How to Make Realistic Looking Pages
The secret is to create a contrast. Blending colors with a touch of variance will make a difference. For example, a base of fresh green in one detail matched with blue-green next to it will give you two slightly different shades. Another is orange opposite with violet, pink and turquoise all make a wonderful art that is so vivid.
Play it up with a few shades darker than your base colors. Blend, mix, make it subtle, make it strong. You can use overlapping strokes for more artistry. The more contrast and contradiction, the more your drawing will look full of life.
For the best result, think of quality. From your drawing to the pencil to choice of colors to different strokes – everything must be created with passion. The better tools you use the more picturesque the results. You can start with simple crayons or brightly colored pencils.
