Many colorists recommend coloring in small circles, and while this is a great method, its not the only way to achieve even colors. The important thing is to return to old pencil strokes and go over them again, but in a different direction. If you always color back-and-forth as you move your pencil across the page, you end up with a grainy, directional texture in your colors. This is noticeable on its own, but becomes especially glaring when two different areas with different directional textures meet up.
Keeping your hand towards the tip of the pencil should feel more natural, and it will give you more control. Its a great grip for coloring little details, as you can carefully move the point of your pencil into the tiny nooks and crannies between lines. However, dont be afraid to try moving your hand towards the back of the pencil sometimes. When you grip the pencil further back, you can color in a wider arc and cover a larger area of the page. What you lose in control, you gain in mobility. This is a great grip for laying down a lot of color in a short amount of time.
Getting bold, even colors with colored pencils can be difficult, even with Prismacolors or Faber Castell pencils. Beginners often find that their large back-and-forth strokes can be hard to hide. Different areas meet up at awkward angles, and can look patchy up against one another. There are certain techniques you can use to help solve this problem.
