R02 is an important shade, kind of unremarkable on its own but incredibly useful for anybody wanting to create realistic portraiture and nuanced tones and shades by blending with other copic markers.
The Copic Wide Marker is the number one art tool for colouring large areas with a consistent stroke. Their best application is in backgrounds and landscapes, but they have plenty of other great uses too: calligraphy, architectural design, graffiti, product rendering, journalling and even highlighting, depending on your writing instruments. Because of the broad tip (2cm strokes), you can achieve multiple layers of shading with the one marker and multiple point widths by choosing which surface of the marker contacts your paper.
The alcohol based ink is permanent and non-toxic. It dries acid-free (archival quality) and can be used to blend with Copic Sketch or Copic markers. Any two copic markers can be blended together to create new shades and nuances of colour. You can pallet-blend on acetate, achieve multiple degrees of shading and generally explore colour like never before!
The tips are of astounding quality - they do not fluff or break no matter how roughly treated they are and you can rub any two tips together to create a new colour. This doesn't tarnish either marker and each will quickly return to its perfect, normal self. Copic wide nibs are replaceable too, but you probably won't need to replace them.
