Of course I mention paper, (Everything from student bond to cheap copy paper) pencils, (Col-erase being my personal favorite though I also mention the popular Blackwing 602 and the classic Ticonderoga #2) lightboxes, (I have a LightTracer as well as a desk from – there’s also plenty of guides online about how to build your own) hole punches, (3-hole and Acme) pegbars, (3-hole and Acme again) scanners and automatic document feeders, (I use the Brother MFC-6490CW – here’s a step by step on how to set up the ADF to scan for optical registration)

pencil test software, (Digicel Flipbook, Toon Boom Pencil Check Pro, Monkeyjam, Toki Line Test) full animation software, (Flipbook again,
