Introduction:
Drawing with colored pencil is super easy, if you use the right colors and have drawn a good sketch. Unlike graphite pencils, colored pencils cannot be easily erased, so we have to draw carefully, especially the darker areas. Always draw parts with colored pencil pressing down lightly, then if it looks good, color over the same area pressing down harder. Buy a good brand of colored pencils and smooth paper. If you don't have a lot of, say, red pencils, you can get more nuances with only one pencil by controlling how hard you press when you draw. In the image below I've drawn with one red pencil, three nuances. In the first example, I pressed hard, in the second, I pressed normally and in the third example I pressed lightly. Even more nuances can be created by changing the pressure you out on the pencil.
