Pros: Personal preference – if you like markers, you like markers.
Cons: Can bleed through page, can be less forgiving than other mediums.
Why: Copics are widely regarded as the best and we agree, but if you don’t want to make such a large investment, Artist’s Loft are a cheap and very decent basic set.
Pros: Detailed enough for small areas, versatile enough for layering and advanced techniques.
Cons: Can be tedious to color large areas.
Why: Prismacolors are amazing, but a bit pricey. Crayola Twistables might sound like a choice coloring snobs will turn their noses up at, but they have a unique texture, are easy to use, inexpensive, and we really like them.
