I've relegated myself to being creative and purchasing greyish and brownish paPer from the scrape book section of Michael's and hobby lobby. However I know there has to be illustration board that is off color in grey or brown. What is the stuff called and where can I get it?

Just use hot-press-finish mat board; it comes in all the colors of the rainbow.

Also, Dick Blick carries this (http://www.dickblick.com/zz136/00/) stuff.

"Scrape book"? :huh:

You might want to look up "Mi Tientes". It's a heavier stock paper designed for pastels and colored pencils. It has two sides, one smoother (good for pencils) and one rougher (better for pastels).

Actually, it seems the boards are back, and they're cheaper than the ones Newt posted (and bigger too):

Try not looking away from the monitor at the exact moment you log into and out of the forum.

What are you going to be doing on the board?

I've read that it helps to visualize a piece in 3-d without needing colors.

Also was shown some old german artwork (1600s?) that was done on a red paper.

I've always liked getting black mat board adn drawing on it with white. It makes you look at how youd draw tones from the complete opposite end
