You can get two different airbrush effects with the [Sketch] markers: the chisel nib gives a fine spray and the brush nib gives small speckles. And something that surprised me is that airbrushing uses very little ink.

Go have fun with your Copics investment I would suggest that you check out this Copics blog: I Like Markers for lots of techniques info and info re: Copics classes. These talented folks teach all over the United States - it's just a matter of waiting for a class to come to a location that works for you. I took their beginner class. Now I'm waiting for the advanced class and they also are now offering a mixed media class.

Update: Copics classes are being offered in Indianapolis, IN on March 1 and 2.

I'm just a crafter and not affiliated with Copics in any way; just trying to help you get the most out of your Copics investment.
Love airbrushing too! Got mine at Harbor Freight with a coupon. Finally now feeling competent enough with my markers that I may be airbrushing some RC cars for my family.
