I love using this mechanical pencil I have(I've used it so much the first part of the brand's worn off but I'm pretty sure its a steadler, I can make out mars technico?) it has these massive thick leads in it that make it a dream to shade with, especially if you use those kneadable erasers you can get some really cool effects. Also Something I didn't find out until I had had it for nearly two years, the cap on the back doubles as a sharpener so you can refine the tip of the pencil:loves: V2

Well. Idk. But I like to draw with my Sakura Manga Set Mechanical Pencil and either .6 or .4 Pen for outlining depending on what I'm working on. I just color with Sharpies and Liquimark Washables and some other markers that are jumbled together in my bag

Omg copicssss. I've used pretty much every tool listed, and copics are by far my favorite. There are so many different colors, and they're refillable! And it doesn't take much practice to learn to use them, they make it so much easier and way more fun to draw I love em I have like 6 packs lol

Colored pencils, Charcoals, or shading pencils like F, HB, B 2B, etc. I have used color markers but not very much, since my sister no longer uses her I might ask to have them since I bought the original ones she had for her. Oh and they're the expensive markers, Prismatic I think.

I use sharpies although I'd quite like to get some copix.

I like markers, especially the scented ones. The colors are brighter than colored pencils, but if I make a mistake than then the picture's pretty much ruined. Ink pens are nice, I like the sharpness it brings to a pic. Pencils are just pencils. I haven't tried much of anything else tho.

Colored pencils are cleaner, but watercolors are just nicer to work with.

Micron pens and regular colored pencils, because I can take them everywhere without a big mess. XD

I personally use coloring pencils mostly. Ever since I was a little kid. However, I also like to play around with Copics and Neopikos. I also have these pastel things I loved to use like 10 years ago a lot! These days... Not so much. I also like using Inktenses, even if I'm not that good with them yet.
