Drawing Supplies Erasers by J-Scott-Campbell Drawing Supplies Erasers by J-Scott-Campbell
The erasers I like to use. Since going straight to Digital Inks or "D'inks", I'd be dead in the water without my Sakura electric eraser especially. I'll often sharpen the eraser to a cornered edge against a table or rulers edge before attempting fine detailed work.

Opinions stated as facts are still opinions... anytime we have a bias it is better to ask questions to have a more educated decision... and our minds should never be made up... Mr. Campbell what do you see as the advantages of D inks?? Disadvantages?? Thanks

I can never find those eraser sticks or the electric eraser :< But I have a different electric eraser which I like a lot, but the refills only have 10 per pack =3=

I use the same eraser pencil~

Magic Rub are amazing. I managed to find a lot of over 30 for less than 10 bucks including shipping years ago. They were all misprints, but I don't care about the text being all over the place. :)

I can't see read the brand on the middle picture; I've never seen an eraser like that before, so now, naturally, I want one.

Sabhira Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
The brand is Tuff Stuff.
JinnyMcG Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
Ah, thanks! Looks like they sell them on the dickblick website.

Im interested in those pen erasers, where is it possible to get those? (online, no shops near me do them as I have looked)
Sabhira Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Try Amazon.
BLS-SDMF Featured By Owner May 19, 2010
Man...i really hate using those magic rub erasers, they don't erase that good. I use the staedtler erasers, good stuff.

HECK YEA, MAN. Bust up with the Electric eraser. It's so usefull
wrathofthetyrant Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2009
Been using Magic rub erasures for 14 years now & they rock! But how much are those electric erasers? Been wanting to get my grubby hands on one for awhile! lol BTW Mr. Campbell, your Art has been Rockin since the days of GEN-13! Keep up the awesomeness! :-)
JLCook Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009
The Sakura Electric Eraser goes for about $50. I know that's spendy but I've used the cheaper Helix (about $15) and they just stink. I've seen higher end electric erasers that are just not as good as the Sakura. It's light weight, fits nicely in your hand and the Spin is so fast that you get a clean erase quickly. You can purchase it here at Dick Blick:


Along with eraser refills.

You guys want to hear something funny? I bought Magic Rub erasers based on this image alone.

On a related note, I hear Staedler makes great erasers.

I love simple pictures like these. Its always helpful for artist to share their tricks of the trade. I'm still trying to master copic markers. :-)

whats the best erasers to use without the mess.
J-Estacado Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2008  Professional General Artist
ow; You CAN HELP ME !!
where do you find those eraser refill for the electric one?
I bought mine at a convention in the U.S; but they don't sell refill on their website :lol: and I canno found this type of material here in france, oh damnit, just one more to go :rofl:
JLCook Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009
I'm fortunate that here in the states I can find the refills at most art or craft supply stores. If that fails I recommend using Dick Blick Art Supply, they've been around forever and have everything. Here's a link to the Sakura Electric eraser and it's refills:


Make sure you don't mistake the INK erasers with the PENCIL erasers. While the ink erasers will erase pencil they are hard and rubbery and will tear up your paper pretty good.
J-Estacado Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009  Professional General Artist
oh man , thanks for caring, that's cool it's been monthes I have 0 eraser now :lol:

I don't own that model, but I guess eraser size would be equal ; if not... I know what to do.

thanks a lot for the link in any cases :)

You should be a photographer J, this little photo set here has racked in 35 :+fav:s :D Must be the lighting effects.
Nycteridae Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2008
I've used the magic rub erasers in the past but found that they have a lot of "debris" and after a drawing session, I'd usually end up with several little piles of gray eraser refuse. I'm now hooked on the gray rubber erasers (zero debris, yay!). They get dirty very fast though, that's the only downside, so I go through two or three a month.

Thanks for the tip on electric erasers, I'm curious to check them out now.

¥eah...gonna get one. <3

Gonna emulate J. Scott Campbell. <33
mattroper Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2008
Yeah, I like using those tuff stuff eraser pens too. Their great.

I'll actually cut a little sliver off the tip with an exacto blade for a sharp edge. -I'm too impatient too erase it down flat. Haha. But it works pretty good.
MissGoldenWeek Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2008
this is the first time I've heard of electric erasers :O
Sketchlogic Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2008
That Sakura eraser is the most powerful 'small' battery operated electric eraser known to man. It is a MUST buy for any serious visual artist.
beaux-artworx Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008  Professional General Artist
THanks for sharing...i should get my hands on those electric erasers.
I have an eraser stick pen that is great! but i guess its time for an upgrade... :D
ArtisticSchmidt Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008  Professional General Artist
I use that same Tuff Stuff stick eraser! Great for small details.
CrackAttackKid Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2008
btw the electric eraser works by spinning really fast so you just put it on a pencil spot and it cleans it up without having to do the back and forth motion of a typical eraser. It's great for eliminating those pesky small mess ups.
J-Scott-Campbell Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2008
Exactly! Great job explaining that, why couldn't I have put it that way. ;)
CrackAttackKid Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2008
Everyone should own a sakura electric eraser if you draw mine has lasted me 9 years so far and still going strong.
JericaWinters Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2008
Didn't know those existed...
angiepk Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looks interesting. Might have to look into getting one of those electric doohickys. :)
a1984niceguy Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Oih, where is this world going?
Splotchy77 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008
Man, I can't Live without my Tuff Stuff eraser. Lost the top to one a while back, and jsut went out and bought a new one. They're about 3 something each at the Art store I go to, and the refills are about 1 buck and some change for 2 a pack. Bought about 3-4 packs last time....still have several left.
ResidentSamurai357 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008
lolz.. seems like the tough stuff eraser is the shiet.. everyone I know uses it, I introduced my professor that same eraser and now the whole school sports it! =P Great tool!
Axigan Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008  Professional General Artist
Heeey, you mention Digital Inks... I was kind of bashed about it from Tim Townsend a month ago when I mentioned it, so now im intriged again.

Do you ink digitally? if not, what's your though about inking digitally.

I personally feel people can achieve excelent results actually, but not every paint program can handle the tools very well, the only program that seems to do it really well (almost natural) is manga studio.

BTW:... im a big fan (damn it, the nerd inside had to come out)
NORVANDELL Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
The middle pic, I can't find those anywhere anymore. Where did you get/order yours?.
