Triplus Fineliner(30): Out of the bunch these have the smoothest application and I enjoy using them the most. You don't have to worry about ruining the paper if you go over the same spot a couple times. You can actually fill up a decent size area without it being streaky like you'd expect with most of these products. It's unfortunate they chose so many muted/ dark colors (12/30 to be exact) and they are the most expensive. Bleed? Little to moderate
Stabilo(30): Wide range of bright colors at a decent price. I find myself reaching for these more than steadtler because of the colors although they have a harder tip and can be scratchy, it would be hard to fill a decent size area but good for precision. Bleed? Moderate
Pentel(36): Got these to fill in bigger spaces as they're cheaper than the steadtler colour pens and stabilo 68 pens. For the price they're ok. I love all the colors but really hate using them. They feather, can't be used for precision, and tear up the paper pretty fast. It's almost impossible to get even coverage as well. I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of them, pretty bummed overall. Bleed? Yes
Monami(24): I love these things. They're CHEAP!, colorful, and bright- but not good for big areas. The tip is hard to explain, think maybe like Papermate Flairs except finer, great for details that can be hard to get with the other fineliners. They're actually good for writing as well(I buy the packs of black for note taking). It's smoother than the pentel felt tip but will still tear up the paper and can give streaky coverage (some colors more than others) if you aren't careful. Note- they sometimes "sputter" when brand new. Not a lot though and it subsides quickly. Bleed? Little to none!
Was very surprised after reading so many good reviews. Waited too long to try the markers, so now I can't return them.
After an extensive search on Amazon for "THE perfect markers," I finally purchased this set. Two in fact. One for myself and one for my niece.
I am an artist with a Bachelors in Media Arts & Animation. Mainly a painter, but I love experimenting with other medias. So, markers are a first for me since childhood. In terms of artist snobbery (years of classical training tends to do that...lol), Pentel is not my first choice in art supplies. However, they did an excellent job with this marker set. So much so, I'm surprised. :)
I have been seeing these adult coloring books around and decided on buying a coloring book from a best seller. The next logical step was, what do I color this book with? Adult coloring books, for me, I decided are not for ballpoint pens, gel pens, or anything that would be streaky. I mean I spent good money on that book, right? Yeah I did! :)
I read the reviews on these markers, even the #1 recommended review which was only a 4-star. I saw the complaints, and I saw the compliments. What made me buy these were the customer photos. The results of these markers compared to other products on Amazon were phenomenal. I took some photos of my own.
From an artist's perspective, markers bleed, and after trying these markers out, even though they are of high quality, it is all the same. The pressure applied determines the color saturation. If you color in strokes, overlapping marker strokes will show. If you color in tiny circular motions, the color will be more saturated as well. Markers (considering high end brands to low end brands), to me, are HARD to work with. These are no different. My first experience was of coloring a small simple owl to see how the markers work. They do blend wonderfully! I only wish this set came with a clear blender, but they blend well on their own.
The color output does not match the plastic marker casing. True. But this is true for almost all media I know of. I always make color charts, even with paints I paint the pigment onto paper and tape the paper onto the paint tubes...take some paper, color in the order the markers are in, tape it to the plastic and boom - a color chart. Why someone would knock a star off for that, I don't know. Always make a color chart. :)
The casing is actually pretty sturdy. I've bought colored pencils or watercolor pencils that cost way more tan these markers and the casing was meh. I love the case these makers came in. The markers stay in place and don't roll all over each other when closed or open. There's a button snap to close the case flush. The plastic flap that covers the markers has velcro to keep your markers from flying out. It keeps these markers in check. So whether you're traveling, storing them in your studio, or storing them anywhere, really, I really appreciate the thought Pentel put into the casing for these markers.
The brush tip is very firm, with very little give. From experience with ink micro pens, The more pressure applied over time, the less firm the brush gets, and over time the brush with start flexing. I do recommend patience in using these markers and to continue using them lightly. You can angle the markers for a broader coverage area or hold them vertically to get super fine detail coverage. I feel like i'm gushing over these markers, I find that I am! :))
None of my markers were dry. If anything they are loaded with pigment. When coloring in the owl and even making my color chart, as I made a simple line without lifting the marker off the paper, the excess pigment would make a teeny little blot where I left the excess ink. In my pictures, you can see a few lines, above where I tested the markers for dryness, where I had stroked the marker tip in a downward stroke and the excess ink looks like I stopped and held the marker there. I'll just have to remember to lift my hand if I want to prevent that in the future.
Overall, these aren't "THE perfect markers," but no art medium truly is. It's all on how you use the markers to make use of their full potential. These markers produce beautiful results and my inner-snobby-artist fell in love with Pentel for it.
If I had the time, I'd post a video later to show what I have learned on how to use these markers, but I found that if you do a video search you'll find similar tutorials that I myself watched before buying these.
My niece is a budding artist. So for me, Pentel has my utmost gratitude in delivering her (and myself) a product I am confident we can both use in various ways - which will currently be coloring in adult coloring books. :)
Reference colors for the owl, I used the following markers: #122 Yellow (eyes), #123 Gold Ochre, #123 Beige, #118 Dhark Brown, #127 Raw Umber
On the back of the casing, there is a numbered color name guide for each marker. Each marker has it's own number on it in gold.
Positives: handy storage case, plenty of ink
These color pens to me are more of the old school style thin markers. They're just fine to use as pens for writing colorful notes, lists or doodles, but unfortunately not the right marker for adult coloring books or art. Caps don't match colors at all, all of the colors are medium to dark/intense with no pastels for contrast and all bleed through paper.
I will stick with sharpee pastel permanent markers, these will be given to kids.
