These markers are great! Very similar to Copic, and a fantastic value!

These markers are great! At 40 for $19.99, they’re 50¢ per marker, and that’s great if you’re on a budget (vs. about $8 per marker for Copic). There’s a pretty good variety in colors, they blend well with themselves and other brands of alcohol markers, and the caps are pretty close if not actually perfectly accurate to the color on all of the markers. they are super similar to Copic markers, in size shape, and i would even say quality. The main factor that is different from Copics is that they have a hard fine tip nib instead of a brush tip nib opposite the broad nib, which I thought I really liked about Copic markers, but I’m finding I really don’t mind the difference, it actually allows more control for me when drawing and coloring (I don’t do art all the time, so I don’t really have practice controlling a brush tip either). They definitely do bleed a bit more than Copic or Artist’s Loft brand markers, but more so on the broad end, which I personally rarely use anyways, and it’s not so bad either if you draw lighter and faster. All in all I do really love these markers, and I bought these after reading a lot of the bad and good reviews here, and there was no hair, used markers, and there is definitely a regular suede of orange (these are a few of the complaints I remover specifically). In the pictures I show a color chart I made compared to the caps and the color chart included in the set, all the pages the markers bled through, and comparisons to Copic markers and Artist’s loft markers. I’ve also shown everything that comes in the set, like the plastic to stop bleeding and the customer service insert. If you’re not a professional artist (or even if you are and you need some lower quality markers to burn through or for practice, idk) these are fantastic. I’m very excited to draw color and doodle with these babies and I haven’t done a whole lot with them yet that’s not in the pictures but I’ll post anything I do with them on my twitter @starastablue (not trying to promo, just don’t know if I’m gonna have a way to find and edit this later 😬) Also if you want the color chart instead of making one yourself, feel free to save any of the pictures on here, I’d be glad if someone got use out of them, since some of the inks are darker or brighter than the caps.
