but it's too expensive. I always wanted to use that program to color my pics.

                                                I mainly use whatever i've got when i'm drawing...
                                                When i'm drwing on the computer I first make a drawing and colour it, then I use abode photoshop to make all these cool special effects (and to write "muffin man" in red at the bottom )
