Comments about Cretacolor Drawing Sets:
I got this set as a gift for someone who loves to sketch. Being a gift, the tin box was a really nice touch; and the pencils and other tools elicited a genuine "wow" and were immediately put to use. The quality of the pencils seemed to be very good indeed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Super set of pencils
from chitown, IL
I love this set of pencils. It has everything I need to start sketching again. I like the tin, it keeps them all together and easy to grab and go. When I use a pencil to it's nub, I can buy just one and put it in the tin.
Really nice set
I really like this set of pencils, chalk, blending stump and eraser. It has all the items I need to start sketching and it's all in one convenient place. The quality is very good. Now when I run down a pencil to nothing I can just buy one pencil at a time.
Love this set!

I tried this set at a workshop and had to have it. The pencils and sticks are so smooth and blend really well with water. I have no complaints!

My new favorite (Intermediate set)
I recently began a new phase of artwork requiring more traditional pigments and materials. This was the first set I bought for the new work. I got it for the colors alone, since I had never used Cretacolor before, and it turned out to be the perfect set. The hard pastels give you a beautiful and complete range of ochres and browns, and the sepia/sanguine pencils are the perfect complement. I'm glad they included black, white, and charcoal pencils, though I don't use the Aquarells much. The full range of these earthy colors is wonderful to see in one set, making them an excellent value if you work in those tones. If I could change one thing, it would be to replace one Aquarell with a Monolith graphite pencil.
