No matter what colors you ultimately choose, having a rough idea of how you’d like your completed piece to look will help ensure that you are satisfied with your final product.
Coloring your own pictures is a great way to get creative and to have the freedom to color any design that you want. Trace your favorite pictures or use your imagination to create cartoons, patterns, lettering, or still life drawings.
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).
Example: if you want to create the appearance of shadow, try using a deeper blue (or red, or yellow, etc.) to create darker areas and a lighter blue for highlighted areas. This method can work with pencils, pens and markers.
You can also try putting paper or cardboard shapes beneath the coloring page and using the crayon rubbings method to create new shapes on your picture.
If they want to color a picture of one of these characters specifically, search for, for example, “Incredible Hulk coloring pages.”
