My drawing materials

My favourite drawing materials for realistic drawings

To make a good drawing you need good drawing materials, but quality doesn’t mean that you necessarly have to spend a lot of money. I buy matherials that are a compromise between quality and price.

My most important drawing materials are the colored pencils. I use them for every drawing I make. I use Prismacolor because they are very good pencils, easy to blend and perfect to make portraits.

Heavy weight paper for final artwork, smooth surface perfect for fine detail work and portraits. It allows to blend the colored pencils in a professional way and to add many layers of color.

I use the Uni-Bal white pen for the lights in the eyes, hair of face.

I always include these pens in my drawing materials everytime I want to draw a cartoon to make very precise lines. I think they are perfect for beginners becuse once the color is dry they don’t drool, for this reason it’s  easy to apply colored pencils close to the ink without make a mess.

I use the Promarkers when I want to draw cartoons. These amazing markers have two nibs. The fine bullet nib is narrower, making it ideal for more precise detailing and line work. The broad nib is great for quick visuals and filling in larger areas. They are very satisfying to use and like the stabilo pens, once dry it is still possible to apply layers of colored pencils.

I use these pastels when I need someting soft and easy to blend. For example when I have to make a blurry background. They are super easy and fast to use.
