Choose the best place to begin coloring. Some drawing utensils (such as gel pens, colored pens, or markers) are more likely to smear than others.
Check out TV network sites to find coloring images of characters. If your child wants to color images of some of their favorite animated characters, visit the sites of the networks that broadcast the shows.
Note that you are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books, as there are many printable coloring pages designed for adults are available online, many of which are free.
Coloring pages can be great fun for kids, especially if the pages feature the child’s favorite animals, flowers, or animated characters. There are plenty of free coloring pages online, so you should never have to pay to download these images.
Regardless of the type of tool that you choose, look for a set that has a wide variety of different colors so that you can experiment with different techniques such as shading.
Try shading by using a combination of light and dark tones to show where the aspects of your drawings that are highlighted. You can also try cross hatching by adding intersecting lines to create dimension.
