Hi folks, Anyone try the new (I think) AK pencils? I just saw the YouTube video on them (with the robot voice - ???)
Looks interesting, but before I invest, I'd like to hear your collective opinions.

Thanks

I ordered the colors I wanted as singles. Despite the fact that I have both oils and pigments, I feel there is a time when a pencil will give me more control than I can get with either a paint brush or colored dusty stuff. For instance, when I try to do fine chipping with a brush, or a sponge, I get either rounded chips, or bigger chips than I want.

Hi Gary, I was looking at them the way you are. They might be valuable under the right conditions. When you get them Id love to hear how they work.
Thanks mate.
