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.
Quality Matters. Not all colored pencils are the same. Cheap colored pencils tend to have harder wax leads and less pigment which mean they produce less vibrant colors and have a tendency to leave some white spaces uncovered in the grain of the paper. Because the lead is hard, cheaper pencil leads often have a tendency break and if the lead breaks throughout the length of the pencil you can be left with something that is unusable.
