Copic and Prismacolor Marker Collection by yuureikun Copic and Prismacolor Marker Collection by yuureikun
I just thought I would take a minute and share my collection of markers. Some I have had for years, while others I have collected over the past few months. They are all Copic Sketch, and Prismacolor Brush markers.

I am not sure how many people have heard of the brush markers from Prismacolor, they seem to be fairly new. I took a picture comparing the Prismacolor brush marker to a Copic Sketch. I find that the Prismas are excellent quality markers, and are actually quite a bit larger, thus holding more ink (though, they are not refillable). The art store near my house carries the Copic Sketch markers for $6 per marker, while the Prismacolor Brush markers are $4 per marker.

So, if you are on a tight budget and looking for some excellent quality markers, I highly recommend the Prismacolor brush markers. Unless, of course, you are looking for something that is refillable, or that works with the Copic airbrush system.

i like prismas because their felt-tips are pointed with a small one and a larger one, where as with copics there is only a large pointed tip (and a large angled square tip) so (for me) it makes it hard to get in really small areas, but i like copic because i find them easier to blend, and like you sai you can just refill them, so if it ever came down to a contest i just would not be able to choose hehe /)^.^(\

How's the Prismacolor brush nib compared to the Copic brush nib?

I saw those Prismacolor brush tip markers! I haven't tried them yet but I bet they're a lot of fun. I *really* just wish they'd put the chisel tip at the other end instead of the fine point. I love their chisel tip over Copic's thick tip, and that would have put them on top as king of markers! LOL :)

I use the Prisma brushes for most of what I do. I just really love how vibrant the colors are. Plus as an added bonus I can pickup the a duplicate of whatever color I need in the chisel tip markers if I need to lay down large areas of flat color first before shading and blending.

I actually really like the fine tip on the brush markers. I usually don't use a chisel tip unless I need to lay down a large, flat area of color (though I agree that Prisma's chisel tip blows away Copic's). I find that I use the brush 90% of the time and then the fine point to get little details here and there. But everyone has there differences. You obviously know your stuff, seeing as your work always comes out so incredible. I am still in awe of the original piece I bought from you!

What do you think about them?

yuureikun Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
I love them. Aside from them not being refillable and there being no airbrush system for them, I feel like they are easily as good as Copics. And I much prefer the small bullet nib they have, as opposed to the broad nib on the Copics.

Sachi-Tan Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thanks its good to know that there good aside from not having the broad tips for larger areas but thats why they still have regular ones. Would you say that they last longer than Copics though?

:iconyuureikun:
yuureikun Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
I haven't had them too long, but so far none of them have run out. By comparison I have already had to refill a few of my Copics. The markers themselves are larger than Copics, so I would say they hold more ink and last longer. But again, Copics are refillable, the Prismas aren't.

They seem to, I haven't had one run out yet. But I have had to refill some of my skin tone copics a few times already. They seem to hold quite a bit more ink. But again, Copics are refillable while the Prismas are not.

Prismacolor > Copic

I did a lot of marker work for a long time, tested various brands. Prisma was the best. I had a nerdgasm when I saw the new prisma brush tip markers. That was the only thing I ever wanted them to change.

I like Copics a lot, but I have to say I agree. I personally find the Prismas to be more vibrant, and I like the feel of them better (probably due to the bigger barrel). The brush tips are awesome on them, now if only they would make them refillable!

My biggest issue is just how long it takes copics to dry. I always smudge the bejesus out of them when I'm working, which of course, ruins the whole image. I guess that sort of thing can work for the picture now and then, but I generally like my stuff to dry quickly.

I've never run into that problem with any alcohol based marker. I have run into that problem with pretty much every brand of multiliner. I often get some smudging in areas with larger black fills if I run the marker over it, even after giving ample time to dry. :/

I am not sure how much the Copics cost me, as I acquired those over a few years. But I paid $312 for the big set of Prismas (each marker cost $2 at that price!).

Oh, man, I'm so jealous of you right now. Those markers seem really fun to use, but the craft store in the county where I live sells these at a ridiculously expensive price, even when there is a sale on them. ;__;
