Here's how I create Hand-Drawn Printables:
Start out with good quality paper to draw on. The Strathmore Mixed Media Paper Pad is high quality, smooth, and bright white, so it is perfect to sketch, draw, and color on. A pencil sketch with the MONO Drawing Pencil 3H grade is a great way to start. The 3H lead is harder, so it provides a light line that is easy to erase. I draw in the basic shape and outline first.
Continuing with the MONO Drawing Pencil 3H grade, I sketch in all the fun and quirky patterns. Add a variety of shapes, styles, and patterns to the different sections of the pumpkin for a whimsical look and feel. Erase any lines that are not needed with the MONO Zero Eraser. It has a small, precision tip that is perfect for detailed work.
I always ink in my free printable images with my secret weapon, the MONO Twin Permanent Marker from Tombow. It is actually two pens in one, a broader bullet tip on one end and an extra-fine tip on the other. Outlines are created with the bullet tip and details added with the fine tip.

Now it's time for the COLOR! I like to select my Dual Brush Pen palette and then create a color swatch on a piece of scrap paper, labeling each one with its corresponding number for reference. For this coloring project, I combined Dual Brush Pens 076, 098, 873, 885, 905, 925, 933, 946, and 977.
Add a variety of shades of green and orange with Tombow Dual Brush Pens to the Hand-Drawn Pumpkin Free Printable to give your project depth and interest. Experiment, relax, color, and just have FUN!
