    i dont like permapaque markers, unless you are drawing on something high gloss they dont come out clean, and they rip up your paper.

    i use sharpies, copics, and prismas. i like copics the best
    if youre using paper that doesnt suck up ink really fast (watercolor paper is the shit for sketching, but it soaks up all your ink, ruins markers, and is hard to get clean fills) i would just use sharpies.
    i mostly do sharpie fine point and ultrafine point markers, and then use copics to blend fills together and do fades and shit. you can do blends if you just use sharpies and use a prisma or copic blender. they dont come out perfect, but they look good.

    paint markers too, for highlights and forcefields and shit.

    decocolor are my favorite paint marker for like fine point outlines and forcefields, but painters by elmers work the best, they dry fast and dont stay tacky like oil based do.

    also, when i feel like i have to do an outline first, i use a decocolor ultra fine point marker, and do the fill with ink markers so it doesnt fade or blend or anything.
    doesnt work good with metallic colors though, and if you pencil sketch and outline with paint marker, then erase your pencil lines, the paint marker outline gets kind of sketchy.

    doing your outline in your fill color, filling it in, adding your 3d or dropdown or whatever, then doing a final outline in black or whathaveyou, is the best way to do it i think. i do alot of stickers, so i need sketches to look real clean and fancy so people dont regret trading with me

    for me, decos.

    there the most common pens around my area, like a ten minute walk from my friends house. the only place that sales them is michealles (spelt wrong).

    easy as fuck to rack almost anything from that place. from decos, prismas, microns and even black books. and now paint. my friend hooks me up.

    buy decos are my main choice.

    anything made by faber castel... prismas (if used properly) lectracolor... that sort of thing.. but theres nothin wrong with a decent marker with a piece of paper underneath the page to aviod the bleeding onto the page underneath..

    copic sketch markers are the best. they dont bleed through sketchbook paper and they are really high quality. the only problem is that if you dont rack them they are nearly 5 dollars a marker

    • Likes Received: 0 shouldnt be worrying about price..cause real writers RACK..but doesnt matter...every color you see that appeals to you..steal it..keep a test page..check the marker..if it works ok.. your good.

    personally i like 'le plume" watercolors and anything else i get my hands on...most art stored have the markers singly in racks...usually i go in with a flight jacket and leave with pockets fullof markers

    i use sharpie painters..i got them at joanns, not sure who else sells them, michaels sells 'em, but they lock 'em up with the decos. yeah, i'm cool with racking up with paint. i haven't got caught yet, but i got the combination to the paint. =] oh yeah well, i use prisma colors too, mechanical pencil, eraser, and some shit called "painters". Elm or elmer that glue company made it i guess. the sharpie painters i suggest, but you can't write over another color, it smears, it has extra fine pt, fine pt, medium pt. etc.

    i use uni paint markers which you can get at hardware stores, and i got a 24 set of watercolor markers at a craft store. they are pretty good although i wouldnt recommend them for stickers cause they're not waterproof.
