Precise-V5-pens

hello! I know a lot of people are looking for cheaper alternatives to common stationery that is hyped a lot in the studyblr community. as a certified stationery addict, I gotchu! here’s some of my fave stationery items that you can find for decent prices in the usa.

**some of these pens are pretty inexpensive on amazon and come with prime shipping. I’ve never seen them in stores, but your mileage may vary.

black pens: best value is bolded; faves are italicized

pentel energel 0.5mm needle point - one of my favorite pens for note-taking. the inkflow is super smooth and the ink doesn’t smear/smudge very easil. the pen bodies are pretty pricey, but you can buy two refills for $2.29 - $2.69 (the price varies based on store). the refills will fit into standard gel pens such as the pilot g2. 

pilot g2 0.5mm - I’ve seen a pack of 12 for about $13 at staples, which should last you the whole school year. the ink flow is smooth and they smudge a lot less than the 0.7mm version. 

pilot g2 0.38mm - due to the smaller tip size, there’s less smearing with these pens, and they’re still pretty smooth. you can buy a pack of 12 for about $15 at staples. 

pilot precise v5 rollerball - these pens are super smooth and you can find them at a variety of stores at pretty good prices. because they’re rollerballs, the ink tends to be a bit thin/drippy and you might get a tiny bit of feathering, but personally I don’t really mind that and i still use them. I’ve seen a pack of 2 at target and rite aid for about $2. 

zebra sarasa 0.5 (non push clip) - these pens aren’t as smooth as the push clip version but they’re available at staples for about $15 for 12. 

bic ballpoint pens - they’re super cheap (about $1 for 12 at target or rite aid during back to school sales) and pretty smooth. although I can only find them in 0.7mm and 1.0mm tip sizes, which aren’t great for my small handwriting, they’re really not bad pens, especially considering the price. they also don’t smudge at all when highlighted! 

colored pens

zebra sarasa 0.5 (push clip) - i love these pens so much. they never skip, bleed, or feather and barely smear. you can find a pack of 10 for $9 which is great !!! value !!! on amazon prime. (you can’t really find these in stores, unfortunately.)

pilot juice 0.38 - probably my all time favorite colored pens. they’re super similar to the zebra sarasa, but they’re even smoother to write with. you can find them on amazon for about $13 for 12 pens. 

binder paper and notebooks:

tbh expensive paper is… really expensive, especially rhodia, moleskine, and leuchtturm notebooks. i just use generic binder paper and spiral notebooks for class notes.

my bullet journal is an essentials a5 grid notebook, which is about $11 on amazon. it’s a great dupe for the moleskine and leuchtturm notebooks for almost half the price, and i really like it.

sticky notes:

post it brand sticky notes are actually super expensive. a pack of 3 can be almost $8 at staples or office max. usually, i buy generic sticky notes from target or a dollar store. 

that’s about all i have! i hope you found this helpful! if you’d like, you can check out my tumblr and studygram for more helpful posts :)

“The Kiss” by @theriverscribe
Ink:
Pilot Precise V5 pen, Sharpie (whatever ink I have left…)

One man
sold his soul
to further the cause
and sealed it
with a kiss.
One demon
took the soul
and The Kiss
and gave him
more than
the man
bargained for.

“The Law” by @theriverscribe
Ink: 
Pilot Precise V5 pen
Inktober:  Urban Fantasy:  Day 23

Two wayward women
in a world of men.
They are strong,
and soft.
They are courageous,
and compassionate.
The Law carry badges
and guns
and authority.
Heroes and monsters
both submit
in their presence.
They make the world
safer
for innocents
and go home
at night
to the orphaned
girls they call
daughters.

Is it just me,

or do all these “studyblr” and “Studyspo” blogs say the same exact things over and over again and get 5 million notes (from people who are procrastinating on Tumblr learning how to study rather than actually studying…).

Let’s see if I can do it too…

Use colors! Color code everything!

Underline everything!

Highlight everything!

Get organized!

Use tabs and calendars and everything you can possibly find at Office Depo that is colorful and office-supply ish!

Make a schedule!

Take breaks!

Use great pens! (And they HAVE to be Stabilo or Pilot V5 Precise or Sharpie pens or Bic throwaways or whatever…)

Write EVERYTHING in a notebook (which of course HAS to be a Moleskine or a Composition book or a Lisa Frank College Ruled Spiral bound or a Trapper Keeper with loose leaf wide ruled paper)!

Don’t write ANYTHING down! Put everything on your laptop/iPad/tablet with Evernote/Skitch/Quizlet/Penultimate / Notability/Papyrus.

Don’t read anything! Watch all the videos!

Don’t waste your time with videos! Read every line of your textbook!

Study early in the morning!

Study late at night!

Study all day!

Study in short spurts!

Use flashcards for everything!

Don’t waste your time with flashcards, make flow charts and posters!

Eat healthy!

Get lots of sleep!

Exercise!

Listen to music!

Cut out all distractions like music and internet!

Drink tons of coffee! 

Avoid caffeine!

Make checklists!

Use the Cornell method / Pomodoro method / Feynman Method!

Make study guides!

Is that enough? I guess so. Guys, don’t waste half your study time trying a million different study methods. Use what has produced good results for you in the past. Change what hasn’t.

I didn’t intend to ink these, yet here we are. 8|

The Malachite Twins! This was supposed to be a composition sketch so that I could do some Watercolor Art, but LMAO THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN

I’m supposed to be trying to work on my animation and painting skills, but I somehow miraculously improved my manga style inking. (Which is somethig I’ve always been super insecure about XD)

Red Pencil Lead + Pilot Precise V5 pen

So I’ve gotten a fair amount of questions regarding what sort of supplies I use & to be honest the list is way bigger than I could show in one picture & I’m always experimenting with new tools, but these are a lot of tried and true staples for me.

1. XL Mix Media Canson Sketchbook. This is most economical sketchbook without sacrificing much for quality. It can handle inking and watercolor as long as it isn’t too heavy. The paper is a super pure white, which is nice, but can kinda give you some trouble if you’re trying to erase I would probably prefer a watercolor books, but those are more expensive for many less pages so I generally save those for finished works and commissions. I use Strethmore Watercolor books or large scale, high quality water color paper. Once again, I really just like experimenting with different kinds. 

2. 500 Series Strathmore Soft Cover Mixed Media Sketchbook. The paper in this is really great, thick, easy to erase on and durable. The whole book is very durable and for others like it is relatively inexpensive. 

3. Pilot Precise V5 Rolling Ball Pen. I’ve recently started to really appreciate the simplicity of roller pens for sketching and gentle lining.

4. Various lining pens. Copic Multiliners. Micron Archival Ink. Sharpie Pens. I rotate through and use these all for various methods. Honestly I’ve always preferred the Sharpie Pens fine & extra fine, they have a lasting amount of ink and the tips are much more durable than the Microns or Copics. I use Sharpies for general outlining and any thicker lines. These are especially useful when lining over another media. The Microns & Copics are good for fine details & smaller drawings.

5. Staedtler earaser. I always lose block or kneadable erasers, but somehow never lose these. They’re also much better for erasing in more specific areas than blocks.

6. Prismacolor Col-Erase Pencils. Light Blue & Carmine Red. These are great for using non-photo color sketching. 

7. Kuretake Waterbrush Pens. I’ve taken to using these more than cup & brush, they have more stable tips that reform easily & they’re super great for on the go watercolor/inking. I also have some piston waterbrushes, but the Kuretake have nicer tips. I still use cup & brush but don’t really have any specific brands/types I use.

8. Faber-Castell artist pen brushes. These are good for thicker, more calligraphic lines & blacking out small areas. 

9. Lamy Scribble Mechanical Pencil. My dad got this as a gift for me a couple years ago and I really love it, there are specific leads you can buy for it that work really well for sketching.

10. Bic Wite-Out Shake'n Squeeze Pen. This started out as a cheesy method to make highlights and whites & has remained one of the most reliable methods for this. I’ve been using a Pen-touch Fine Point paint marker as of recently and that’s been working well too.

11. Grumbacher Deluxe Watercolors. I’ve been using these for years and years. They last a long time and I really prefer pan watercolor to tube mostly for transportation and conservation. I’ve honestly only bought two of these since I started the Year of the Monster & that’s only to replace a couple colors. 

12. Copic Markers. I’ve used a lot of different markers & there really isn’t a replacement for these. 

Besides the listed ones I also color in photoshop and dabble in colored pencils and a lot of other blacking markers and inks.

Now that I actually have some color and content in my bullet journal, I wanted to post some pictures. It’s still a work in progress; I ordered some new pens a few days ago and I think I’m gonna start color coding my classwork once they come in. I’m really proud of what I have so far though!

I’m using a large squared Moleskine journal and Pilot Precise V5 pens.

anonymous asked:

What type of pencil you usually use to draw? I'm a big fan of you, your art it's fantastic, always waiting for more.

colored pencils: Prismacolor. Definitely my personal favorite brand of colored pencils.

graphite pencil: whatever I find on the ground, or else just a cheap 0.7 mechanical pencil.

pen: Precise V5 Rolling Ball pens, which are also surprisingly easy to find on the ground.

charcoal: General’s Charcoal Pencils. Not too many of these lying on the ground, but suitable replacements can typically be crafted after setting something on fire.
