If you want something for both blending and precision work I suggest Standford's Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils, I have the 132 set, they blend pretty well but not as well as these Derwent Colorsoft, but on the other hand I can make cleaner and detail oriented drawings with them.
If you want the ultimate for small meticulous detailed work then I suggest Faber-Castell's Colour Pencil Polychromos tin of 120. Those are thin and hard smear proof oil based pencils for the ultimate clean and bold lines. Standford has the Prismacolor Verithin Colored Pencils but I find them inferior to the Faber-Castell's Polychromos and also the Prismacolor Verithins only comes in a set of 24 I believe which strange since with hard lead pencils you cannot blend colors easily and therefore cannot created new colors by smearing them together, you would think they would offer more choices like Faber-Castell's 120 Polychromos.
The downside to this set is that the metal case isn't the best for carrying around, and kind of annoying if you want to reach the second row of pencils. I keep an elastic around the tin to keep it from opening in my bag
ANYWAYS. To long didn't read:
-Good number of colors
-Thick and soft cores.
-Case is a little weird and not handy for traveling with.
Bottom line is would I recommend these to someone serious about their coloring? Yes hands down yes.
So I'll compare these to other brands you may be familiar with. They're are a less waxy pencil than Prismacolor. They FEEL less waxy than Faber-Castell Polychromos, although those are an oil based pencil. So I guess I should say they feel less 'smooth'. But as I said, these have a.. textured feel to them when in use. They are more pigmented than the majority of Derwent Artist/Studios (also a wax-based pencil of the same brand). I am yet to experience any significant issue with blooming or loosing the tooth of paper underneath layers of the pencil. I already feel myself falling in love with these!
A downfall is the barrel of these is a little larger than most pencils, and they're a tight/impossible fit for most all of my sharpeners.
And unlike the Polychromos I recently ordered through the same Amazon seller, they came in perfect safe condition!
