Here are a couple of videos that might give you a few tips.

You can also try and scan your previous sketches onto photoshop or get them onto your tablet/ipad and add colour to them using different styles.

We hope you are enjoying the sketch challenge. Keep on sending in your sketches, and let us know how you are getting on. Until next week – Happy Sketching!
