Bring Your Characters To Life With Color

Don't get me wrong, I think pencil sketches are beautiful and I'm always amazed at the shading and texture and artist can create with just one pencil and a piece of paper.

Even Manga sketches are cool when they're just black-and-white. But if you really want to make your Chibis pop, you need to add some color.

And not just any color. Don't head to the stationery aisle for a set of Sharpies or Crayola colored pencils. Those products are not designed for coloring your professional quality drawings. They're made for use in those cheesy kids' coloring books or for marking your name on the inside tag of your underwear.

You need professional quality Prismacolor Premier Manga Colored Pencils to color your Manga characters. Use them to draw bold, vibrant strokes of color or soften your touch and shade your Chibi's cheeks.

Blending, shading, and even burnishing are all easy - and you get much better results - when you use Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.

Why Use Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils For Your Sketches?

Prismacolor Premier colored pencils are not to be confused with the colored pencils you bought your kids to take to school. These are professional quality art pencils and there's a big difference between the Prismacolor pencils and that box of 150 colors your kids use.

For one thing, the leads are thicker and heavier. They're designed to work with the teeth of the paper for improved blending and shading capabilities.

And the colors are vibrant and true, and highly resistant to fading.

If you've never worked with a professional quality colored pencil before you're going to be amazed at your results. Be sure to watch the video above for tips and guidelines to help you get the most from your Prismacolor Premier colored pencils.

Prismacolor 12 Marker Set Manga

Each of the markers in this 12 marker set of Prismacolor Manga colors is doulbe-tipped. There's a fine point tip on one end and a wedge tip on the other. Both ends draw from the same ink supply so you'll always have the same color.

At first glance you might not think that 12 colors are enough. But once you learn how to use and blend marker colors you'll see you really have a lot more than just 12 colors.

Get ready because your Manga Monsters are about to jump off the page!

These are definitely not your standard Big Box Store markers. First, they last forever.

And second, the colors are so vibrant and vivid and they don't ever fade. To test it, just start dating your drawings and then go back and compare in a few months.
