Browse for pictures of characters from popular animated movies. Try searching for something like “recent Disney movie coloring pictures” or “Pixar character coloring pages.” Kids like coloring this type of picture, since the characters are instantly recognizable.
While you are coloring, use plenty of different colors to make your picture look bold and bright.
If you are very concerned about making mistakes, stick to using colored pencils as these can be erased if necessary.
If you are not concerned about smudging, you can begin coloring wherever you’d like.
If you want to make sure that you get the colors right, get a scrap piece of paper and try drawing swatches with the same colored pencil using different amounts of pressure. You can use the swatches as a reference point to decide how much pressure you want to use while coloring.
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.
