Step 1: Gather and Organize Art Supplies
I would advise placing the pencils together, the pens together and the eraser/pencil sharpener together, in small piles.
Step 2: Sketch Out the Initial Base of Drawing
This is not supposed to look good yet, don't worry if it looks totally out of proportion or just flat out weird. This is only what you are basing your drawing off of. Since this is a collage, organize the main character and other main points from the book/movie/game.
Step 3: Work on Proportions
Draw lines if you need to see the center of a face, or need to position a torso in a certain way. Go crazy with the lines if needed. Whatever works to make the proportions look less crazy, unless that's what you're going for.
Step 4: Work on Details
Once the base is done, work (I'd recommend bottom up) on details, such as the eyes, hair, accessories or patterns.
Step 5: Work on Even Smaller Details
Once you're done with step 4, go and add smaller details, such as an unruly tuft of hair, freckles, ect.
Step 6: Darken Important Lines, or Outline
This is personal preference, but either outline the drawing with pens or darken the lines with pencil.
Step 7: Color
Get the colored pencils and start coloring. Use multiple pencils to get certain colors and have a piece of scratch paper nearby to test pencils out on, to make sure they're the right color.
Step 8: Done!
The finished product of your work. Enjoy your hard work.
