Charcoal illustration
Though not highly accurate, this is used for illustration of sketches and short stories wherein
an array of textures can be blended with different shadows and objects. Fingering, tissue
wiping, and smudging is generally used for creation of smooth shades. Compression of
charcoal powder with gum binder allows sharper lines to appear.

Lithography
Offset lithography has superseded the technique of oily, fatty or
waxy images posted over limestone plate. You can achieve a set
level of softness and cause the colours to appear washed out.

Water-colouring
Colour pigments are used for creation of nuances through varies transparency sheets by
altering the amount of water added to colour. Depth, space, and softness characterize the
illustrations. Colours can be splashed one above other with ease.

Gouache illustration
The gouache paint resembles watercolour but is opaque in consistency. You can use it for
accomplishing richer, thicker and heavier shades compared to water colours. In animations,
cel is opaquely coloured and then water-colour painting is used in the backdrop. Water
evaporation happens rapidly resulting in drying of painted layer faster.
