This is a very talked topic when people are drawing or painting. A lot of people ask me what kind of materials and supplies I use to make my art. I sponsor my own art supplies and it is hard to get quality items. As a student, you use what you can get. So birthdays and holidays are my go-to place. Luckily I found a lot of different shops where I can find great art supplies. Some are a bit more expensive, but sadly, not all come cheap. For my acrylic paintings, I use a quite cheap acrylic from a known cheap store called "Action". I use a pouring medium to mix with my acrylic paint to create a pouring paint. I have a lot of acrylic supplies so I can paint whenever I want to. On the other hand, my watercolour paint is a much more expensive brand, because they give a more beautiful look than cheap ones. So I don't always have enough supplies to make a watercolour painting. For my sketches, I use very little supplies, so I choose pencils of the highest quality so they don't break so easily. I use the H2 pencil all the way to B6 pencil to draw and with a very clean eraser, I have all I need to draw. What do you guys use? I don't use crayons to draw. do any of you use them?

I think that a lot of people can relate to this. When I started drawing I underestimated the importance of shading. I used to draw a lot of manga and used the typical shading technique that you see with the old style of anime. Animes like Pokemon. The ones where there are little differences in colour to show the shading. Not realistic at all, but I wanted to make more and more realistic drawings, but failed miserably. After years of experimenting, I learned that shading comes when you draw the textures. They are all the shading you need. You can see that with my sketches. I didn't do any shading, but I recreated the texture of the wings on the insect or the fur on the dogs. Should I make a video or tutorial on drawing shades with textures? What do you guys do to make shading on a drawing? I didn't make this drawing, but it shows the different textures that you can use.

What do you do to get inspired? What inspires you to create new art? Are there times that you don't know what to create? It is something that struggles with a lot. I don't know if a lot of people have that too? I didn't know what to do to get more creative and the more I tried the more it didn't work for me. Finally, I found something that could inspire me to be more creative. I found an app where every day a new subject was announced. I don't have to make an art piece every day, but it helps to start a creative day off or to get started again after some time. I even found a way to create more fantasy creatures. I really like this idea that I got from Youtube. All you need to do is to write down a few different animals on little pieces of paper. You hustle them together and pick 2 or 3 pieces. You have to create a creature that resembles those animals. I already make 2 different animals and I really like the first one I ever created. Should I post it?
