It doesn't absorb the water immediately, which is great, since I really love that drippy, splattery look.
The water does make the paper bend and curl, but I've found using a steam iron with the paper in between a bed sheet makes most of the wrinkles, at least the prominent ones, disappear.
Will definitely keep buying!
Overall, I love this sketchbook! I'm always recommending it to other art students! (:
As you can see in my attached pictures, you can draw in pencil, and there's minimal pencil transfer on facing pages.
With watercolor, I will say that you DO get some warping of pages (still great for light washes/studies/tests), but I haven't experienced much bleed. (There is, sometimes, this funkiness as if the paper's refusing to accept the watercolor, but if you work it for a few seconds, it tends to take.) Also, the paper does start to break apart if it's too saturated with water, so I'd definitely stick to the light washes/studies/tests. Don't go too hardcore with wet media. (I know this seems a little critical, but I have had a lot of success using this sketchbook for wet media! You just shouldn't fuss with it too much.)
With copics, you WILL get some bleed (see attached picture) but just slip a paper behind it the page you're drawing on.
In general, the paper's really great. Thick, heavy, and durable. You can erase easily and without damaging the paper, and the binding holds up well.
The weight of the paper is enough that it'll probably take the watercolor well, as long as I don't get too wash-y, and certainly enough for pens, with just enough texture to make it feel good without being distracting.
The spiral binding makes it easy to keep open to the page I'm working on, and the pages could easily pull out where they are perforated, but also stay in nicely.
I'm so glad I picked this journal/pad.
