WHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE TO WORK?
Fine art paper, 0.3 mechanical pencil + graffiti 0.3 mm B, pencils 2B and 6B, and kneaded rubber.
Disposable ink pens 0.05, 0.1 and 0.8. French curve set, 40cm ruler. Light table. Crow quill nibs. Acrylic black ink.
The brushes I use to ink, the one format I do like is a round liner (Fine Liner Sable 2/0 302). There are many formats but particularly I like that one because it is perfect for contouring, outlining and for doing fine details, it keeps the trace steady and straight, and many people like to use it for signatures.

Don't try to get the same tools that your favorite artist uses, thinking you're going to be able to make it just like them because those tools work for them. It's technical skills, and everyone
