Actually the concept was thought of a week beforehand and the drawing took slightly more than an hour to complete. However learning how to use iMovie on my smartphone, selecting free music from YouTube music library and then figuring out how to transfer the music took like a whole day...
YouTube video and review, a few trolls kept insisting that I used it the wrong way. So here I will emphasise that I had used it correctly: THE MIXING CHAMBER SHOULD BE AT THE TOP (as seen from their pamphlets). The brown marker that I had used in my first impression demo video was faulty. Chameleon sent me a replacement afterwards that works fine.
What I like about the markers:
- Able to achieve gradation using one marker.
- Do not need to spend money to purchase more colours and tones.
What I don't like about the markers:
- Have to wait for the colour to blend.
- Not sure how long the light tone will last.
- Cannot colour large area with light even tone.
I would say if you illustrate for crafts (like greeting cards/ scrapbooking) or if your illustrations don't have much background to colour, you can totally consider buying the deluxe set with 22 colours and that is all you pay and can get gradation at the same time. However, if you want to work fast, prefer even tones and have large area of light tones to colour, I would still recommend COPIC.
