Point is you have to choose your paper according to your project..eg
If you are using the copic colors, then go for papers by copic co. as they are specially designed so that the colors don't bleed out. same way if you are using water colors then take 200-300 gsm paper (hot press / cold press) my brand is Brustro, and a local brand for 100% cotton paper hot press as that's what I have used till now.
My personal choice is 300 gsm "Brustro" for best results.
*** few extra things for later on are the paint thinners, acrylic brushes, blending tools etc. but that's for the later.

I started making sketches and ended making these cute cards for my client who was very keen to get a handmade card made for her father and a friends b'day. In this the coloring is done with the Derwent Water colors.
this is how the card looks from inside, the person was a big fan of Starbucks and she wanted me to make a cards with all his fav foods in it..

|I have been practicing different types of water color pencils off late and just love the way the Derwent water colors come our...be it the light faded look ..like the one I got for this Girl..or this Owl below ...|
