Acousticeg I was basically just going around picking up anything and drawing on it. Paper with lines on it mostly. lol Till someone said I need to get good paper and drawing pencils. That some of the drawings were good. I think it was my daughter that got me my first drawing pad and pencils.This drawing is from that first pad. I've tried several brands since then. Daler-Rownry 12"x 9", Mead Academie 11"x 14" and Bienfang 11"x14" The last being my favorite so far. Not to smooth not to rough. And I find I like the 11"x 14" size. +1

OliVBee the tooth of your paper is the key with pencil ! if the paper doesn't have enough tooth then you won't be able to apply layers after layers (especially for color pencils but this applies also to graphite) ... a smooth paper (usually hot pressed) can have a nice tooth too (my fav is Arches and i love it). Different graininess and texture for different kind of result ... i'll post some so you can see what i mean :) +0
