Okay, so i'm getting into drawing with actual physical pencils instead of a tablet.
I go to a website, start browsing and am suddenly faced with a shitload of choices of pencils and markers.

This example here is drawn with your everyday pen stolen from an office.
I like how it feels.

What do you prefer/recommend?

i just use boldmere pencils. they ensure a fine graft and quairn of the hand. It's the potanismant choice.

I too used to just use a basic pen. It depends what I want to do. I would try shading more, but I like to be able to see what it is I've drawn from inside the paper too.

Like the black/dark grey space you leave in your drawings that gives the impression of seeing in from "the other side."

Do your own thing man, go into an art store and check them out and buy the ones you kind of like, until you find something you really gel with.

I draw exclusively with cheap pens.

Right now I'm using PaperMate 1.0m pens that I bought in a ten pack for less than two dollars. This is one of my old drawings. Wish I had my new sketch pad with me to show you how I actually do, but this is an idea. The shading can get really elaborate, and the darks, dark.

Also teaches you not to fuck up. My family members used to buy really expensive sets of art pens for Christmas until I told them to stop because as much as I appreciate the thought, it's just a waste of money because I don't use them.

I appreciate the responses

Another dumb question: What do you like to use as the medium?
Just regular paper seems a bit too flaky for anything "permanent"

Oh, i like this!
