Art Supplies I use:

    Any mechanical with HB lead (with .3 or .5 for the best lead for clean lines)

Kohnioor Rapidographs are best for quality inking.
Sakura Micron Pigma (.02, .03, .05 and .08)- the drawback with these pens is that while disposable and much cheaper ($2- 3 per pen), the ink is easily faded with erasing if you ink over a pencil drawing. This is why I finally went to tech pens.

Copic Sketch Markers Though initially expensive, they are refillable. One refill bottle costs the same as the initial pen, but will refill the pen 10 times over. It's very similar to watercolor in how it applies and mixes.

Strathmore Bristol SMOOTH, 300 or 400 lbs.
Canson Sketch book, spiral bound for scribbling
Bond or Marker paper for smooth pencil drawings
generic white comp printer/copier paper for sketching
    Sakura Koi watercolor (best watercolors you can get in tubes)
Photoshop 7, CS4
