A few ways to tell your marker is dry--- (1) if it screeches across the paper and does NOT glide like silk  (2) if the tip of your nib is turning white  (3) if it doesn't blend like it did before, but drags your color or creates mottled/sticky spots...then it needs to be replaced.  For sketch you can add 28 drops and it will not be overfilled but just enough for a lot more coloring.  If you add too much you waste your ink and you have to drip it out.
