Time for color! When using colored pencil, think about building two or three layers of color, using light pressure as you go, rather than pressing very hard to cover the surface. Allow some of the white paper to show through in area's to give the effect of highlights. Colored pencils are fun but tricky. It's best to keep an electric pencil sharpener nearby since you'll need to sharpen your pencils often. And keep in mind that colored pencil can be tricky to erase, which is another reason to press lightly. Be bold and daring with your color, and don't be afraid to experiment with watercolor or even acrylic paint! The sky's the limit when it comes to making art, especially in the Star Wars galaxy!
