I’m still a beginner, I started out with a smaller set from another brand and just kinda fell in love with the medium. So I decided to get the 216 set of ohuhu, and I must say I am even more in love now. The markers are not streaky, they blend beautifully and the colors are transparent, bright and soft all ar the same time lol. I respect ohuhu immensely as a company because they actually listen to their customer suggestions and wants and release amazing quality products. I can’t compare them to copics as I don’t own any…yet, but for a complete beginner like myself, this has exceeded all of my expectations. I will forever be an ohuhu customer. Their marker pad is amazing as well. You just can’t go wrong with this brand. And on top of all of that, the customer service is A+++.
