The markers are a dual tipped, alcohol markers. One side is a 7mm wide chisel and the other, although labeled as ‘fine’ is a bullet tip. The ink flow is smooth & even on the bullet tip and the colors are heavily opaque, in contrast to Copics which are generally translucent.
For the price of the markers, they make a fair option for students but not professional artists. Issues like inconsistencies the the manufacture of the chissel tip cause uneven flat lines, and the markers are expected to bleed on nearly every paper.
The Brush pens are not technically brush; they are tapered felt tip pens with flexible nibs. They come in a pack of 12, including one neon yellow color that could pass for a highlighter. Upon using the pens for basic calligraphy practicing, we noticed that the nibs softened from their original form and continued to become less stable through just a few pages of use.
This pack comes with pens in nine variations: 0.05 mm, 0.1 mm, 0.2 mm, 0.3 mm, 0.4 mm, 0.5 mm, 0.6 mm, 0.8 mm and a brush pen.
The great thing about this set is that nib thickness varies enough to tell the difference between the pens. Sure, the 0.1 and 0.2 are very close in thickness, but one can still see the minute differences between them. I am particularly fond of 0.05 mm pen. It makes it so much more interesting to draw and shade with such thin lines. I would have liked to have seen more of a difference between the 0.6 and 0.8 nibs though.

This set consists of six pre-sharpened drawing pencils with leads variations of HB, 2B, 3B, 4B, 6B and 9B.
These pencils don’t look that great (if you’re the person who likes their art materials to look interesting). The dark green body is only embellished by gold lettering that reads High Quality Drawing Pencils. Words that shouldn’t be taken at face value.
