As an art group, we expose ourselves as much as possible to various tools and materials present in the market. It is one of the best ways of finding the tools you are most comfortable. Not only that, but it would also be helpful in your own art journey. Correct?

It is a first for us to participate in something like this. We are very much excited!

This is something new to us and we hope we could give you a guide that would be useful as a reference for you in your future purchases.

We’re here to share our most honest thoughts and opinion about these. ☺️

The Packaging

Here’s how it looks when I opened the box

Packaging is really nice. It arrived in a white box with a red wrapper inside. Unraveling it was giving us a feeling of an early Valentine’s Day already.

For people like us, we love to receive art materials especially markers and even papers as gifts! It may not be the grandest but it’s one of the most loving gestures.

How the pens look

Once unboxed, this is how they look!

NeoSketch markers have two tips. One broad or chisel tip which is good for gothic calligraphy or even italics. The other tips is fine or brush tip which can be used for touch-ups, brush strokes and even illustrating!

For artists like us, these markers are great for doodling, sketching, illustrating and even lettering or calligraphy.

How convenient, right?

Using the NeoSketch Markers

The NeoSketch Markers
When Kristine tried these pens out, she used Limelight’s SketchBook which has thick papers that can cater to the inks of various brush pens.

So now, let’s go on to what she discovered when she tried these out:

  • It’s easy to use in terms of writing, doodling and even illustrating.
  • Mixing may be done pen to pen and also with the use of a waterbrush pen.
  • It is blendable with water, it may be used as a watercolor and aid you to create gradients. From a single color provided in the label, blending it will allow you to discover and create a new palette.
  • The ink is water-based therefore it does not emit or possess any odor. Moreover, inks are very pigmented and really show the true color on the covers.
  • Brush tips is flexible and soft so if you’re going to use it, be careful not to damage it. Light pressure may be needed.
  • Price wise, it is very affordable. At Php 525 ($ 10 roughly), you can have a dozen of markers!

Those are the pros about the markers and here are the cons to these markers:

  • When she opened the pens and tried them, she noticed that there were small frays but she shrugged it off and continued writing. It still produced wonderful outcome!
  • In layering your strokes, paper may get little tears so it’s advisable to let the first layer dry out first before writing down the second layer.

For more details on how to use it, here’s a video.

The outcome

Here’s the output of what she wrote on a Limelight Sketchbook using Filed’s NeoSketch markers. Some may need time in figuring out the best way for them to use it but once you do, you’ll get the hang of it.

Frankly, these markers are part of my favorites now!

It’s easy to use, very affordable and truly very friendly to aspirants and artists! And I’m recommending it to you!Β πŸ’™

    Honestly, I clicked cause this reminded me of the careline kiss sticks that I reviewed last month in my blog!. They look so similar! And just like these neo pens, the kiss sticks are also dual purpose, with a lippie sharpener at the end LOL. I love these markers though because they have that double tip that I think is great for those practicing with markers for their sketches… I myself use charcoal pencils but once in a while I like to use markers for coloring my drawings and for this to have two types of tips is great cause it is a multi purpose product. I trust there are no accidents when you stored these in your case or bag right? πŸ˜€
