i rarely do things with nifty shading because i’m not much of a pencil artist, not much for drawing at all actually.
but i bought a roll of kraft paper (it’s sometimes called butcher paper; not to far off from paper grocery bags.) and i wanted to try using it for everything i could think of. it’s very very toothy, so it makes nice textures. sometimes i care more about texture than anything else when i create art!
i drew on it with conte crayons, charcoal, graphite, and a couple colored pencils. very old school materials. lol
