I'm sure I read somewhere that Feng Zhu does all his stuff digitally?

Could be wrong mind you.

I'm not sure what country you're from, but here are some sites for U.S. companies. (I work there )

Also, I'm not sure if you're familiar with what art supplies you're looking for, but there have been a few recent threads here on CGTalk in the past week.

Yup, digital, see here.


1. Yes, for the past 2 years, Iíve worked exclusively in digital; no paper at all. I find digital to be much faster, simply because of the undo button. It allows me to experiment with new shapes, without worrying about messing anything up. My approach has changed slightly. I no longer do a lot of thumbnails before starting. Now I just start sketching, and refine the design as I go. Again, all because of the undo function.

Edit: I don't personally think it's important what he uses, it's the artist not some sort of "magic paper" , if I had Jimi Hendrix' vintage strat and Marshall stack and he swapped me for my crappy 10w practice amp and 80s Ibanez he'd still sound better..

Feng used to use markers etc, but nnow he has moved to fully digital, more than likely for ease!

As for UK supplies, I can't find any real good ones at all. Ward Graphics, and Details are pretty neat, but finding a store is a pain. I would just order online if I wer you dude.

But, as stated, I don't think it matters too much what you use, if you can draw well, then you can do it with a Bic!
