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!

Awesome. yeah you'll just figure out what you like as you keep going, If you go to a proper art store just ask if the paper you're buying is archival, over time everything diminishes, wether it be lightfastness or the canvas slackening/paper yellowing/degrading etc, everything diminishes, archival stuff lasts longer.

So find a decent artstore which stocks mostly archival stuff and just play around and see what you like, a artstore where you can go "hey, im trying to do x, advice?".

Did you do that with them? I was going to buy some but I heard they are leaky so I have steered clear so far. Would you reccomend? nb

Oh yeah, there's a store like that like 100meters from my front door. I asked them, what i could use as a medium and the cute girl there gave me some of this rough textured thick paper, which i really like

Archival is a new word (i'm not native english speaker) i'll have to look into that

>>51983
Yeah, the first time i used it, it was leaky as fuck because i guess the small point got a bit clogged.
But i still could recommend them, as it was only the first time and there's things you can do to remedy the problems.

Just have some extra paper on hand

Though we'll see how long they last and if the problems get worse for some reason
