Why alcohol markers?
Markers provide bright, cheerful, juicy ink flow. They blend almost like paint, yet much easier to use. You don’t need a glass with water, any solvents or special media to make it flow better or dry faster. You don’t need anything else, but your markers.

The number of colours is up to you, my recommendation is to get at least two-three tones of the following colours:
- yellow (light yellow, medium yellow, dark yellow)
- orange (light orange, medium orange, dark orange)
- red (light red, medium red, dark red)
- pink (light pink, medium pink, dark pink)
- green (light green, medium green, dark green)
- blue (light blue, medium blue, dark blue)
- brown (light brown, medium brown, dark brown)
three - six tones of Grey colour.
For example, in the Copic lines they named as Cool Grey 00, Cool Grey 01, Gool Grey 03, Cool Grey 05, Cool Grey 07 and Cool Grey 09.
As well, they have the same tonal gradation with Warm Grey.
You can get both sets. Although for beginning it might be enough to get either Warm or Cool Grey set of markers. You can get 3-6 tones of Cool Grey or 3-6 tomes of Warm Grey.
