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.
I love the thick cores which are very soft and creamy and the colors are rich in hue. They do well in both blending and layering and using the Derwent blender and burnisher really makes filling in areas quick. I haven't had any issues with leads breaking but because they are so soft it is hard to maintain a sharp tip.
I found these do play well with Prismacolor Premiere and Faber-Castell Polychromos as well as many other sets I own. There's a few unique colors not found in other sets as well.
The tin they come in is thick but the lid doesn't stay on well so I do use a large Rubberband to keep it closed when storing them. The trays are decent and not too thin or flimsy like some sets.
Overall one of my top must have pencils.
