This is my 1st time drawing on black paper and the believed course of action is extremely unique from drawing or portray on white paper. You can see with this sketch I am however working with my regular line drawing style. I’ve made use of colored pencils and Zig pigment markers for this sketch.

The paper has easy good grain texture and performs perfectly with coloured pencils, opaque inks and markers.

This is not watercolour paper so it is really not able to take soaked media. Black watercolour paper does exists, such as Stonehenge Aqua Black and Somerset Black Velvet Paper. So get the appropriate paper for the media you use.

Fabriano Black Black is superior for dry media and opaque markers.

If you are looking for black drawing paper, the Fabriano Black Black is great and quite fulfilling to draw on. Pricing is really affordable way too. At time of evaluate, it is really US $9.82 for a 9 x 12-inch pad with 20 sheets on Blick Art Components.
