Blend colors and shades to create dimension. Another way to add depth is to blend different shades or colors together to achieve different values.
Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
If you make a mistake while coloring using an app, it is much easier to remove than coloring with pencils or markers on paper.
Start from the outside of a section and work your way towards the center as you color. Try to color in the same direction at all times if possible, so that the strokes look neat and tidy.
You are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books. Tons of printable coloring pages are available online and many of them are free.
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).
