Thanks I love making them! As for the paper? It's funny- I use the standard, crappy, strathmore sketchpads to sketch and paint in- when I buy fancy watercolor paper, I get too nervous about it to actually sketch freely
Do you tend to work in the watercolour first then add pen on top or create a sketch and add colour? Been trying to work it out from the artwork but it's a tough one. You've reminded me how to show such complex shapes with just a splash of shade and a few guidelines, one of my favourite styles of drawing!
