Emilie, I think that the best tool is: the brain...

Happy works...

But Paco is right.
"Think with your brain." TM

(Hey, is it cool that the image looks tilted or what.)

I enjoy sketching with an H pencil on butter paper. For a fihished sketch I usually use a sharp 6H pencil.

Don't forget the CNS and an endocrine system for flavor. A brain by itself won't help much. Skin is good
