    Stylus as in DS or iPhone/Android/iDevice?

    Gamestop/EB Games for DS/3DS
    BestBuy/Future Shop/The Source for iDevice/ android
    coming to think of it, either device/console can be purchased from those stores

    You can also use Kijiji or craigslist if you want to buy Second hand

    Capacitive is the kind of thing that needs specific styli or fingers or something.

    And they don't exist, sorry OP. Capacitive touch screens aren't sensitive enough to actually work with a finer tip. There's the Jot Pro stylus but that thing's like $100 which is fucking ridiculous.

    Capacative. As in not the kind in the 3DS.


    Also, the Jot Pro is an option. But contrary as to what's stated above, it's much cheaper than $100

    The Verge has a very impressive write-up on different styli for capacitive screens. (They say iPad but they should work fine with other devices)

    Take a look at it here. - http://www.theverge.com/2012/4/10/2925937/best-stylus-ipad-review

    Looking at it now. The damn thing is BEAUTIFUL (from an artist's POV)! I wish there was a tutorial for a finer point stylus. Seen a few tutorials and hell the tip of a AAA battery is tiny enough but I'm going to do more research.

    Or even the post itself, as the word capacitive was in the message body, too!
