-stuff in my pencil case- by oomizuao -stuff in my pencil case- by oomizuao
Yup, here are the main tools I use for traditional drawing, and that have been given a very special place in my main pencil case, the one I bring with me pretty much everywhere.

From left to right:

- Pilot Color Eno 0.7 red leads: these are for the red mechanical pencil.
- Pilot Color Eno 0.7 soft-grip pencil: I've started sketching with red instead of blue now, as I found out that this type of red lead that Pilot makes is very close to the color magenta, and is super easy to remove from the paper when you scan it to photoshop. Way easier than blue leads!
- Staedtler Mars Plastic eraser pen: I use this as my eraser, as I usually erase details instead of large areas, and this thing is perfect for the job. I don't have the refills in this photo, because I don't keep them in my pencil case (they'd just get dirty in there :p )
- Copic Multiliners SP, sizes BS (brush), 0.1, 0.2 and 0.35: These are for lineart, but sadly they're very sensitive to leads or pencils that have clay in them, like colored leads or colored pencils.. So these pens work best on a clean piece of paper, or on top of an already colored paper. These work well with copic markers and watercolors.
Pilot Eno 2B 0.5 leads: regular gray leads for mechanical pencils.
chewed-on, old Pilot pencil, 0.5 sized: My favorite pencil. I've had this one for years! I use the red Pilot Color Eno one more though..
Pilot Color Eno 0.7 soft-blue leads: The light blue leads I used for years. Haven't completely abandoned them yet, probably because I've still got 3 boxes with these cartridges... o__o
Pilot 0.7: I don't know what else this blue mechanical pencil is called, but it's fantastic to draw with!
Neopiko-4 deleter watercolor brush, black: this one's not waterproof, but it's bleedproof and dries instantly, so it's a wonderful brush-pen for line art, and you can do really fine details with it as well...!
Sakura Pigma Micron, 01 and 005: these are my new favorite pens for line art. They dry fast, can be erased over without loosing much ink, doesn't smear, are waterproof, and just very good pens in general.
Pilot Drawing Pen DR pigment ink, 0.1 and 0.2: these are as good as the Sakura pens, perhaps even better, if it hadn't been for the fact that they empty fast and the nibs can't handle too much pressure..
Staedtler pigment liner 0.5: I use this one for comic panel borders :)
Pilot Super Grip 0.5: same one as the old, chewed on pilot pencil, only new and not chewed on. Very good pencils..!
Pilot Super Grip F: my number one type of ballpoint pens, that I use to write down ideas for "SPIKE" with. They're also really good ballpoint pens to draw with!
