    prismas are good but they dry up fast and dont last long, especially if you use them in sketchbooks, use marker paper of smooth copy paper, tria markers might be better, they are re fillable and more juicy from what i hear, as in last longer.

    I use prismacolor warm grays but only because those seem to be all that's available in my area. I haven't tried anything else but I can definitely say that prismas do dry up very quickly.

    I use Copic markers, they are great, though you have to change the nibs pretty often if you use them for sketching. The ink runs out pretty fast to and the refills aren't very cheap. They don't dry to fast either so you can make diffrent tones blend quite nicely...
