i bought a set of 36 B ciao for much cheaper on amazon. they are still an investment though.. i am a beginner at using markers however i find them really fun to use! i recommend watching a ton of tutorials on youtube before you start using them to learn all the different tricks
Oh ok, hadn't even heard of those before, but I'll have to take a look. ^_^ Thanks for letting me know. And that's probably what I'll end up doing as I've never used these sorts of markers before either.
I know you're not asking me but I have quite a few and they work amazingly. Get the right paper though, more marker paper, they blend better my suggestion is by a set of grey from dickblick.com. Use them to blend and get the feel of them. If you're more comfortable and still like them, then try to add more colors. Dickblick is the best place online (in my opinion) because they have sales on them sometimes and even when they don't they are still cheap. hope that helped a bit!
