Coloring Books!

Tue Mar 22, 2016, 9:28 PM

Coloring books for adults seem to be all the rage these days!  Every book store I've walked into, the very first display I see is for coloring books.  With so many people asking for permission to color my linework these past few months (or just taking and coloring regardless of permission), it appears that I need to be jumping on this bandwagon. :)

Coloring Page Sample by Saimain

And after inking just one page, I fully realize that I should have been doing this years ago!  @__@ Insanely-detailed lines is what I DO, and what I LOVE to do! I was so happy working on this--the hours flew by and I didn't even notice. I'd forgotten how happy lineart used to make me. The idea of inking some of my pieces in ways to make them enjoyable for other people to color makes me even happier!


Faeren, I think we've found our calling!


Coloring Page Sample 2 by Saimain
Yes, yes we have.

*________________________*

Guys, one more question!  Please lemme know whether you would prefer: 

-A large collection of 30 mixed fantasy-themed images in one coloring book. Some will be intricately-detailed, some intermediate, and some on the easier side.  Elves, romance, nature--everything you might expect from my work! :)
*OR*
-Two smaller books with 12-15 images each.  One with random fantasy critters, faeries, mermaids, cute whimsical portraits, etc, on the easier side.  Suitable for kids as well as adults!  The other would have more intricate and detailed portraits, couples and settings (like the two sample pages above). 

((I'm also planning a third coloring book: "Fantasy Masquerade!"  With lineart versions of my old masquerade-themed portraits in addition to three or four updated and exclusive new ones! :)  I might be a little too ambitious with all of these, but if the first book (or two) does well, this will be next on the horizon!))

All coloring books will be available both in print and .pdf download.  And also individual and extra downloadable pages for purchase through my online shop.  

I'm currently in the process of inking linearts, researching coloring book styles, preferred types of paper and binding, and testing out different printers/publishers to find the best quality for the pricing.  Once I'm closer to completion and have a better idea of the work and cost involved, I'll know how to proceed!  I might need to launch an IndeGoGo or Kickstarter campaign for pre-orders to get the printed version off the ground and into your hands, but the digital one should be ready to go a little sooner. 

Gaaaaah, this is all so exciting! :D  I can't wait to be finished already!

You can follow my progress on all the books on Patreon!  I'll be posting more linearts there as they are finished.

Thank you all for reading and for being awesome! Your support keeps me going!

Beautiful work! I saw your artwork on Facebook on the Drawing Pencil page. Before I paid attention to the content, I found your work to be quite beautiful. As soon as I realized it was based on Doctor Who, that give made it that much more desirable! Gorgeous work!!!

Your work is just so stunning! I would love to color some of your pieces with your permission that is.  Not to claim and sell of course, just for personal growth and experience. I absolutely love the depth of emotions you seem to display in every piece you produce, and would love to experiment with different color pallets and corresponding emotions.  If posted, I would credit you and link back to your works.

Thank you for your comment and for your interest!  :)  At the moment, only patrons who support my work on www.patreon.com/Meadowhaven have access to my linearts for coloring.  I do not offer my work for free to the general public, but I am considering putting together a coloring book for print and download in the near future.
