What You Need
Many aspiring artists worry too much about art supplies. There almost seems to be the belief that buying the right stuff is the single most important key to creating great art, but that’s like thinking you’ll be able to swim as fast as Olympic gold medalists do by wearing the right swimsuit. It doesn’t work that way.

What really matters is not the pencil but the brain of the person holding it. Experiment to find the size, styles and brands you like best. If it feels right to you, that’s all that matters.

Paper
I almost want to cry when I see that someone has put hours and hours of work into drawing on a piece of loose-leaf notebook paper. Do yourself a favor and get a pad of smooth bristol. It’s thick and sturdy, and can hold up to repeated erasings.

Pencils
Pencils come down to personal preference. Perfect for me may be too hard or soft for you. I like a simple no. 2 pencil like the sort we all grew up with, but there are pencils of all kinds of hardness and quality. Try some out to see what kind of marks they make. The softer the lead, the more it may smear.

Pens
Get a good permanent-ink pen at an art store, one that won’t fade or bleed over time. Don’t confine yourself to super-fine tips. Have a variety of pens with different tip widths for the various lines you need.
