These markers are incredible! I have been wanting to get into using alcohol markers but could never afford Copics. I saw these on a Jazza youtube video and with such a high recommendation, I couldn't resist. And I'm really glad I didn't. These go down smooth, don't run, have fantastic brush nibs, and in general do everything that I would expect from a Copic marker at a fraction of the price. If you are looking to get into art using alcohol markers or an artists on a budget you will not be disappointed with these!!
