mermaidsandangels asked: Which markers do you prefer Copics or Prismacolours and why? I'm looking into getting some myself and I don't know which to get!
Oof, this is tough! All markers have something good to offer, it sorta depends on what type of coloring you’re looking to do. My favorite markers are Chartpaks. They’re usually a bit less expensive than other brands. The colors are super vibrant and the ink stays wet for a long time, so they’re super easy to blend, and do great if you need to color in large spaces. The downside is that they bleed a LOT. So you have to either embrace the slightly messy look or be reeeeally careful. They’re also pretty stinky, which I like, but is a downside for some.
Copics are great because they come in a million perfect colors, and they are easy to control. They’re wonderful for layering colors and adding lots of fine detail, and they don’t bleed much at all. The brush tip is also a nice drawing tool. Their downside (in my opinion) is that the ink dries fast on the paper, making it harder to color in large spaces.
Prismacolors are kind of in the middle I suppose? They bleed more than Copics but are easier to control than Chartpaks.
Maybe buy a couple individual markers to play with before buying one of those expensive sets? Or just buy a bunch of all the types and go nuts! :]

Crappy news, I’m not going to be attending New York Comic Con later this month. I know I’m missing out on an amazing opportunity to meet new people and spread the word about my comics, but after work, moving, and everything else that’s been going on, a New York vacation would delay my progress on Camp W almost another whole week. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, but I think it’s a necessary one. If you’re going to NYCC, make sure to stop by Maki and Mac’s booths at booths V6 and V7 in Artist Alley and say hello!
