    I love the Staedtler vinyl erasers. I’ve used them for years! They erase cleanly and don’t pick up ink when using a G-pen with bottled ink.

    I use both the Copic and Canson marker pads and would recommend either, for different reasons. The Copic pads allow for smoother blending, but the Canson pads show the ink a little more vibrantly. I’ve also used the X-PressIt blending card. This is a heavier paper that’s well-suited for Copics, and give incredible blending and color saturation. The biggest drawback is that it’s only available in US letter size. However, with the X-PressIt, all of the black ink and technical pens I’ve tried are smudge-proof with Copic Sketch Markers, including many that otherwise would just smear with Copics!

  •  I use the Wacom Bamboo, it’s really nice. Though for those with limited funds, they might want to check out Monoprice tablets (Plug! 😀 My review of one here: http://fav.me/d4w333j )

    I’ve been drawing digitally since I was 18 or 19 years old, but my husband still uses traditional media. I’m some what baffled how a man who can’t color worth anything on the computer can sit down with some Copics and make a stunning picture. (It’s the complete opposite for me. My coloring attempts with Copics look like a 5 year old did them. Give me Paint Tool SAI, Manga Studio, GIMP, or Photoshop and I can suddenly color again…)
