This is a well-known brand, specialized on graffiti artist, therefore I expected more. The marker is ok, but the blending ability could be better and a lot of the colors are difficult to layer. They don´t become much darker which normally markers do. They can also become a bit grainy on some paper. The color can however cover quite large area without being streaky. I would not recommend these markers for portraits, but for more “coloring in” drawings they work very well.

When I first bought a set of twelve I wasn’t sure what I thought about it so I bought 24 more. I think that unfortunately this is often true; it is difficult to judge a marker if you only own a few, at least if it isn’t an obviously problems with them.
