Do I need professional equipment to become pro at drawing?

Do I need professional equipment to become pro at drawing?

See, my friend got these VERY expensive artist pens to draw manga with, and well, I'm kind of jealous :/ and her drawing is brilliant now, and even though i am still really happy for her, i still feel a little jealous . But my main question is, do i need professional pens and things like that to become a good manga artist?

No. For the shades and colors, yes, you'd need like.. These $1000 markers (my cousin owns markers like that) but really, you don't need good equipment to be a talented drawer. Just saying.

It not about the brand or how expensive your art supplies is. Its all about the technique and what you know how to do. Also its in human nature to be jealous. Don't let it get to you to bad and just practice!

No. It's okay if your jelly. Somebody at my grandma's work draws manga and homestuck really well and all she uses is a number two pencil and a pen.

I dont think so because when you draw its not what your drwing with its what you are drawing, and how you feel about it..

Well. When this year started I thought of that too cause my friend was showing off her marker pens, so I bought a 20 cased pro brishable marker pens for $49.99 (plus tax) and I made beautiful drawings and my friend was jealous and made a fight so I suggest just deal with the pain, and no u don't need, all you need is imagination.
