@tbloxham Not sure about Arteza (couldn't find this in a few minutes of searching, maybe I'm not looking deep enough), but other brands like Prismacolor will certainly let you buy specific colors one at a time instead of in a set.
(Scroll down past the sets here and it'll let you order any color you want individually, with a bit of discount if you order more than 12 of a color)https://www.dickblick.com/products/prismacolor-premier-colored-pencils/

@tbloxham I don't have direct experience with Arteza, but Prismacolor might behave differently than you'd expect. There's a waxy/oily quality to their pencils that fill the tooth of the paper with more pressure. The vibrancy is there with a lighter touch, and depending on the tooth you might not need more pressure, but if you do apply more pressure the material gets that oily quality that really sticks out compared to some other brands. I tend to not use their black colored pencil and instead use the 90% cool or warm grey colors if I want to get that dark. Since you're going for that cartoon/anime style the black will probably suit you quite well. I'm looking forward to see what you come up with, I've always loved using my Prismacolors.

Any advice/resources for someone looking to transition from pencil and paper to digital? I only ever really do greyscale sketches so my grasp of colour is... not great. And I'm basically at a loss for how to appropriately translate my current drawing techniques (in terms of shading and such) to a tablet and digital canvas. My focus is just on characters for now.
I have a monoprice tablet and a copy of Photoshop CS4. Though if there's any nicer (free) software geared towards drawing I'll gladly take a look at it.

Does anyone know if we have a thread anywhere on any of the forums for stuff like "I'm teaching myself unity and what the hell am I doing?"

Question for you digital artists out there!
What brush 'type' would you recommend a beginner start out with to get the basics down? There are.... a lot of options. A LOT of options. My art thread demonstrates my complete inability to pick one and stick with it. I need to practice super basic blocking and shading, I think.
