I own a ton of markers, pencils, brushes and pens. It was my thought process that I should use my own materials as a source for the art that I will create. Yes it is easier to just find images online but there's no guarantee that I will find the exact marker/pencil I am looking for and it may just be easier to spend a few hours taking photos of my own elements!
I used my desk with a large Bristol sheet and my Canon T3i to take the pictures. I created an Action in Adobe Photoshop so I could scale down and clean the lighting a bit on the 194 photos I took!
Some images are repeated, I rather have too many photos than not enough.
