COPIC Sketch Markers- Set of 12...This set features 12 best selling COPIC Sketch Marker colors. It comes in a handy clear plastic box that has a slot for each marker. A perfect way to start you collection of COPIC markers! COPIC markers are made in Japan. The sketch markers are double ended- one end has a fine point flexible brush tip; while the other end is a multi purpose chisel tip. COPIC were designed with comic book (manga) artists in mind- but they are perfect for artwork of all types! Permanent non-toxic colors.
From the manufacturer
Copic makes one of the highest quality alcohol markers in the world. Developed for—and widely adopted by—the Japanese manga industry, Copic markers are ideal for all styles of art, design, illustration, and crafts. Durable, refillable, and featuring replaceable nibs, you only need to buy a Copic marker once.
Vibrant, Smooth Color: Copic ink applies smoothly and is easy to blend. The alcohol based ink dries acid free and does not destroy paper fibers the way water based inks do. Also, the open time on uncoated papers is limitless, so you can go back and re-wet the ink years later!
Permanent & Non-Toxic: Copic markers are free of harmful chemicals and overwhelming odors, making them much more enjoyable to use than other brands.
Refillable: Once you purchase a marker, it is yours for life. By simply refilling the marker and replacing damaged nibs, your marker will last a lifetime. Some artists have been using the same markers for up to 25 years.
Super Brush Nib: This unique, flexible brush allows for smooth blends and paint-like application. No other brush marker on the market has the feel and quality of the Super Brush nib.

I'm an amutaur artist, I've only been doing art for 6 years, and copics are easy to handle, blend and use. They have a nice brush tip, and with proper paper they won't bleed. The only slight problem I noticed is that orange didn't really like to blend with the yellow, but they may have just been me. These markers are perfect for people who like a nice, clean look, without the splotchy paint lines or marker lines (provided if you learn to use them propetly.)
If you're a first time buyer of copics, you won't regret it. The first time I got copics was when I was 14 And I was crazy for them. Also if you wanna know how to use copic markers I suggest watching tutorials on YouTube, it certainly helped me when I found out I didn't know how to color properly with markers XD
I would also like to clarify there are 12 colors not 17, I'm not sure why it says 17 on the tab.
Anywho, I hope my review helped! I would definitely buy again and recommend.
(The picture of the colored character was used with my other copic markers, but I posted it to show how copic markers look when used on a character/drawing.)
These work great alone, but (I found) Copics are best when blended together and because this is a 12pc BASIC set, you only get 12 different colors. It makes doing highlights and shadows a bit difficult when you are missing the in-between shades and tones. So, again, I would keep that in mind when buying this particular set. I'd say it's more for beginners learning to get a feel for the Copic Sketch Markers or for those who don't really know where to start in buying Copic Sketch Markers 'cause there are so many. With this set you can get a feel of how to use them and figure out what shade you need to fill in the gaps of the 12 colors.
in-between the pink copic (RV [red violet] 11) and the red copic (R08) in this set, there are 26 other copics with varying shades/tones that exist. Imagine roughly that many colors applying for each of the copics sitting next to each other in this set.
You can buy this set and see just how light the light blue (B14) is and just how dark the dark blue (B29) is, and figure out if you need something just a bit lighter or a whole lot darker, and then buy those individual colors separately. This way you have the 12 basic colors as a foundation and can add your preference in-between colors yourself.
Or, if you are wanting to use these with a more "directed" approach i.e, for flowers only, the sea only, or people only, then maybe this isn't the best set for you. There are floral sets, sea & sky sets, and skin tone specific sets (among others) that may suit you better than this general 12pc set simply by not having to search for/ through so many colors because the above mentioned sets would come with the shades and tones you need.
Overall, I really like this set and am quite happy with it, but I wanted to let others to know that this IS a 12pc BASIC set. Emphasis on the basic. I kept reading this when searching reviews before I purchased my own set: That "...this was a BASIC..." And while I was prepared in the fact that these 12 colors were probably not going to be enough, I wanted a solid place to start with when buying these markers. I realized that there were other sets available and that I would probably need skin tones as well as the B&W and gray-scale colors at a later date, but I came to the conclusion that the 12pc Basic Set was good enough for me for now.
I don't know if anyone reading this review has done that research and so I just wanted to give a little explanation as to WHY this set would be considered basic for people reading review after review and seeing that these are great markers getting great reviews, but beware, this is a "BASIC" set.
I hope this helps~
CONS: I probably received a set of refurbished Markers, as other buyers have stated some of the markers leave a large blob of ink, I was almost done with a piece of art and the blob ruined it. Try 3 other artwork, and every time the the markers C4, C6 and C7 are used to make dots or slow strokes, it accumulates a lot of ink on the tip, and leaves a giant blob on ink on the paper.
I had Copic in the past, no problems, so I believe it's a refurbished series of I just had bad luck , like other here.
HEADS UP: This series of Copic markers are slightly smaller than the ones you buy separate, they hold less ink inside. The price still worth, but I saw no info on the size difference, so pay attention to that.
But I’m past the return timeline so stuck with the wrong markers. My bad for not looking earlier, very pricey mistake

I also like that these are refillable although mine haven't worn out yet.
Good price fast shipping :)
Wenn man sich für Copics interessiert, ist es jedoch wichtig sich zu Beginn für die "richtigen Farben" zu entscheiden, möchte man ja bestimmt tolle "Blending" Effekte kreieren und von Anfang an möglichst gut aufeinander abgestimmte Farben im eigenen Sortiment haben mit denen man seiner Kreativität freien Lauf lassen kann.
Da ich zu Beginn direkt vor hatte viel mit Copics zu arbeiten, interessierte ich mich für die 72er Sets da diese im Preisleistungsverhältnis einfach unschlagbar sind. Empfehlen kann ich mit Set A und B zu starten und diese Sets dann je nach finanzieller Situation mit Set E und D zu erweitern.
Das Set D habe ich mir persönlich als letztes angeschafft, da es mit den vielen sehr hellen Tönen und den fluoreszierenden Farben nicht essenziell wichtig, aber doch eine schöne Ergänzung ist. Ich persönlich freue mich sehr über die unglaublich schönen blauen und violetten Nuancen aus diesem Set.
Einen Tipp den ich noch geben kann, ist die Copics mit Polychromos oder ähnlichen Buntstiften zu kombinieren. Wenn man noch nicht über ausreichend Farbnuancen von Copic verfügt, kann man den Bildern mit intensiv pigmentierten Buntstiften dennoch sehr viel Tiefe geben. Trotz meiner großen Farbpalette an Copics, gehört diese Technik heute als fester Bestandteil zu jedem kleinen Kunstwerk. Von einem kleinen Bastel-Projekt, bei dem ich diese Technik verwendete, habe ich ein Bild hochgeladen.
Als Highlighter für Copics verwende ich persönlich die GellyRoll Pens von Sakura, da sie verglichen mit anderen Stiften sehr farbecht bleiben. Günstigere Gel-Stifte nehmen sehr schnell die Farbe des sich darunter befindlichen Copic Farbtons an, sodass beispielsweise ein weißes Highlight auf rotem Untergrund schnell rosa wird.
