    (if you just take the time to read it =_=)

    Well, I was in Yellowstone last month and they had "paper" made out of bison dung. Maybe you can use that.

    Your problem sounds like you either a) press too hard on the paper so it leaves marks on it or grooves or b) the pencil is too soft and it smudges too much. The solution to b is to get a harder graded pencil. Regular pencils are HB which are neither too hard or too soft. If you can get your hands on some pencils that are H-graded, then you may solve your problem. The higher the number, the harder the pencil lead.

    Personally, I like the regular #2 (HB) pencil but going one way or the other has it's perks. For example, softer pencils (B pencils) can create nice shading if you're doing pencil work. H pencils, on the other hand, are less likely to leave smudges since they're harder (but they tend to leave grooves on the paper). Which on do you prefer? If you like smudging your work, then use B. If you prefer cleaner work, use H pencils. Depending on the result I'm going for, I may use one over the other otherwise regular pencils are right in the middle for general doodles and sketching.

    lol Yeah, I used to draw like that as well. You'll have to learn how to loosen up. It's hard at first but with a little practice you'll save yourself the trouble of ripping through paper (yeah, I've done that! xD).
