Here is where you will be able to reference all the supplies and websites I use in my posts. All are recommended as good resources.
Figment.com: This website is wonderful for writers trying to receive feedback on their work! The community is unlike any other website.
Prismacolor Colored Pencils: For blending and vibrant color, there is no other brand I would recommend than Prismacolor! Though the price is high, they last for years if properly taken care of.
Strathmore Drawing Paper: Not just the drawing paper, but the watercolor, canvas, and sketch pads as well! Strathmore is by far the best brand that I have found. The quality of the paper is like no other!
