I first got my Mincho metallic pens two winters ago. I wanted to draw metallic looking jewelries. Instead of trying to render it with pencils, I decided to take the short route. This is where the Mincho metallic markers come in. Aside from these pen markers, Mincho has other type of color markers. Some focus on helping to render skin. Drawing skin on paper is a tricky matter. If done incorrectly, the skin can come out with an unnatural color. Aside from Markers, Mincho also did a watercolor set, and a sketch pencils.
