Just a little shot of my work table next to my illustration board. These are some of the tools that make the Becksmann magic happen.
Pens I use Micron pens from sizes .005 to .03 (I really need a .05, but all in good time). Pencils I use Derwent technical pencils for most the initial rough sketches and .05 and .07 mechanical pencils with HB graphite for the pre-inked final outlines. Lower right you’ll see a straight-razor. This isn’t to cut my arms after I run out of money to pay my bills as an illustrator, this is to sharpen pencils. Amish style.
Also, not shown, are my lightbox (thank you whoever invented this wonderful tool), various B graphite large pencils, brushes of various sizes, Higgins ink and Pro-white for mistakes.
