I found a bow of crayons! :D
They are Crayola Crayons. I also found a 20-18 year old set of unidentified crayons in every colour. I was apparently very fond of green back then, hehe. I remember drawing trolls, princesses and frogs. All with green features
Now. Everything I ever coloured with crayons looked like crap, but I have seen pretty crayon based drawings.
I realize I know nothing about them crayons. Expept that they come in different colours and that emos love taking pictures of them.
Any paper that affects them for better or worse?
I want to make something awesome! I know there is no secret for that, but anything I should avoid? Like drawing over 6B lines.. That smudges if my memory strikes me correctly. I haven't done traditional in ages. Only doodles.
Edit: Box of crayons.. not a bow

Well, if you have all the colours of the rainbow in your crayons, doesn't it become kinda like a... "craybow"?

I experimented with crayons last year on regular printer paper. It wasn't all that bad, although they were fairly dirty and my colours had traces of other colors in them. Nasty effect.
Daw. I recall that I was looking around my little kid stuff and almost anything red was either gone or seriously depleted. I suppose that was my favorite color.
I recall drawing hearts, princess's and story about a red ball that made my mom go nuts happy.
I'd say find a standard coloring book and experiment there. Since you can vary color and density to a degree by pressing on the crayon, I'd suggest trying to finding interesting ways of shading.
There are also artist crayons that are a tad nicer than crayola. My avatar portrait was done in crayon on primed board.
But there's something so fun about a big box o' Crayolas... Artist crayons aren't quite the same.
I've got a giant box kicking around, with the extra fancy colors and built-in plastic sharpener and everything, sometimes I use them just to mess around. They work fine so far on regular old printer paper or any sketchbook paper...
This is just a guess, but try them out on bumpy watercolor paper. Maybe you'll like what you see-
or maybe you'll want to die. /shrug
Yeah, the same teacher got us to buy a box of crayola crayons for gesture drawing. Worked well. Drawings were ugly as snot, but they were just for warm up. Good no-pressure way to start out.
makes me want to try oil pastels again.
