    Gotta get my hands on a Prisma 20% Grayscale marker. They don't feel or perform streaky at all for me O.o.

    I'd super picky, though. You're into the concept style of art, which allows for some minimal streak, but once you want to do some serious smooth shading, well. Things get a little tricky with the lighter colors.

    You're right, they're better for really sharp parts. I don't even know HOW you'd go about soft shading, you'd have to stack up various percentages, and that's just too much. Easily accomplished in any drawing program.

    Exactly why half the time I want to burn my traditional commissions because it'd be fifty times easier in digital format.

    You should switch to colored pencils. The Prismacolor colored pencils are great! These:



    ...not the harder colored pencils.

    I liked to use Prismacolor pencils and a clear marker blender over it. The pencil is somewhat water-soluble, so the blending marker tops it off well if I don't want to murk up vibrant tones with a white colored pencil.

    And I agree; Prismacolor Scholars are awful. D:

    I've used the PColor colored pencils, they're crazy vibrant...it's easy to go overboard and make things a bit too saturated lol.

    I'm really boring and bought a set of neutral tones just to avoid making things eye-searing all the time. XD

    I also like Faber-Castell's pastel pencils. They're really chalky, though, and very difficult to fix to smooth surfaces, such as paper vellum or Bristol board. ): I don't really own paper with a lot of tooth, which sucks.
