How to Draw with Crayons Like a Boss. There's nothing more inspiring to me than buying and opening up a brand new box of Crayola crayons. I think anyone with an ounce of artistic ability fondly remembers coloring as a child. Just the word coloring makes me happy.
Brighter results! Applying less pressure to the pencil will produce a lighter color, so how do you get that darker hue of the color on the page without pushing too hard? The answer is layers. Once you have mastered coloring between the lines with a nice even shade, you can take the same pencil and go back over that coloring again to provide a second or even third layer of color. Applying extra layers of color will remove some of the white grain that was missed in the first layer and bring depth to your color. Mix up the direction you color each layer to produce a smoother finish.
