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

Happy works...

I couldn't live without my erasers.


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

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

first tool: brain
second tool: paper and pencil

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

What do you think about the kerning ?

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