Yep. The black paper is actually a bit lighter than black pastel, which is kind of handy if you want to show a really dark shape. The pastels I use are Conte brand, numbers 09 (black), 42 (sepia, which matches the black paper), 33 (grey) and 20 (light grey). I actually don't normally use a true white, because it's too bright! xD The brand isn't important; all you need are pastel pencils in 3 or 4 shades.

That's ok! I hope you can find some - you should be able to get it at craft stores, like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Otherwise you can order it online. :)

I used to have to transfer the images from white paper to black using a grid system (you can see it on some of my older process sketches). I was incredibly relieved when I discovered I can use the printer on black paper - it saved me hours of aggravation! :phew:

What printer did you use? Ink or lazer?

I use an inkjet printer at home. I don't know if different inks would work differently, but it's certainly worth an experiment or two! :lol:

This actually solved a problem I had about a pic of mine! Now I don't have to blacken the whole page! YAY!!

Another question: What do you use to shade? Crayons?

OH! And something else and I'm done, promise! What kind of black paper is this? I mean, how do you ask for it in a shop?

I use Strathmore brand drawing paper - the specific name is "Artagain", because it's made from recycled paper. Here's a link to an image: [link]
