Comments about Derwent ProColour Colored Pencils:
I expected more out of these pencils, but i am a novice and it could be my skill. These were very hard to apply and blend. Colors were very soft, pastel like. I prefer a different brand at the time but will come back to these.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased a few of the colored pencils to test out. I was very surprised by the lay down of color. They work exceptionally well with the studio color pencils. Works well different types of paper textures. Have a lot of colored pencils, do not sure if I will purchase a full set. Theses would be great in anyone's colored pencil collection.
These are "hard" to work with!
from Prince George, VA
All who use this medium were all quite excited for these finally to arrive in the Summer of 2017. I'll get right to the point as far as my professional opinion: Pros: - A well built pencil with a nice solid core. - Good for any area you would use a Prismacolor Verithin forCons: -This is a hard pencil and maintains a good point but you really have to apply pressure to get a nice lay-down of pigment. A better pencil would be the Caren D'Ache Pablo. A nice hard point but lays down pigment effortlessly. -The light fast ratings could be a little better for the price they askI would recommend them for small tight areas that require precise contours but not a lot of color work or shading
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very happy with this purchase
from Grandview, TX
Only the second complete from the get go set of colored I have ever purchased,and I'm happy that I did. There was a color missing from the set, and Blick sent the missing one for free. Yeah! Looking forward to using these pencils for a long time.

I ordered 21 and now have placed an order for all of them.

from Hanford, Ca
They work great with the Derwent Soft Color and Prisma. They are firmer than the Soft Color and hold a point which is great for small areas.

LOVE THESE PENCILS!!
from Birmingham, AL
I have bought numerous sets of really expensive professional pencils and am so happy to have found these. And love that I FINALLY found this site so I could buy them individually and build my set as I can. These pencils are so smooth, the color lays down well, and they just feel good in your hands. I color for hours at a time and never tire of these pencils. I've only had one to break during coloring but that was my fault. No problems with sharpening either. Just love them and if you ever get a chance to try them, you should!

Hard as nails!
from Prince George, Va
These are well built pencils with a core about as large as polychromos. They aren't all lightfast or near lightfast so do your research when buying these in open stock. They are hard and remind me of a large example of a "Verithin" pencil by Prismacolor. You really need to press to get a nice transfer of pigment onto your paper. They have a good use for sharp edges and lines but their not great for shading...esp over large areas. They work great with the company's Coloursoft line. So I have about 20 of these and they are more of a specialized use pencils. Not my go to for standard work.

from Lakeland FL
Let me start by saying I'm not an artist. So the lightfastness has never been an issue for me. They are a harder pencil and so the technique is different than with a softer one. Layers nicely, blends well, overall pretty good pencils. I love the point they hold for detail work. My only complaint, that some of the pale colors are almost too pale. But I just use these as I would the white pencil for blending or burnishing. This was a happy purchase.

Nice pencils but a little hard
from Nesconset, NY
These are very nice pencils but a little hard for me, but I am very light-handed. They would be perfect for someone who is heavy-handed as they are highly pigmented and don't leave any "pencil dust". You can apply a lot of pressure without them breaking and I haven't had any problems sharpening them. They keep a nice, firm point.

Derwent Pro Color Colored Pencils
from Tampa, FL
I only have a few pencils to text them out and so far I like them. Kind of like Polychromos. So I would recommend them.
