I bought this paper to create highly-rendered pencil drawings for a picture book dummy. The landscape dimensions are close to a larger-sized children's picture book. The weight of the paper is adequate - not too thin, not too thick. The surface of the paper has a medium white brightness with very little tooth/texture, but still has just enough to produce a wide shading range. I prefer drawing papers that are more on the smooth side. If you're looking for paper that will provide you the opportunity to explore a lot of detail and create a rich, smooth drawing - this paper may possibly work for you. But everyone draws differently. Like any paper, you play around and adapt to the surface. I tend to draw delicately and softly. I've been using HB mechanical pencils ranging from 0.3mm to 0.9mm. Additional note: This paper will not completely erase dark, hard-pressured markings. Though they are easy to cover up with strategy. I suggest creating your concepts and sketch work on the more forgiving papers you enjoy. Leave this paper for the final drawing. Good luck!
