Decide what colors you are going to use. For example, you might want to only use cool colors (blues, purples, and dark greens) or only use warm colors (reds, oranges, yellows, and light greens). Or, you might prefer to use all of the colors of the rainbow in your picture. Regardless of the colors you choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look can help you create a picture you’re satisfied with.
You can start with a light layer of the color you want to use first. Then you can cover that with darker or lighter color to add life to your drawing, just like the wings on this butterfly. Then you can also create a texture effect. Just cover the drawing with a light stroke first then follow with rough, think strokes to serve as details / texture.
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.
