When starting out you need just some basic supplies.


  1. Flat drawing surface (I use a black storage clipboard)
  2. Photocopy paper
  3. Standard #2 pencil
  4. Pencil sharpener
  5. Eraser
  6. Black felt tip pens/markers
  7. Ruler

When first buying supplies don’t worry about brand names. They just cost more. Keep it simple and cheap when possible. As you develop your skills and technique you can move on to better and more industry standard supplies. I also recommend getting a folder to save your artwork and see how you progress over time.
