If there are some areas you want to accent, you can press a little harder on the crayon and end up with a darker, more intense color. This is another good reason to color lightly for full coverage. For example, in this picture of the heart below, I pressed harder when tracing the lines within the heart and in the vein and artery openings. I did the same thing when coloring the muscles and the brain.
Use varying amounts of pressure to create the illusion of shadows. This technique, referred to as shading, adds depth and dimension to your picture. Simply vary the amount of pressure that you are apply with your coloring utensil depending on how light or dark you’d like a given area to be. Pressure shading is easiest to do with pencil. While shading is completely optional, creating depth or shadows in your picture can make it appear more realistic and detailed.
Find a surface to color on. If you are using a loose leaf coloring page you will need to find a hard surface to work on, while coloring books allow you more flexibility. When using on loose sheets of paper, you may want to cover your work surface in newspaper depending on the coloring utensils you’ve chosen (markers may bleed through your paper and leave behind marks). When using coloring books, you can use your lap as a coloring surface if you’d like to draw while in bed on the couch, for example. You may still find it easier to have a more flat and solid surface to work on, though.
