I posted my information in the Beginners forum if you want some backgroud on me...
Today I picked up my first set of supplies to start my adventure with drawing and sketching. Super Stoked!!! Nothing expensive just a few things to get me going.. I am sure I will develop a preference. The shopping list included: a small sketch pad, a large drawing pad, a set of pencil with varying hardness (graphite), erasers (Kneaded and white Vinyl), a sharpener, and a drawing book for absolute beginners.
I went for a date right after so I haven't had time to crack in to it all but it will be waiting for me after work tomorrow!!
