A few things I have learned. When your dealing with a pencil sketch, start with the background first. Secondly you CAN use any paper you have sitting on your desk...it doesn't have to be "Copic compatible". The paper I used (thank you Marianne) is All In One printer paper. It tuned out so cool and was so easy to blend. This paper takes a bit of practice as it soaks up ink fast and spreads. Also note I am not completely happy with my shadows...but I am over it and moving on.
