Here’s a short little review comic I did about Prismacolor colored pencils, and how sad it makes me that they’ve been declining in quality over the years! I’ve mostly switched over to Polychromos by now (and will be 100% converted by the next ATCF chapter break), and they’re definitely great pencils, but I think I’m always going to miss the old Berol Prismacolors I got to draw with as a little kid.

Incidentally, one of the reasons I decided to draw this comic is because I’ve heard Prismacolor sometimes uses my work in promotional presentations they give at comic cons. I don’t mind them doing it too much (I *did* use their products for many years!), but just want to set the record straight that I don’t use their pencils anymore, and don’t recommend them to other artists :/

Also, if anyone’s interested in seeing my mom’s colored pencil work (which I mentioned in this comic), she’s still an active artist and art teacher out in California: http://artof2sisters.com

    I’ve had prismacolors for 10 years, I never really cared for them. I really want a set of polychromos.
