Recommended Tools

Traditional Media

Graphite & charcoal, oil & watercolour painting and ink drawing tools. All tried and tested personally, all thanks to my obsession with buying too many art supplies.

Digital Artwork

What I'm currently using to create my digital paintings. Tools, what tablets I use, software & additional resources. 


Any other resources that I come across that I've found particularly useful. This includes FREE & paid resources for drawing & painting and much more.

These pages are a work in process and will be updated regularly when I discover new materials and resources than I find particularly useful! I hope to build this page to be an extensive page full of useful recommendations based on my own personal experience.
