I'd use my canson sketchbook if I could-- it's just way easier to throw away drawings when I really don't want anyone to see or ask about what's in the super large sketchbook I have hidden away.

Need to fill my door lock with gorilla glue so people stop coming in without warning. I miss trad dammit!

Interesting anon, are you saying you are mainly drawing things that you feel ashamed of in your sketchbook?

These are both my most recent.

Picrel is the kind of stuff from my pre-/beg/ sketchbook, before I even knew what a fundie was. Bad enough to make me cringe but I saved every last work from it before I burned it, since it got discovered without my consent.

Also ty for your contribution to my folder of pepes.

Thank you kindly, my good sir for both the complement and the rare pepe. Here is my latest ink-piece if you were curious as to how my trad's improved since those pics-- imo nothing soothes the soul like drawing with ink or pencil.

As a former and current ink chad as well, I wholy agree with that, nothing quite like inking a page, I haven't found that same feeling in digital

With the amount of crap a churn through, this really is the only reasonable answer. Cheap and you get a shit ton of paper and I never get frozen with anxiety trying to make sure every drawing I do is *worthy* of being in my sketchbook.

I mean, think what you will, but I'm at least old enough to drink. I don't owe you guys any further information than that.

I just like drawing. Simple as.


Ty ty. And yeah, there are lots of things you can do with digital you can't do on trad and vice-versa, but I feel comfort in the tensile-ness of putting a utensil to paper.

Ironically, I want a bigger drawing tablet since the small intuos is kinda puny, but I'm likely going to wait until I have a solid income. Or hopefully, by then, enough people will have moved out that I can have a better place to draw.

Canson is good. I personally prefer Strathmore, but I'd be delighted to receive either. Recently I've had a taste of fancy expensive paper, and boy that was a fucking mistake. Long story short I'm on a promotion track at work now. It's not like you can never go back, but you'll be resentful if you do.

>> No.6161299

That one in specific is just paper, not a sketchbook.
They do sell sketchbooks as well.

protip: you can use the holes to create texture by brushing the paper with the side of the pencil.

protip: with a very sharp pencil, you can on the surface as if the holes don't exists

>> No.6163868

it's not very heavy though, it's 160 gsm. the real answer is that it's on there because basis weight means nothing if you don't know the size of the sheets the paper was cut from, making it a great opportunity for impressive sounding bullshit on the packaging. manufacturers love that kind of shit.

>> No.6165180

this is THE paper to learn ink work on, you could do basic watercolor on it too, I have spilled drinks on this shit before and it barely warps, granted it doesn't take water like nice cotton paper.

>> No.6165184

get a thin piece of wood, an old clipboard/sketing board would work just fine

get this shit

and then get whatever paper you want in bulk

you want to just work with pencils and this is a sketch pad to learn not a paper for a masterpiece, get the bulk watercolor paper on amazon that's cheap as fuck, or get newsprint.

you want something mixed media, get a nice thick paper

you want good watercolor paper, get good watercolor paper and glue it in.

I am a huge advocate of making your own shit especially when crap like this is just overpriced for what it is.

>> No.6165190

unless you buy no name shit, weight has a general meaning that's standardish

I have never bought a 20lbs paper and thought that this feels really thin, outside the time I bought complete no name shit, no matter the paper, the weight more or less means the same thing across the board.

>> No.6165196

I use Canson 8.5x11 hardcover since I like the paper and the cover doesn't fall off like other brands.

Nah man, just looking at the pads of bristol I've got sitting around:
>canson 100lb, 225gsm
>canson xl, 96lb, 260gsm
>bienfang 146lb, 238gsm
Basis weight isn't based on the final sheets you get, it's based on the uncut stock, so unless you know how big those sheets were, it's useless. Office paper this isn't a problem, it's all normalized to a few sizes and well labeled.
With art paper it's a complete crapshoot.
