    I find that occasionally working white-on-black is just an excellent way to mix up my drawing process and break out of my bad habits; it’s such a different way to approach a piece and it’s good to try and look at things from another angle sometimes.

    Love the video! I was wondering though: are there any brands of mat board that are better than others? Would you value quality over price or vice versa when buying mat board?

      I honestly think with mat board that it really doesn’t matter what brand you buy. There are certain supplies where the brand you choose can make or break your experience, but mat board is not one of them! I seriously have never encountered a piece of mat board I have ever had a problem with! So yeah, I think you can’t go wrong here.
