Using a coloring pencil is useful in your drawing activities. It is a good scheme when you spend time exploring the colored pencil medium and its pieces before trying other major drawing works.   Sharp colored pencils and good quality drawing paper is best to start with.   Remember to practice all strokes, shading, hatching, and the basics of color pencils.
