The demonstration uses Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils tin of 12, showing how very versatile these colors are. Even in the tutorial, you can almost see how smooth and creamy they are.

If you prefer more colors, which means even more diversity, try a larger set; Prismacolor Premier comes in sets of 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 96, 132, and the newest set of 150 which includes neon colors. If you are serious about drawing, I would recommend the set of 150, because then your palette is practically endless with combinations.
