It kind of depends on the size of the drawing and the scan. If you scan something very small very light you are going to see the texture. If you make bolder lines, not so much. If you're interested, here is the paper: smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0… Not that expensive, all considering. Another benefit is that it doesn't smudge nearly so much as other paper. I mean, it still does, especially if you use a lot of heavy, soft pencil, but it's better about it than basically every sketchbook paper out there.
