This is dope. I like the background colors. I'm curious about the oil marker. Would like to try that out.

They are pretty cool and different brands do different things, for example:

The UNI opaque oil based markers are pretty cool. I like the big broad tipped one the best because of the various line qualities you can achieve. Just don't overlap the fine fine tip one with the broad tipped one on the same painting and use the Krylon 1303 acrylic spray coating....the fine tipped markers are really strong and will show through large areas of spotted blacks on your painting (drawing the head with the fine and coloring the hair with the broad)

Wal-Mart sells an inexpensive acrylic based paint marker (ELMER'S opaque paint markers) that is really cool that has really strong tips that can handle the canvas better and you get more control over your lines on smaller paintings.
