    Dick blick is the fucking shit, i have one 3 mins from my house. That preffered customers and coupons shit is the best, I save so much fucking money. I wish they carried better sketchbooks for markers tho, I've used the 2 diff types they carry and they both shitty in different ways and the binding pisses me off so much, each page rip out.

    if ur lookin fo really high quality, yea id suggest copic cuz prismas will smear pencil lines. U have to erase every trace of pencil if u want ur piece to look really good with prisma. Myself, i use Marvy brush tips. not the best, but descent quality & pretty cheap.

    i just stay simple an use sharpies an bics for fills an elmers paint markers for outlines. somtimes i use decos or prismas but i only have the basic packs. my favorites are the metallic prismas. stinky but super raw

    I use Decos and painty's.... decos have a better tip so the fill is cleaner but paintys have more colors...

    touch twins are pretty decent but a 12 pack will run you about 30 bucks which is about the same price as the new otr's and they're pretty sick too. If you're having problems with your markers bleeding get a better book. paper quality makes all the difference and black books tend to last longer than your markers hence, a smarter investment

    Prisma,elmers paint, decos, sharpie all work fine.
    I suggest like a 70-80lbs paper, acid free. anything lower will bleed the slightest of inks.

    you can find something at an art store called a "blender" basically a marker with alcohol in it im pretty sure..

    or you can take some rubbing alcohol and put that on a q-tip

    should i ask for those otr markers advertised on the bs website for christmas? are they any good? do they tend to bleed through paper?
    markers dont bleed through acid free paper? what kind of bbook should i get then?

    or should i just get prisma markers?

    sharpie paints, these ZIG brand 2 tip outliner, touch markers, chalk markers are nice for outlines, myni prismas (brush and chisel tips) and these water colour brushes that you squeeze.

    Decos are nice and kind of easy to blend
    with once you do it a few times, but sharpies
    are still good and to me they look better than

    well I have really only done like put down a
    black 3d then put one shines in and smear the
    white inwards. So then it turns to a grayish
    if the black is still wet. I have done it a few times
    with other colors but I just usually do it in
    the 3d of my sketches.
