MARKER REVIEW! Which Marker Brand Should You Choose?

Thumb

In this marker review video I’ll go over 6 different marker brands and show you how well each brand blend on marker paper.

I will be using 2 markers of a similar shade of each brand. Except for the Promarker since I messed that up 😀

Summary:

Prismacolor:

Great marker for a specific type of sketching. Personally, I’m not a huge fan. I don’t like the fat nib since it literally blocks my view of where I’m sketching. Also the ink distribution is weird. Almost like it’s constantly going dry even though the marker itself is new.

Touchnew:

Great marker with vibrant colors. Dual tips – one broad tip and one fine tip on each marker. Might be TOO wet for some but there is a nice flow to the strokes. Takes a bit of time to dry which also means you’ll have time to blend.

Promarker:

The marker that started it all for me! These were the first markers I bought in college and they lasted me 10 years. The just went dry for this video! Perfect timing… Great markers for to start with, really no complaints.

Touch:

I love the Touch markers. I like the black design of the marker itself. Blends really well and feels high quality. Great starter sets available with all the colors you need.

Copic Sketch:

Always been a fan of the Copic markers. I like the regular sized ones even though in some cases they might feel a bit too fat and rectangular. I prefer the Sketch versions with a more nimble feel to the marker. Big advantage is the refill feature!

Thatcolor:

Not going to waste anybodies time here – don’t get these markers. The colors don’t match the cap and sometimes you won’t get any color at all. Blending capabilities are not good since they dry extremely quickly and leaves no time to blend.

Thank you for watching!
