Prismacolor Premier Double-Ended Art Markers Manga Set review

Since I had a fairly positive experience rediscovering some newer Prismacolor markers, I went ahead a got the full Manga set of double ended markers to complement my matching set of Manga illustration markers. The illustration markers are ideal for sketching and creating cartoon images, and the double ended markers are great for coloring them swiftly and boldly with their versatile broad nibs.
The Manga set of 12 double ended markers strikes the right balance of bright colors and lighter skin hues for coloring cartoon characters effectively with a limited palette. It is a good starter set that could easily be expanded with some grey markers and some favorite colors from the open stock racks that are fairly common in most Arts & Crafts stores or through any of the many reliable online retailers. One of the main advantages of using Prismacolor products is their widespread distribution, so it is fairly easy to find replacement markers and new single colors to customize your working palette.
Both Prismacolor Manga sets of Illustration markers and Double ended markers would make a nice present for a budding artists with an interest in Manga-style illustration. Middle school and High School students (and even supervised responsible younger children) would likely enjoy the variety of line widths of the set of 8 Illustration markers and the well-balanced starter palette of the Manga set of 12 double ended markers.
