Step 1: Colour in the drawing with the lighter colour.
Step 2: Use the medium hue for shading, leaving the initial colour visible for the brighter areas.
Step 3: Using the light-coloured marker, go over the parts where the two colours meet in order to make the transition more gradual.
Step 4: Use the dark hue to emphasize darker areas and go back to the medium hue to create a smooth transition between the two.
Step 5: Go over the entire drawing with the initial lighter colour to complete the gradation.
