Spartaweaselcus the Hoplite
For years I pencilled on watercolor paper because I rendered with watercolor. With my switch to digital coloring I am no longer chained to drawing on that inferior surface.
I’ve recently been experimenting with all kinds of paper to do my pencil work on. I love bristol but it’s a bit pricey. Brother Doug uses laser copy paper. I tried some of that. Not bad. The other day I was killing time in Staples and noticed they had a 32 pound laser paper that’s 25% cotton. It comes in white and ivory (looks yellow to me). I bought a package of the ivory and I really like the feel of it. This hoplite was my first experiment using it.
