Another page from the same sketchbook. I sketched this back in November 2011. This time I decided to try Inktense pencils just to see if the paper could handle the water. I thought the paper did an excellent job, though there was some buckling. A few heavy books and a couple of hours later, and the buckling was almost gone. These pencils aren't always light fast, but for sketch booking I think they're great. The sketchbook stays closed most of the time, so the few times it gets opened should hopefully be okay. I do stay away from the worst offenders for fading, hopefully that will be enough. I wish the pencils were more light fast as they are truly fun to play with, the colors really are intense!
