hrmm... - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
i like printer paper better than sketchbook paper. ive come to realize that. dad got me this really nice sketchbook that has perferated pages so i can rip it out easily, but the paper causes my pencil marks to smear and smudge and its hard to work on any really detailed pics that way. the printer paper seems to hold the pencil better and doesnt smudge as easily. youd think that if you make a sketchbook thats supposed to be SKETCHED in, theyd make it with paper that didnt smudge so much, but paper thats not meant to really be sketched on holds the pencil better? ugh. people are dumb when it comes to the world of art supplies. i swear if it werent for my computer and dad's sensitivity to my art needs, id feel like i was using a rock and chisel. =P *my figure drawing teacher almost practically does..he uses only methods the renaissance artists use, like...natural clay/pastels =P *

yay! puppy's calling me! *the boyfriend, not the dog*

'Tis why I make my own sketchbooks. =P

Yeah, sketch paper really annoys me . . . anything that smudges annoys me, really. Bic mechanical pencils annoy me. =P I wish they'd make sketch paper . . . smoother. So the sketch is preserved instead of erased. =P

Ah well. printer paper is fine with me. Cheaper. =D

I have a sketchbook, but I literally haven't used it in years. (I had to buy it in college, but never used it once I graduated.) I much prefer to draw on medium weight drawing paper (recycled) or on Bristol board. I never draw on anything that can't take the abuse of being heavily colored with Trias and Prismacolors. Sketchbook paper simply can't take the abuse, so fie on thee! Okay, I don't know why I threw that last part in. I R teh weird.
