    Copy paper is fine but it would be best to use thicker paper especially if you're going to ink, erase a lot, and even add tone or text. Thicker paper can handle ink better as well as erasures and anything that can be pasted onto it like tones and texts.

    Anyways, use whatever you can get your hands on the easiest. Since you're starting out, plain copy paper is perfectly okay.

    Depends on what kind of ink you're using. If you're using inking pens, you should be fine. If you're using inking pens with nibs and liquid ink from a bottle, than it's not good to use copy paper. It's just too flimsy and will most likely warp.

    If you want to Tone at home, I also recommend Bristol. (Just throwing something up I heard at an art store.)
