For Colored Pencil Drawings

For the sketch (and pure pencil drawings) I use Faber-Castell pencils. I live in Germany and because they are a famous german brand everyone seems to use these pencils here.

Prismacolor Premier are my colored pencils of choice. They are high-quality pencils, but a tad cheaper than the Faber-Castell Polychromos many people use.

A professional sharpener like the Dahle 133 makes sharpening your pencils faster and cleaner.

For Pen And Ink Drawings

For black and white drawings I like to use Sakura brush pens. They offer good control over the thickness of the stroke. I combine that with Sakura Pigma Micron pens which come in various sizes and are good for crosshatching and thinner lines. Finally, I use Edding permanent markers, if I have large areas I want to fill with black quickly.

For Digital Art

Digital art doesn’t require many tools. Apart from your computer, you basically just need a graphic tablet. For this, I’ve been using the Intuos Pro M (PTH650) for the last few years. I think it’s one of the most used tablets ever. There are newer versions nowadays, like the PTH660. Either is fine, though.

For Video Recording

For video recording, your smartphone is good enough at the beginning. I use my Samsung Galaxy S10e. Good lighting enhances the image quality a lot: For this, I use the Walimex Daylight 250 set. My microphone is the Zoom H2. It’s actually a mic to record a whole room (a music band, for example). But it works alright for voice recording, too. I’m looking to upgrade that sooner or later, though.
