Drawing Art With Crayola

Updated on May 28, 2012

Draw With Crayola Art Pens And Pencils

Creating any type of art with Crayola markers and colored pencils is really fun and with each different product there are different results that you can expect between the best of the best and we will be going through a few demonstrations of drawing with these valued budget art products. The best markers first up are the supertips from Crayola. these are simple and easy to use with each felt tip having a fine pointed tip for drawing in some good solid lines of color.

The Supertip markers come in packs of 8,12 and 24 usually although you may be able to pick up a 36 pack from Amazon. I use the Black color a lot for sketching quick sketches and as usual the Crayola range of supertips are great to blend certain colors together such as the fire colors of Red, Orange and Yellow which are demonstrated well in the following video....

The Coloring Process With Supertips From Crayola

Crayola Supertips are the best for doing fast color work and in the following video I tried to show how easy it is to blend the colors together with the Purple, Red and Oranges and the Yellow Supertips on top to help balance the blending out.

Adding the Purple in first is a simple technique of layering in the darkest color for the shadow areas. This helps when you then add the Red and Orange as the colors mix well almost like watercolors and then when adding the Yellow as the final bright highlight it all seems to come together very well indeed.

The basic Crayola colored pencils are the ones that I used a lot through Art College as they were and still are very cheap Artist pencils and a brilliant range of pencils for blending with multiple colors. The Vampiric skull ink drawing below only needed a subtle use of color with two colors that contrasted well with each other. The Red and the Black pencils are like the opposing forces of color, but they compliment each other well. I was going to smooth over the Black/grey color with a White pencil, but I left it as the colors didn't need anything more than what was already achieved for a concept drawing at least.

      What a great hub. What great videos. I've made notes as I have a drawing in mind that I want to sketch/color a few times before I do something nice with it in Prismacolor. I know purple and indigo blue and a couple others are great for deepening the object, but I learned a lot nonetheless. I've never used the color combination you're using here. Voting up, awesome and Sharing.
