Which traditional resources do I use?

Here is a list of traditional resources that I use for art:


I usually prefer mechanical pencil (0.5 mm) for sketching. With HB or B2 lead mines. Currently I use Mars® micro 775 by Staedtler.

If I want to add more bold lines I will use 2B-4B pencils. I prefer Faber-Castell pencils but any other will do the yob.


Normal kneaded eraser. No special brand.


SAKURA Pigma Micron Fineliner Pens – Archival Black Ink Pens. Sizes from 0.001 to 0.5

Brush pens

Sakura Pigma Micron Brush Tip Pen

Sakura Pigma Brush Pen(FB and MB)


I have two sets.

Bigger one is Sennelier Watercolour Travel Box-24 Half Pans

Smaller for traveling -> Cotman Watercolours Sketchers’ Pocket Box.

Watercolor brushes


Currently I have some no-name markers, but I plan to switch to some more serious stuff. 🙂


Normal print paper is a must for loose sketching and idea research

Mixed Media paper from Fabriano (250gsm)

Watercolor paper from Fabriano (300gsm)

I do have other types of paper, but they are all similar.

I also have some colored fine liners, few white gel pens and some other accessories.

Pencil case that I use was ordered from AliExpress.

Light pad for tracing paper. Bought a cheap one from thrift store.
