    I’m about to make the switch from prismacolors to chartpaks but need to do it on a student budget.


    So, for those out there who use chartpak, what are your favorite and most used markers? Least used?

    Great list Henry! I would suggest getting a couple Willows…I used that color the most by far!

    I use:

    willow green for grass

    grass, nile, and emarald green for trees

    flesh blush and brick red for colorful trees

    buff and a couple of diff warm grays for site elements

    cool gray #5 for shadows

    a blue for water

    Then I have a bunch of pencils that I color over with.

    deep evergreen


    slate green

    leaf green

    apple green

    grass green


    I switched to Copic Sketch Markers per Richard Scotts graphic workshops found at

    They have changed my coloring abilities forever and are awesome.  You should check them out sometime.
