    Toned Sketchpads?

    Hey all, I'm looking for some recommendations for some cheap toned sketchpads. I'd like something in the yellow-ish/tan-ish realm.

    I found these pads, dunno if they are a quality or on the cheaper side:

    I'm interested in a range of sizes as well, from smaller 5x8 up to 12x16 or slightly bigger range.

    Thanks for any help.

    PS: Through the search function, I found this thread. But it was focusing on grey sketchpads and nothing above the 8.5x11 size.

    Mi-Tientes is fine quality paper.

    Thanks for the reply Pezz. Are there cheaper alternatives, or sketchpads with more sheets of paper within? It looks like these pads only come with 24 sheets. Anything in the 50+ range is what I am looking for.

    Mi-Tientes is expensive paper by comparison to anything else. I don't know of any other books that have different colors of toned paper like that. I have a sketchbook called a "Kraft Pad"

    It's pretty sweet but it's all brown paper.

    My Barnes and Noble now stocks these brown paper sketchbooks..
    Earthbound by Cachet
    They're a pretty perfect midtone brown, not as dark as that Borden and Riley pad so both white and black show up good. Excellent for conte.
