Hi All

 

I am currently looking at buying some ZIG & Kuretake products, have any of you used them before?Whats your thoughts on the products? I have looked at Copic aswel but not to sure.

 

Please let me know your thoughts or alternative tools.

Might want to consider Prismacolor.

 

How do prismacolor differ from Copic, ZIG & Kuretake?

 

Is there anything that prismacolor offer when compared to them?

 

Thanks

It's really all personal preference. I would see if you can find some loose markers to try before buying a full set.

 

Copics are very nice but very expensive (at least here in the US). Prismacolors in the US are cheap and easily found.

 

I have not used either of the others so I couldn't comment.

can I ask what you currently use please?

 

The honest answer would be "neither" - as a professional I do any rendering that I need to digitally on a Wacom tablet.

 

As as student (and what currently sits left over in my drawers) I used Prismacolors as they were what was cheapest and most easily available.

Ok if not for rendering do you use any pens, markers and pencils say for example your sketches?

Regular 99 cent BIC ball point pens (or whatever I have in my hand, usually handouts from a conference) and Prismacolor colored pencils (Indigo Blue).

I have never heard of or used them. May be a difference in the US market or they may just not have been around when I was shopping for markers.
