I'm using watercolor paper because most other paper warp or dry/absorb too fast when wet. This one is my favorite kind. [link] The texture is more evenly spaced out, and it is thinner so I can easily trace over a lightbox.
I only drew this because I was like..."**** I need a new drawing if I am going to make a contact paper sub tutorial." Good thing I already had a sketch done. I don't think I could have brought myself to draw anything new yesterday. BTW I have class starting on the 17th.
