Make sure you warm your hands and wrists up before coloring by doing some simple exercises. Rotate your wrist ten times clockwise, then repeat anti-clockwise. Clench and stretch your fingers as you unclench your fist – do this ten times to get the blood flowing to your hands and finger-tips. This will help avoid your hand cramping as you color. Take regular breaks and repeat this exercise, I try not to color for more than 20 minutes without shaking the stiffness out of my hands!
From here you can start to think about more advanced techniques like shading, burnishing and blending colors and begin to work with some of the tools that the coloring professionals use. Remember, these techniques take time and practice to master – don’t expect to be producing masterpieces over night, after all it took Michelangelo 4 years to finish the Sistine Chapel so give yourself at least a good couple of years of practice to produce your first coloring masterpiece!
When you are coloring, make sure you have a good light source so that you aren’t straining your eyes. During the day try and find yourself a nice spot by a window with plenty of natural light, alternatively invest in a daylight LED lamp so that you can have a decent bright light to color under day and night. Some of these lamps even have in-built magnifying glasses which will help you when coloring detailed pages, but will also put less strain on your eyes.
