Hey!
Love your work mate.
I'm assuming you're using graphite.
What kind of paper you use with it?

Thank you, Povan. I use graphite in some work, along with conte, charcoal, chalk and oil pastel in others. As far as what type of paper I use, that depends on the date of the piece. In the last few years I've consistently used 80 lb sketchbook paper of varying sizes. Years back, (with my lifesized drawings) I used rolls of 36" wide paper from the art company Dick Blick.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you think it would be wrong to use graphite and charcoal on 20 lb soft sketchbook page?

Depends on the order of the application. Graphite tends to be slick, so if you put it down first, the charcoal will just slide over it. If you use the charcoal first, you should be OK. The weight of the paper only matters if you intend to sell it. 20 lb should be fine for practice, or if you're only after a digital image.
