I have several different inexpensive brands of alcohol markers, and I also have Copic. These Ohuhu alcohol markers are the very best of the inexpensive brands, AND I personally prefer them over my Copics. I have good control with these, they're juicy, and blendable -it's very helpful when first starting with alcohol markers to watch video tutorials on YouTube. The colors are vibrant, and I can get the tips of the markers into detailed areas of my drawings. I'm normally a colored pencil artist using Caran D'ache Pablo, and Faber-Castell Polychromos, but when I use markers, these are my top choice. The only downside is they're not refillable, so I'll need to replace the whole set when my favorite colors have run dry.
