Drawing steps with colored pencils
The steps of drawing with colored pencils are basically the same as other paintings: composition, pencil draft, and coloring. The only difference is the coloring process. Mainly reflected in the two aspects of color toning and brushstroke processing.

Toning
The toning of colored pencils is very different from painting with paint. The colors of colored pencils are fixed. You can't change it. What you should do is to constantly change the color of your pencils according to the needs of your picture. Through the interleaving of different colors, the effect of color mixing is produced visually. It is especially important to note that in this process, the color of the picture must be considered as a whole, otherwise there will be the disadvantage of very flowery colors. In addition, you can also control the color by applying the intensity. For example, the bright part of the light can be painted lighter, and the backlight surface can be painted harder. Combining the two methods can produce a flexible sense of hierarchy.

Strokes
The biggest characteristic of  colored pencil drawing is that the brush strokes are extremely expressive and have a simple and warm feeling. Making and controlling brush strokes is a great knowledge. What I concluded is that the lines of the pen must have a uniform arrangement when painting, such as all straight lines, all oblique lines, or variability in a certain direction. When dealing with different places, you can choose different brushstrokes according to the texture of the object, but remember that there should not be too many different brushstrokes on the same painting, otherwise it will be messy and lose the beauty. To control the brush strokes, you need to have enough patience and overall thinking in the process of painting.
