Anthis: You always motivate me, yes I will be doing Character design too. i am exploring different styles mediums and stuff, can't stick to one style/ medium/ subject
Charcoal, I use medium intensity sticks of charcoals http://www.chenillekraft.com/site_me...hotos/9715.jpg Break it to smaller sizes for different areas. As for paper I haven't experimented lots of textured paper but smooth newsprint works fine for me, i just use lots of like 30 sheets under the sheet I draw, It gives some softness in the surface and gives more control for value control
Prisma, wow this pencil is legendary, for smaller studies on A4/A3 paper its awesome. It gives smooth lines and perfectly pressure sensitive medium. I use thin paper(for ink n wash) for such sketches. currently in love with prsima pencils.
