For me the difficult task in illustration is making rough sketches. My best time for Sketching is morning hours. Pencil and Eraser are my best friends. Scribbling...Scribbling...Scribbling...without much attention to details. Almost careless light and dark pencil lines till I get the correct anotomy of my sketches. When Iam happy with my drawings then I switch over to inking.
The following drawing tools I use for sketching and inking:

(1) HB pencil
(2) Non - dust eraser
(3) Crowquill nibs
(4) Camel Waterproof Drawing Ink 07 ( 07 is product code. Qty 20ml. Cost 13 INR).
(5) No.2 Brush for filling dark loops in drawing like hair and shades.
Qty-20 ml is sufficient for me to ink plenty of drawings. Fortunately this ink available in all stationary shops nearby me.

All imaginary light and dark lines of my sketches will have their perfect details during inking process. Till that time it is difficult to assume viewers what pose is it exactly. When I finished with inking I will let my sketch to dry say about 5 minutes. Then my daughter will assist me to erase all pencil lines.
The Final process is scaning. I normally scan all my black and white drawings at 300 dpi and save them in Tiff format in photoshop.
