New Drawing Paper + New bloody drawings

Yesterday I went shopping with my boyfriend and found some new paper =) I'm very selective when it comes to paper and am yet to find the perfect paper for colour pencils and graphite. This new one from Viking Norma has such a great smooth matte texture and I had to test it out on both a coloured pencil drawing as well as a graphite drawing, pretty much at the same time. I think it works great with both and it's especially great with colour pencils. It's still not perfect for me but it's pretty close.

I will post the final versions of the vampire and "sad girl in the wind" in a few days when they are both completed, I was just exited to show you already :)

I might try this paper out. What do you consider the perfect paper to be, out of curiosity?

Good question Lianne, I will let you know when I find out :) It's hard to find paper that works great with each different medium, I think it will come in time, that you happen to come across something that just works perfectly for you personally. Fx, I know a lot of artists like textured paper for charcoal whereas I like it super smooth... just to show how different it can be from artist to artist.
