I like to doodle and use a lot of fineliner pens. This paper is just too smooth and my pens do bleed some. Also the lines look thicker even with my 0.1 fineliner in comparison to my clairefontaine sketch book which has a thinner paper about 90g. I only did some rough sketches on one sheet so far and didn't enjoy it at all. Sometimes I also like to sketch with my fountain pens and tried using it on this paper but it bled a lot more than my fineliner pens. Probably won't be using this book as much. Such a waste. Only thing is that it's a nice looking sketch book but didn't work out for me. And it is also heavy to hold. Maybe its just meant for only Ohuhu markers or very dry mediums like pencils, color pencils, pastels etc.
I bought the sketchbook alongwith Ohuhu Alcohol based markers. It claims to be a marker quality sketchbook but it bleeds a lot! I'm glad for the translucent sheet that came alonwith the sketchbook as well as the markers, which prevented the bleeding to the next page. The sketchbook is beautiful, I give it that! Amazing binding, hardcover, elegant. But did not serve the purpose. I have a ₹100 sketchbook that bleeds equally. I'm just starting to work with markers and the Ohuhu sketchbook won't be my choice for them the other time. The pages are good for pencil sketching, dry pastel and ink, but not for markers. Not worth the money.
I've been searching high and low for a sketchbook that can handle copic markers. I'm pleased to announce the search is over. Blending is a breeze with this sketchbook. The colours are bright and crisp. Line art is smooth. And erasing pencil is no problem at all - although for best results use a kneadable eraser.
Yes you will get bleeding through to the other side but with alcohol markers that seems to be a given - just put a sheet of paper between the pages so the ink doesn't seep through to the other side.
I highly recommend this sketchbook for use with Copic markers.
this is my first real sketch book so im no expert but i love this and im very excited to get into it. <3 the cover is thick and sturdy and the embellishment texture makes it feel kinda fancy. altho its not so textured that it cant hold some stickers. the elastic seems durable and its thicker than the one on my bulletjournal. i did a doodle to test the paper and i only did one or two layers of marker so i got a bit of ghosting but no bleeding (altho i could see it bleeding if you tend to press hard or layer lots). the paper is smooth and a good thickness. i didnt notice the perforation when i ordered so thats cool. the 8x8 size is the perfect balance of compact without being cramped. its cozy. good amount of room but its not so big you feel like you have to make a masterpiece lol.
At a very good price. The sketchbook is the perfect size for someone who has to small. Paper has good texture. It's very light, thin paper thought probably not for water based or oily paint, better for crayon, pastel, or pencil. It is very usable for both sketching and drawing, and cartridge paper that is good quality.The backing is heavy enough so you don't need to use it on a heavy backing.
This sketch book is excellent value. It takes watercolour as well as felt pens. The paper is great for pen and ink wash and colour pencils.It's a handy size and very sturdy and I'm sure I'm going to enjoy using it.
I am new to markers as a medium in my art and wasn't sure what kind of paper to use. This is exactly the kind of paper you need, it doesn't absorb the ink from your marker too much, and it hardly ever bleeds through to the other page. Plus it comes with a plastic sheet that you can keep behind the page to make sure you don't ruin the next page. This paper however, is not very suitable for watercolor. It is specifically more suitable for markers. It works perfectly for copics too!
