    Awesome pencils. The cores are super soft and creamy – very much like Prismacolor Premier pencils. Excellent blending and layering ability and rich, opaque pigment. Tested the white on top of a thick layer of dark green Luminance pencil, and the Cretacolor Mega’s white was just as good at adding white highlights as the white Luminance pencil. Because they have such thick cores, they do not sharpen to the thinnest point, so not good for tiny details, but excellent for covering larger areas. If Brevellier Cretacolor were to make these in regular sized pencils, and upped the colour range to at least 72, but preferably 120 colours, Prismas would finally have real competition. Note that the cores in the Cretacolor Karmina pencil range by the same manufacturer are not the same as these – the Karmina’s cores are medium soft, less pigmented, and they are overall just poorer quality pencils than these Cretacolor Mega’s. The thick barrels of these Mega’s are comfortable in the hand – good for arthritic hands that cannot hold the thinner barrels of regular pencils for long periods of time.
