shankar subedi: does the output depend upon quality of paper? Heather rooney is using prisma colors can we get same output with derwent color pencils?
Nut Miñano: This is by far the most accurately explained review I've come across, thank you so much!! Honestly I've watched a lot and don't get me wrong I've learned from them as well, done by great artists, but you explain everything so precisely I've been able to understand and I think for someone who's not very experienced with colored pencils it's also really helpful 👍👍👍 looking forward to seeing more vids!
Marvelenia: Thank you for this Review! Can anybody say anything about the lightfastness of all of these pencils? Thank you so much!
Wednesday Rowan: I was looking for info, trying to purchase more "Cumberland Rexel Derwent water color (Orange chrome 10)" (was a gray pencil with an orange top), I was sold "Derwent watercolor (Orange chrome 10)" (a dark blue pencil pencil with an orange top silver band)... the later pencil is too hard, does not deposit enough color, not enough coverage (using for shrink plastic earrings) lots of broken lead too... it is as if they were waxy... same difference on paper (tried heating surface to see if deposits better, didn't) I was hoping to find the earlier pencil is still made... (maybe by cumberland or Rexel?)
sad, the way quality often changes... a product I used for years... no longer the same quality...
Prisma color went through the same thing some years ago...
Dolores Ungerleider: Excellent demo. Clear and concise explanations and I liked the visual techniques you used.
Judith A Rowland: What is the difference between the Derwent Studio Pencil and the Derwent Artist Pencil? I was given a full set of the Artist pencils and they are incredibly hard for me. Not like the old Artist pencil. Hepl! I have a light hand and can't do anything with them.
Lynn Todd: In my opinion after watching your video, the Derwent Studio is that it is much the same as the verithin by Prisma, its a very hard core pencil .They are great for detail work since they are so fine (verythin no pun intended ;)
I too have older eyes, so must use reading glasses when I draw or color..
Give them a try in lieu of your Derwent Studio next time :)
G.D. Romanov: Great review!
Alba Whiteman: I checked a brochure on the derwent studio pencils and they are mainly NOT lightfast, so they are only for prepress works or journals that don't see the light of day.The verithin being a bit paler in appearance would serve well in underdrawings with the softer more intense colours layered on top . The prismacolor premiers ; I've heard nothing but complaints about because they keep breaking and about half of them are NOT lightfast which is a bummer since they call themselves artists' quality. The derwent coloursofts fare a bit better ; 56/72 colours are lightfast with the pinks and purples being suspect, largely. I wish these manufacturers would live up to their reputations.This is why I would prefer to pay more for quality products that have some sort of honesty eg Caran d'Ache, Faber Castell, Cretacolor , which I notice seem to have some sort of german quality control ...Switzerland, Germany and Austria respectively......
Puffy Jo: canadian store deserres has open stock on all these plus faber castell and they are all sharpened. thanks for the comparison between these pencils. the faber castell is amazing best of the bunch , of well i have the 132 of the premieres and i have no intention in buying any more BUT when the premieres mess up I will replace with open stock with the faber castells for sure too bad they are so darn expensive 2.49 a pencil yikes
Zoe E Lopez: This is very helpful! Thanks!!
Nickelini: Verithins are designed for detail, lettering and outlining. I wouldn't use them for anything else.
zainalu: Hi Gisele!Nice review!Should I be worried about internal breakage in these pencils? Would you recommend them for someone who is just starting out with colore pencils?
NotOrdinaryInGames: Prismacolors ARE slippery. I used them myself, and it's hard to do details.
tammynwes: Diecast Jam-I can totally believe that Coloursoft would be scratchy! On the last bit, when she's doing the blue squares for try out, the Coloursoft sound SO scratchy, more scratchy than the verithins. Ooohhh, I couldn't even think of buying derwent now (the reason for watching this "mini" video), as that awful scratchy sound would drive me bonkers!
Kristina Petersen: Experiment with the Polychromos pencils by Faber Castell. I've only started working with them now, but they are really good and define details very well, with what little progress I've made. Highly recommended. :)
AndeloGame: just do it
daynab2: If you buy Faber Castell polychromos on Amazon, you can buy them in open stock and they are a lot less money. I ask not affiliated with Amazon in any way, I've just started buying supplies from them because I can get almost anything. polychromos have all the good qualities of these pencils all in one brand.
connie j Kruse: I can get all those in open stock here in California ..
