The paper itself is fine...
February 16, 2016
The paper itself is fine for sketching with your basic HB pencils (I haven't tried anything harder) and crayola colored pencils. You can make nice smooth gradients & blend pencil just fine on it, and it has more of a tooth than printer paper, so there's that. The paper is an off white, which is nice if you stare at your sketchbook for long periods of time.

If you draw hard or like to sketch on both sides of the paper, this sketchbook is not for you. Like most sketch paper, you can only use one side of it to sketch on: if you press down too hard on it, the drawing on the other side of the paper (and sometimes 1-2 pages away!) will mark the other page on the other side. Due to how thin the paper is, both oil pastels and crayons tend to be somewhat visible on the other page. The thinness also causes the corners of both the cover & the paper tend to be easily bent if you're not gentle with it, or if you stick it in your bag wrong. Both the cover & the pages will rip off easy too, so keep an eye on it if you take it to school or any other high traffic area.

It's a standard sketchbook good for pencil users, and for about 11 cents per a page, it's a good deal. Just try not to draw too hard!
