    Well some of those are personal questions and ALL up to you. Experiment, have fun with your sketchbook. It's not like its the end of the world if you ruin a page, learning is learning.

    1. Anything you want
    2. Whenever you want
    3. Have it with you all the time
    4. On white paper? I suppose you should just try yourself hehe
    5. Whatever looks nice. Experiment, have some fun.
    6. If you want to keep pencil sketches smudge free, use some fixative or hairspray. Works pretty well.

    Bah. Fixative stinks, literally. If you really HAVE to keep your sketches clean, you can either get a non-spiral sketchbook, or use fixative. If your sketchbook is a spiral book, and is not hard-backed, chances are sketches will smudge if you aren't careful. At least, so has been my experience. But I have a 20 USD hardbound leather 11x14 book, no smudging problems at all, but I need to start taking better care of it!!! D:

    1. What do you suggest for the first page? What did you do?
    Whatever you are interested in. I did sketches of apemen and a TRex
    2. What do you do to be consistant in the amount of times that you spend adding to the sketchbook.
    Consis... Con... Con-sis-tant...? I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with the word...
    3. How should I keep it safe?
    Staple and hotglue it to your body so no one can take it away from you. Ever.
    4. Does a "chinese white" charchol pencil show up on acid free paper (too scared to do it. DX<). How do I use it?
    How many pages does your book have? If more than 1, sacrifice a page in the interest of scientific experiementation to see what happens.
    5. What kinda medium would you suggest that I'd use?
    Usually one associated with making marks.
    6. What should I do to keep it neat and smudge free?
    Why would you want to do that? Smudges are interesting and the spice of life!
