Ohuhu Official

I was kindly gifted these sketch markers to share my opinion about using them for fashion illustration. If you are interested in learning more about these budget-friendly alcohol markers, please see my review below.

Introduction

Ohuhu was inspired by the colorful Hawaiian island Oahu and you can clearly see it in this brand. These markers are full of vibrant colors, nicely pigmented and offer a great range for every young artist. Markers in this Ohuhu 72 Sketch Marker set are double-tip markers with a brush on one side and chisel on the other side.There are 72 colors in the set as well as a colorless blender. Ohuhu markers are alcohol-based which means fast drying time and no smudging while you sketch. This set also comes with a small portable bag for markers that solves the problem of storing them and you can easily take them wherever you go.

Swatches

This 72 Sketch Marker Set has all the colors you need for fashion illustration. A nice range of warm and cool greys, neutrals and more than enough beautiful shades of green, blue and red.

There are 12 shades of grey, ranging from cool to warm grey with a nice addition of green-grey.

There are also 12 shades of neutral and yellow colors that you can use for skin and hair. They are quite vibrant and saturated, more than usual sketch markers. It would be nice to have a little bit more colors in this range, more beige shades and a little bit less orange ones.

Blue, red and green colors are nicely pigmented and there is a great range of colors to chose from and use them for highlights and shadows.

Fashion Sketching with Ohuhu Markers

Doing swatches on marker paper is nice for trying out markers, but the real feeling about them I can only get through sketching to see how they blend and behave with different sketchbooks. So I chose a collection from Spring 2020 Ready -to- wear to really see them at work.

It was easy to find different shades for skin tone but I had only two per skin type - one for the base color and one for shadow. Colors glide nicely in my Fashionary sketchbook and there was no bleeding through pages. The shades are intense and vibrant. Blending ability is good but doesn't forget to wait until the first layer is dry. It's easy to build up the color and there are plenty of greys to use as a shadow option. They are a bit chunky to hold because of the round design but I got used to it quickly. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with how the sketch turned out.
