For Paper I usually use: 11X17 Canson Fanboy Comic and Manga Board

For inking I use: Black Cat India Ink, Raphaël Kolinsky Red Sable Fine Pointed Round #2 brush, and either Staedtler Pigment Liner Sketch Pens or Sakura Pigma Micron Pens... I also use Photoshop sometimes.

Coloring wise, I usually stick to digital. If I do traditional coloring, I will use Watercolors, or Dr PH Marten Dyes


I forgot about the pencils I use. I don't use regular pencils. I use a Lead Holder, Or Drafting Pencil if you call it that. I usually use 4h lead for my roughs, then switch to HB to tighten them up before inks! <--- Check out my artwork!

It's been a long time since I've been around. Hopefully not too much has changed!
