koh i noor polycolor


Koh-I-Noor Polycolor monochrome set of coloured pencils.
I have the Lyra Rembrandt monochromatic set of colored pencils, and it is great to use. I want to add more grey hues to my set. Hopefully this will add to that set, and broaden what is possible.

Küelox Woodless Charcoal Pencils (soft)
I like woodless pencils of all types. Woodless charcoal pencils are rare. It is not that those do not exist, but that only a few companies make such a pencil. Charcoals are always different from company to company, and some are worth it and others are pure garbage. I hope these are not garbage. I know I will get a different tone from these compared against the other such pencils I own. As for Küelox they are a Chinese stationary & art supply company. I found a few woodless pencil ‘manga’ sets. This is one of those sets. I am curious what a straight Chinese company offers for a product since some of it is already made in China.

Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Aquarelle sticks lemon yellow
Building a palette of these to go with the matching pencil set. Just like I am doing with Prismacolor Premier colored pencils and artstix.

10th February 2016 - 41/366

I haven’t done much history revision since the weekend because there is a billion things I have to get done before leaving for my 9 days visit of my boyfriend in Denmark on Friday. Today, filled out college applications (there is still over a month left if I want to apply to more programmes), did regular homework and then went through a chapter on early medieval society. 

I find that if I write (messy) notes as I read and then re-write them in a nicer way, I remember things better. 

Also, I finally got some use out of my beautiful new KOH-I-NOOR Hardtmuth Polycolor pencils. There’s a KOH-I-NOOR brand shop across from my school and I cannot resist buying a few pencils every now and then. #BudweisProblems

madebyflou  asked:

wow, keep up the good work! what tools do you use?

Thank you madebyflou!

My tools:
I use the coloured pencil (1 - Koh-I-Noor Polycolor) or the big lead one (3 - Koh-I-Noor Versatile) for blocking out and the regular pencil (2 - Staedtler Mars Lumograph) for tighter stuff. When inking it varies what I go for, but generally it’s the brush (4 - Raphael 8408), nib (5 - Gillott 303) and the brush pen (6 - Pentel Pocket Brush). Most colouring I do digitally (7 - Cintiq 24HD. Long time super fan of the good old Intous 3, however it messed up my shoulder not meeting a good height at my desk), but use coloured ink from time to time.

I prefer Talons or Pelican drawing ink, mostly using Canson or Letraset Bristol Board.
