So, I ran oot of paper and charcoal this week at the life drawing classes. I kept repeating that I had to go buy some paper and good charcoal as well, so my good friend Craig did not waste anytime and just chum me there like a breeze. There are 2 things I definitely have to mention:
1. That shop we’ve been to was M-A-S-S-I-V-E, there is nothing that is doesn’t sell. Funnily enough I did not glance up to see what the name of their company/brand/building was called. classy. But for a massive shop that sells a bit of everything it really is quite impressive, they have great Art materials at a rather cheap price [cheaper than Hobby craft, that I once referred to as my personal paradise.]
2. The candy is cool :3
I was wondering what type of paper to buy; tinted, textured, or just plain… It was a hard decision, Tinted paper for some reason is so damn expensive. I’d rather build my own background color on my drawings. Textured is so perfect with charcoal, and I work so well with it and that shop we have been to had a pretty nice deal… Plain paper does not grab charcoal very well , I would have wasted so much money onto hairspray if I ever did use plain paper.
When I use textured paper in Life drawing classes I have extremely strong glares coming from all the sides, it gives such a nice arty effect, rough and 3D. It makes everybody envy you paper. Trust me, Charcoal and textured paper is the best :3 and candy is nice too.
