    Although not compulsary a stylus pen with a rubber tip will be really useful. Drawing with a stylus pen is a little more acurate than using your finger. Pens vary in price starting below £1 and rising into tens of £££s. A simple cheap stylus would be fine but in case you are wondering I use a Wacom Bamboo Solo Stylus.
