these markers are unbelievable. as an art student, i’ve worked with a lot of alcohol markers, and i would say these are almost indistinguishable from copics. the blending, as you can see in the first photo, is excellent. just don’t let the inks dry like i did on accident in the royal blue + vivid purple swatch, but that’s with any alcohol marker. now, i do have a few complaints. the colourless blender isn’t super great for blending markers together, as you can see in the third photo. i find it easier to blend with the markers themselves. that being said, i think it’s great for making a colour lighter, or for removing highlights, as you can see in the second photo. the colour range is excellent, although i wish there were more warm greys. it’s hard to mix warm and cool neutrals without it looking odd, so i wish there was a better range of warm grey. but the cool greys are great, and frequently used. my other thing is i wish there were more skin tones, but ohuhu has an entire skin tone collection, which i will be investing in. just make sure you utilize the provided swatch card, as the caps are a little different from how the inks actually look. i reference my swatch card a lot. i was also pleasantly surprised to see that the markers work on canvas board, as shown in the last photo. a lot of alcohol markers will pool on my canvases, but these work very very well. for the price, you absolutely can not beat these markers. the blending is beautiful, the colours are rich, the range is great, the inks don’t smell too strong, and i would honestly buy these over copics. also, they include a clear pad that prevents the markers from bleeding onto the next sheet of paper, which is excellent.
