Hi bmohnsen,

I haven't tried them myself, but their price is definitely more attractive than Copics! It looks like the Tombows are water-based markers which means that they won't bleed through the paper as much as their alcohol-based counterparts like Copic and Prismacolor, but will be more streaky and less easy to blend. Copic markers are a big investment, but the ink is refillable, so over time they will be cost saving.

The markers you buy will depend on your preferences and budget – how often you think you'll use them and how professional you need the finished drawings to be.

I hope this has been helpful!
