We've chosen sets that reflect the diverse needs of artists, which is why this list features medium-tipped pens for beginners and crafters, as well as fine-tipped markers that are made specifically for calligraphers and lettering experts. Another important factor in our selection process was the size of each set. There are collections here that reflect the full spectrum of colors and basic starter kits, too, that contain only foundational colors, such as the Tombow Fudenosuke.
