What is the first thing i did with them when I got home? Tested the colors against the sharpies I already had. I should have saved those test scraps... I just wanted to see where in the spectrum these new shades fell.
The second thing I did, assign the colors personalities of course. I liked the packaging design - black background letting the colors pop out.
So there they are - The sharpie kids. The set includes
Leg Warmer Orange - A decent addition to my collection I see myself using this as a nice middle shade between sharpies 2 orange tones I already have
Banana clip yellow - This one, to me, makes the set worth it. It's still a nice light yellow but it has light orangy tone.
Jellie Pink - 2nd favorite. It's not as neon as sharpies rosey pink but still bright and light. I use so much pink when drawing i was excited to have this.
Argyle Green - sort of a boring shade, might come in useful but i expected these colors to be BRIGHT and this one was a little bit of a let-down.
Valley-Girl Violet: The biggest disappointment. It's just so DARK in person it's hard to see it against the black background.
Yeah so the Yellow and pink have already gotten the most use and i dont see myself using that violot color much. The drawing was super fun to do. I did feel like a huge nerd doing it though... I wont even get into it but, yeah i felt a little bit like I was personifying the markers/making them my fiends/going off the deep end, ya know?
Anyway stay tuned tomorrow for some sassy kids w/attitude. PEACEOUT
