I usually buy cheap cansons :)

What you call cheep isn’t usually cheep by the time it gets to New Zealand. We have a good trade agreement with Europe cause of the whole Commonwealth thing, but that doesn’t mean it’s cheep- it’s available. It’s hard to get American brands here like Prismacolor. I have a few friends that love the wax effect they have but have to import them. Copics are usually about $12 each by the time NZ gets them and we only get the Original range, not the Sketch range T.T . We have Canson though. Is it actually good? Or are you just saying that you buy it? O.o

By cheap I mean I can buy it for 2,50-3,00 pln which is about $1 or less. It’s a good multitask paper I tend to ink and use color pencils on it. This one I have:

Copics here cost 24 PLN and Prismacolor are also harder to get :C 

Tho I could get you a bunch of those Cansons, I don’t have them in my town atm but there’s online shop that could provide some. Anyway It’d probably cost you few times less than in NZ anyway :)

I’m not sure if NZ stocks this particular pad- what is the details on that paper? is it 10 sheets of 180gsm paper? Is is a specialty paper or general purpose? Sorry- I can’t read the writing on the image XD

I’m mostly looking for specialty paper rather than general purpose stuff. Most places sell Bockingford paper which is 110gsm 60leaf cartridge which use to take my pencils OK, but I’m starting to have issues with the pencil staining so I’m trying to find other general purpose brands (omg that all sounds pretentious but I swear- sometimes brands just have bad batches, or they change their formula. I only got Bockingford out of habit cause it’s what I knew, and it’s certainly not the cheepest GP paper in my country), and since then I’ve changed to the WHSmith sketch pads which are a bit heavier at 135gsm and often on a 2 for one special at Whitcoulles :) The surface of their paper feels nicer too and they’re a little cheeper than Bockingford.

The specialty papers I have are the Stella and the Bristol board and they’re all over 200gsm so they’re able to take the punch of the techniques I use on them without warping. I know that sounds pretentious, but the Bockingford paper use to buckle and tear 

You’ll have to take my word for it cause I edited it out, but this page is 50% buckled under the pressure I put on the paper with my pencil, and you can sort of see it at the top. I originally planned a totally different background, and stained the background a middle grey tone erasing it. That’s why the sky area still shows a slight ripple from the scanning reflection. The black area at the bottom is a rippled mess, and the corners of the paper are all feathered and rounded. I overlayed a dark grey over it so it didn’t look so bad, but I had a trippy warped reflection going on when I scanned this cause graphite reflects. This is why I use 200+gsm on all my pencil pictures now. It can handle my heavy hand without tearing the paper. The stella I have now should be able to handle the colouring I’m doing now cause I’m pressing VERY lightly, but the top layer of fibers is flaway. I can’t get ANY detail down T.T

That’s the deal anyways with me and paper. I’m going to try another pad this weekend from my supplier and see if maybe it was just a bad batch or something, but I’ve bruised paper before- not flaked the fibers off. Totally weird :/ Sorry if it all sounds pretentious, but I’ve done a lot of looking into paper thinking it didn’t matter and it matters a huge amount, so I try to use professional grade stuff with the ones I’m going to spend 10+ hours on, and the cheep stuff for drafting concepts for finals. I have a light box to translate art over so there’s no issues with starting over again :)

It’s hard to get American brands here like Prismacolor with their coloured pencils. I have a few friends that love the wax effect they have but have to import them. Luckily Faber Castell is easy to buy cause I love the Polychromos, and have talked many people into investing after playing with mine XD (omg I LOVE them so much TuT )  Copics are usually about $12 each by the time NZ gets them and we only get the Original range, not the Sketch range T.T .

Trying to give glow effects a go with coloured pencil, and so far it looks ok, but I think I have a media issue cause the paper I got for my coloured pencil art isn’t grabbing the Polychromos and is flaking the card with barely any effort! *cries* I’m probably going to have to start this from scratch for a third time on a different brand of card T.T *grumbles* 
Anyone know a good brand (preferably European brand cause NZ may actually stock it) of paper for coloured pencil art?The stuff I’m using is Hahnemuhle Stella Matt drawing paper (250gsm). I’ve used Stella before, but this felt a MUCH smoother finish so I wonder if Hahnemuhle make different textures of tooth under the Stella range, or if they changed something in their formula. I shouldn’t have the issues I’m having with it :( Anyone know a good brand?

Out of all the challenges the DND campaign I’m in has presented, I’m heavily ammused that getting to the bottom of a 60ft well has been the hardest thing for us to accomplish cause no one in our party had rope of all things, so we used up my daily charge on my boots of Spider climb and ring of feather fall to navigate it.

But how do we get OUT of the well now that we’re in it again after we defeat the demon?

That sounds like a challenge. :)

Ahh your DND posts make me wanna play again.  hahaha

Playing DND 3.5 with my friends reminds me of how much I miss being in a straight hack slash game like DND. I haven’t played in a 3.5 campaign in YEARS. My last game was one where like this game, the whole group were girls besides the one male half elf, and the girls ended up joining a sisterhood together, had pink bubble baths with ambient music every night ( cause that’s what you do when you’re all spell casters with prestidigitation and ghost sound and the men playing women decide to embrace the pink and spear tackle it into a pit of puppies and kittens), we all romanced by a charming half elf bard who ended up tragically becoming a vampire slave (I cried so hard T.T ), and having a fling with a shape shifting dragon boy with command over ice after befriending an adorable baby girl dragon who he was the older brother of (I’m so in love with dragon so this campaign sang to me). I played a cleric of Gal Glittergold, and I was a gnome with a golden pick axe that was obsessed with getting gold dust to pay tribute to my diety. All my spells were cast in a cloud of gold dust (omg I miss that character TuT) The Bard used a shrink person spell to dance with my character is was SO DARN CUTE *cries*

This one is an all girl party too with Chandra (my character) as the token male character which so far has been great. It’s mostly been unimportant being the only guy, but the last fight we snuck in with me posing as a pesh dealer (wow- that’s hard XD ) with exotic dancing ladies which was REALLY cool cause we had a dance off with another slave trader’s dancers and totally made the whole building come to a stop to watch. Chandra is such a pimp in this game XD And he’s the “macho” guy who happens to not be as strong as two girls in the group too which is hilarious when he fails his strength checks when the ladies pass TuT

I need to remind myself about this book. I’ve wanted to read it for a while, but the audio book version is so tempting :)
