Hello! Today three more finished pages from the Hidden in the Jungle book. To color the above chameleon illustration I used a whole bunch of medias: highlighters, markers, pencils and watercolor.

Hello!Today two more completed pages from the Beauty of Horror coloring book: werewolf and beheaded guys. For the werewolf I used watercolor and pencils. Have to say that the book's paper is of very good quality, if not to use too much water it can stand watercolor all right, with just a little buckling.
The werewolf is not the most terrifying illustration in the book. I really enjoyed working on it. Can't say same thing about the next image....those cut off heads were not that much pleasure to color in. I have no idea how cut off heads supposed to look (thanks God) and this is my version...Anyway, one should not take such illustrations seriously

Today a bunch of colored pages from the Relaxed and Focused Coloring book. I work on this book in the evenings, while sitting in front of TV. No much thinking, no much worrying - just indeed relaxed coloring. The first image is done completely with highlighters.

The face of this lady, presumably Medusa Gorgon, is quite disgusting and all those snakes...yuck... but still I enjoyed coloring the illustration. What I used: Derwent Artist 72 colored pencils and Derwent Pastel pencils for the background. I know background is supposed to be colored firstly but it just doesn't work with me, background is the last thing that I color in.
Well, I hope you liked my Medusa Gorgon
Till the next time

Hello! Today I'm showing another bunch of finished pages from the Escape to Christmas Past coloring book by Good Wives and Warriors. But I think that would be it, done with this book for now. I used these illustrations to try different media, to experience with those I am not quite familiar with. The first page from the ones I am showing in this pose is done with watercolor pencils (Staedtler Luna 48 pieces). I still try to figure out how to work with this type of pencils and not always I am happy with the result.

Hello!Today is another mandala from the Enchanted Dreams: A Meditative Art Therapy coloring book by Poppy Appleby. I called it "Fifty shades of green" mandala and you can guess why. I used markers and pencils in different shades of green to color it in.

Hello and Happy New Year!Today I finally can post winter themed pages that I recently finished. All they are from the Escape to Christmas Past coloring book and are done with watercolor markers, glittering gel pens and color pencils. Paper of this book is of a rather good quality so no bleeding through when using gel pens and markers. The page with kittens is one of my favorite in this book.
