The Paper Project - Experiment X

It's been a while since I've posted one of these tests but in reality I've had two of them finished for quite some time now.  Even though I finished the other one first, I was more excited to show off this one.  So without further adieu here is the next experiment.

Experiment X - Paper Comparisons

The purpose of this experiment was to basically color the same way on several different types of papers.  I wanted to show that great results can be achieved on any paper however the difficulties you might have would be different on each of the papers.  This is similar to Experiment IV but with different papers.

For this test I used images from The Greeting Farm and they colored using the same colors and as close to the same techniques as possible.

The papers are identified in the Introduction and here are the results:
(Click on the picture for a zoomed look.)

I used the same technique for the most part on each of the papers but there might be a few adjustments here and there depending on how the paper worked.

Here are the three papers used along with their assigned letter:
The papers I thought were the easiest to work with were J, U and X, and thus received my recommendation based on this test.  Then the close runner-ups would be G and M and I could consider these to be good backups.  However, the papers I didn't prefer to work with are B, N and V which were difficult to get smooth blending and/or blotches would appear after a couple layers of ink.
