Crayons for Grown-ups by staple-salad Crayons for Grown-ups by staple-salad
CRAYONS!!! I used a lovely box of 96 Crayolas for this.

If for some crazy reason, you want to use the lineart in this, you can find it in my gallery and also over at #color-me-club. If you go to the club, you can also find a ton of lines that are awesome for coloring with crayons, if you're too lazy to use your own (like me most of the time).

Anyways, here are some better examples:

Better example for the shading, however, also an example of why finely detailed drawings do not make for good crayon coloring (note the mechanical arm).


Using somewhat cell-shading, this is an example of what GOOD lineart is in terms of using crayons to color it.


Another example of good crayon-color-able lineart. On this one though, sometimes varying pressure of the crayon was used to produce shadows in addition to using cooler and warmer shades of green on the dragon.

Hope some of you take this to use crayons more! They are by far an underrepresented and under-appreciated medium!

Better tutorial to come when I figure out what I'm doing more.

Also, would highly advise being careful when scanning crayon pictures, you're likely to find yourself with a bunch of wax particles on your scanner bed if you're not...
