    I'm not a big fan of stealing high end art supplies. The good stuff is only at selected stores and personally I don't want to get banned for stealing stuff. Art is my drug and if I got banned from my drug store and wanted some new fresh felt colors or whatever I would look pretty stupid standing outside with my loot asking some nanny to bootleg my pens because I was stupid enough to rip them off and get banned.
    If your gonna steal, hit the big stores. If you're really passionate about urban arts and excelling your skillz you need to realize that the pimping art stuff ISN'T at walmart but at specialty art stores who are mostly independently owned. Kinda like buying NY thins, if you steal from the only store in town that sells them and you get banned from the store you're stuck. Although if Walmart started selling caps they'd be robbed blinder than the 5cent aisle at 7/11. Lots of people steal Krylon but not many writers steal Montana's-its a respect thing.

    :ph34r: if you steal your art supplys, and get caught and youve allready been caught for graff, you are just giving graffiti a worse name than it all ready has, and we dont need that kinda publisity. but as for me i use gel markers, or i use this matelic marker my art teacher gave me, it doesnt leak through, i dont know what there called, but you get them at office depot for like .90 cents, but there like half the size of 'on the run' markers and run out fast.

    COPIC markers are the most high quality marker i have ever used. They blend well and work awsome details. They are refillable and the inl lasts preaty long. they dont fade or smudge.

    However they are like $6.50 a pop and that a heavy price for a blackbook marker, and their difficult to rack if ur not a pro :p

    damn... :angry: .... what the fuck is up with all you k1dS that be buying your shit at the store... ever heard of coping your shit....??? <_< also...other markers that are opaque like deco markers are "painters" you can get them at Aaron Brothers or Michaels or Joan's.... most likely to be in the marker section next to the deco or where they have the markers that shake. They are exactly like deco's except without the whole runing thru the page problem.

    ...If u use Prismas then u already got the top-notch B-Book markers. Gel pens are good 2 but they take forever cuz the flow is so small

    What i use alot is the Kimberly Watercolor Pencilsyou could make theme as bold as you want(first otline with color pincil then get a extra fine brush and dip in water then go ove the out line)or you could damp the paper with a sponge and make a fade with the color pincil.then you could blend the colors together.But you dont have to use water all the time you could use them like regular color pencils.they cost like 5.00(12 colors in a box)

    Sakura Pigment ink markers (permapaque), there not paint but are milky and look really good and opaque and they are double tipped so you can use the bullet nib on one side and chisel tip on the other
