i've been coming across lots of online reports that Prismacolor is the most popular colored pencil around here, but quality is going down. The pencils above are still fairly long, but you can see how they've been sharpener-chewed. i could say it's just me, but the older ones, which other artists acknowledge are better, don't have this problem, nor do they break internally. And i know i've dropped those 30 year old pencils numerous times!
So i've been collecting way too many different brands, and i think Faber Castell Polychromos are my new favorite.
But OH look at the coverage from the white "Cadillac":
|That would be the Caran d'Ache Luminance, by the way.|

(these last two are the same artist, Lachri, the first is a single, recent video, and the second is older, with serveral videos)
