Colorists are given free rein to use whatever colors they want to bring their drawings to life. Whether you choose bright or neutral hues, the end result is bound to be one that you can be proud of. You may also discover that coloring allows your imagination and creativity to flow much more freely than when drawing by hand or when doing other types of art.
