I've never used them for anything other than colouring stamped images. Occasionally, I draw a teensy tiny bit and then I use them to colour what I've drawn.

I simply went with Copics because I was unaware of the other markers out there, like Spectrum Noir, Bics, etc. Although I would say I'm happy with my choice. I colour a LOT. I see drawing as a tedious burden, and colouring as my reward for having drawn something. Stamps are even better - I love colouring stamped images (no drawing needed!). I have coloured so much since I got my Copics that I have refilled some markers three or four times already. I've lost count of how often I've refilled my blender pen. Now, it IS a hobby with me as well, but it's a HEAVY-duty hobby - one that I love and one where I turn down other activities to preserve enough time for. I knew I would colour a LOT, so I had no problem sinking in lots of money (a little at a time) into Copics.

I have never used Spectrum Noir or Bics, but might like them just as well as Copics.
