my caricature gear

I know I posted some of these before, but this is what I bring with me on my caricature gigs and use in the studio.  I don't usually bring all of these to every caricature gig I go to, but I do if I am expected to do colour caricatures:

Copic markers.  A fair bit of the grey markers here are from years ago (~2004), the rest are from last year and this year.  Mostly greyscale and skintone markers.  The paper that is stuffed in the case is the swatch list.

Normal pens, fineliner pens (every size from 0.05 mm - 0.8 mm), ink brush pen, permanent marker, blue colour pencils for drawing, waterbrushes, eraser, ruler, sharpener...usual stuff i guess.

Some Copic ink refills, Copic Sketch and Copic Ciao markers (I bought them because I wanted to know what the difference is between them and the original square Copic markers, turns out it's just size and brush nib), Letraset markers, Shinhan markers (btw, if you live in Singapore and have some empty Copic markers, you can trade them in at Overjoyed to get discount on Shinhan markers.  That's what I did.), white permanent marker.  Also you see part of my bunny at in the background.  I bought it only because I drew my cartoon self with one in this pic. lol.

Individually-bought colour pencils and blenders. 

My trusty Colleen colour pencils. Whee! These are for when I need colours that I don't have in Copic, because Copic markers are expensive, you know :/...
