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 find that they are more vibrant and tend to be more juicy. but the brush tip is just like a copic

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!
