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.
Vary your strokes to add depth to your drawing. Crosshatching is a popular and fairly simple way to create depth using variation in strokes. Crosshatching is done by drawing overlapping sets of lines at right angles (this pattern should look mesh-like). For darker areas, draw these lines closer together. To create highlights, leave more space between each line, or don’t draw any lines at all.
