Never be afraid to try different types art mediums such as pencil, crayon, paint, chalk, collage... Art is all about expression and how you see the world, so by using different mediums & textures it gives you greater freedom to express yourself through your pictures.
4.Do a light sketch first
When I draw a picture out, I always use a pencil and very lightly draw my characters, creatures, animals out using circles & oval shapes to get the basic shape and where I would like them to be in my picture. By doing it very lightly in pencil first It allows me to remove or move them somewhere else within the picture, easily using a rubber, until you feel it looks right.
