Touchfive Marker Pens for Doodling!

30.3.17

Assalamualaikum haiiiii

The previous post was about Paint Tool SAI, this one is about markers!

Remember that I mentioned Copic markers in the previous post? Haaa, since Copic markers are quite expensive, so I found another cheaper brand. On Lazada. I searched for Copic there, too but the price masyaAllah boleh lepas yuran satu semester.



Browsing the website (Lazada) for markers similar to Copic, I found this one brand, TouchFive. Being Fifiey, I usually don't go for small numbers la I go big. Go big or go home. So, I go big. I found the 80 color set for RM109 something. I consulted Alya beforehand, tho, whether TouchFive could be trusted (for doodles and sketches) and she said something like YES I SAW TUTORIALS ON YOUTUBE PEOPLE USING TOUCHFIVE BUY FIEY BUY!!!

So I tried to buy the one with RM109 but I tried and tried and tried, tapi tak boleh. I don't know why. There was a lot of options to choose from, just search for TouchFive on Lazada. I wanted the 80 color set so I found the right one for RM135.

This the one, you can see my review on the product (scroll down)

I took a screenshot of the product today, so the price has gone lower now hmmmmm go buy la. If you wanna make sure the product is the same as mine, you can scroll down at the bottom and see two people giving reviews. Fifiey Azmi is one of them yeahhh

It states there the item ships from overseas, so it might take some time for it to reach your doorstep. I got the markers after 10 days like that. The package actually arrived at a post office in Terengganu a week after I confirmed my booking, but it got stuck there for days. I called the post office and went there myself to pick it up (tak sabar ok).

TADAAAA!

I'm satisfied with the markers because I finally can color my drawings with something other then COLOR PENCILS!!!!! AND WATERCOLORS!!!! I suck at coloring (both using color pencils and watercolors) but alcohol-ink based markers are what I *think* I'll be good at! I don't know. We'll see.

What I'm not satisfied is... IT GOT 24 SHADES OF GREY WHAT THE HECK WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH 24 SHADES OF GREY

I need more pink/red/orange/yellow/green/blue/purple shades T_T

OK sila bersyukur please

But anyway, I got excited and... I didn't know what to DOODLE, and if there's no DOODLE, no COLORING, no USING TOUCHFIVE MARKERS. I asked Alya on what to do with this, so she suggested that I do the erm listings of the colors?

This one

24 freaking shades of grey

My first try of using these markers was doing the seven days of the week using different styles or fonts or typeface I don't know the specifics guys come on. I mostly tried to blend the colors and it worked great for the one with Pastel Blue and Turqoise Blue, the others are just hmmmmmmmmmmm I need to try blending more.

I also can't brain the three shades of purple, Pastel Violet, Azalea Purple and Pale Purple (refer the previous image). Those are ALL PINK I DON'T SEE PURPLE ANYWHERE help

Dakwat dia macam lebih serap kat kertas, so if you're gonna use them, make sure lapik kertas kotor under the one yang you nak warna guna marker tu. Pro tip for blending: make sure to use the darker color before the lighter one, and don't wait until the dark one (not Rumplestiltskin) dries to blend with the lighter one, it won't be as good.

Since I didn't know what to draw and I was craving for pizza, so I drew pizza... and Shinbei from Ninja Boy. Who doesn't love pizza? :P


Yang sebelah tu aku dah lama buat, cuma baru warna je. Saja nak test warna guna marker tu. Still tak smooth warna muka tu, macam orang ada penyakit kulit huhu.

By the way, aku kan ada koleksi Sharpie banyak warna jugak (takdela sampai 80 ahaks) and I was searching for grey Sharpies since forever hah sekarang dapat 24 jenis warna kelabu guna la sampai puas


The markers also come with a bag. Simple je beg dia. Muat-muat je untuk 80 batang marker pen tu. Ada pemegang lagi. Cuma dia macam messy sikit la marker-marker dalam tu sebab beg tu macam pencil case biasa je.


Overall, I would rate this product 3.5/5 for quality but because I'm excited let's just give it a 4.5/5! I'll try to get a couple of Copic markers to compare with these. And stay tuned for more doodles! Hehehe

BYE!
