What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
I’m art junkie, I trying to buy every brand and try to find some ‘perfect tool’. In this moment, I like, Kolinsky series 7 brushes, Prisma color pencils, Pilot brushpen, Van Gogh watercolors, etc. Digitally, I working in Photoshop(it’s great but it’s not good drawing software in my opinion, and I’m using it since 2004) I prefer Clip Studio(Manga studio).

Just draw, every single day just draw. There’s no shortcuts, no magic, only magic comes through hard work.
