At the moment, I'm pretty comfortable with copy paper. I would love to switch to bristol or something, but I don't have the money to buy it, nor do I have the patience to scan it in. Because my scanner is so small, I'd have to scan it in a billion different parts! Just like I did before when I drew 6 pages on 11“ by 14” paper.
You can get 8 x 10" Bristol; I have some. I think it's 25 p., and I know it cost me less than 6 bucks for the pad.

Less than 6 bucks for 25 sheets of bristol that's about the size of printer paper?
Or did I read that wrong?

I get all of my drawing paper from the local university bookstore, since they're state-funded and sell most things at cost. I checked my pad, and it's the Strathmore 300, 9 x 12, 20 p. for $5.85. I think if you went to an art store, it would be closer to $8. You can order that stuff at a discount online, but usually they make up for the “savings” with shipping costs, so it's not worth it unless you're doing a bulk order, or it's something you can't buy local.
