    Well, if your very desperate for some pens, here are some
    http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Dippin...4329868&sr=8-3
    Amazon does ship to NZ.


    instructions on making dipping pens http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Dip-Pen
    (I love making my own tools)

    However, there are other means to create the same look
    Have you tried using a regular old drawing pen? You can get really close to the same look.
    How about bamboo brushes? There a little hard to use at first, but you can get used to them.
    Im sure you can get dipping pens at any arts/craft store.

    I don't mean to sound drilling, but I just want to give you all your options Because you could get dip pens and find out you don't even like using that medium. It's a good idea to find something you like to use but is easily accessible. But then again, I don't know if you have used dip pens before. From personal experience, I can say that pens are much more of a friend than pure ink. I've gone over stuff in ink just to have it make a slight splatter, ruining the piece. Pens are much more friendly and you can get the same look.

    D&T is the Drawing, Tutorial & Animation section of this forum. Questions that are art related should be in here not the General Discussion. Anyways, welcome to Manga Tutorials! Please don't post one after another in a short space of time. If you need to add anything, use the Edit button on your post. It's there for a reason. C:

    To be honest, You don't really need complete materials in order to draw a very good lines and stuffs... you only probably need pointing pens and markers with different thickness..
    how you handle it just depends on your strokes.
    You can anyway Edit it when you scan it.

    Don't think that you can draw good if you have good materials.
    Just don't spend too much money on it.

    Good Camera might be good enough.. though you have to be really careful with angle of the camera.

    As for graphic programs, you can buy one or get one on the internet(if you don't live in US or any county that has ACTA or SOPA stuffs)
