A lot of folks link to this article, but it's actually been integrated into the lesson material itself as Page 4 of Lesson 0, along with a detailed video explaining our thinking. So, be sure to head on there to see our explanation as to why we feel approaching our work for this course in ink, rather than digitally or in pencil, is especially beneficial.

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website.

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
