These are all the tools I use.

A good locking compass is essential.

Uni Pin Drawing Pens

I love these pens, they seem to last forever!

Steel Ruler

Throw away that plastic ruler. Get some solid steel.

Strathmore Bristol Paper

View on Amazon

This paper is really, really good for working in ink, it's smooth and heavy. I started using it because I couldn't find my favourite English brand here but it might actually be becoming my new favourite.

Set of 4 POSCA Paint Pens

View on Amazon

Acrylic paint pens, they work on pretty much any surface.

Fat Tip Posca Pen

View on Amazon

Great for filling in large areas and drawing thick lines.

Chisel Tip Posca Pen

View on Amazon

These are probably my most used pens. They've got a chisel tip which is good for controlling the width of your lines. Nice, smooth, even coverage too!

Bullet Tip Posca Pen

View on Amazon

If you're doing dotwork then you need these pens!

Ultra Fine Posca Pen

View on Amazon

The best paint pens out there, smooth, even coverage. If you're doing really technical work this pen works great! If you're going MASSIVE then check out some of the other paint pens in my kit.

Pentel Brush Pen

View on Amazon

I love this pen! Great for filling in large areas, you can refill the ink or even just dip it in ink.

Drawing Pencils

View on Amazon

Handy for drawing.

Coloured Pencils

View on Amazon

I don't use coloured pencils that often but when I do I use these. They're quite nice.

Trammel heads

View on Amazon

You can draw massive circles with these. These are good for one or two jobs but they are cheap and will break eventually. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Trammel Heads

With these bad boys there's no limit to how big your circle is. If you're planning on using trammel heads a lot, these should last a lifetime.

Staedtler Drawing Pens

View on Amazon

I sometimes use these for dotwork, they feel tough so you can be a bit rougher with them. For linework they bleed a bit more than the Unipins so you have to work fast.

Seawhite Of Brighton Paper

View on Amazon

My favourite paper, sometimes hard to find though.

Krylon Clear Coat

View on Amazon

Spray it evenly on the finished product to protect it.

Masking Tape

View on Amazon

If your painting the entire wall then this might come in handy.

360 Degree Protractor

View on Amazon

To be honest I never use a protractor anymore, but you never know it might come in handy.
