Once you copy from books, you become better at it, and you can draw without looking.
If you want to make a good drawing, you've got to colour the page fully. But if it's not needed, don't colour it.
If you use felt pens, you can use them for the outline, which is good.
If you use them to colour the full page, then all the marks show behind, so you mustn't do that. My teacher told us not to use felt because all the back-page becomes all spoilt.
I'm still only learning to draw everyday.
When I'm colouring from my colouring book, I don't ask my Daddy for papers.
But whenever I'm doing drawing I ask my Daddy for two or three papers, and then I draw. He says, "Okay" and gives me, but first he says "you must write two blog enteries, then only I'll give you papers."
