A Fantasy coloring book
This Fanatsy coloring book is quite AWESOME. Now my wife and Daughter have been into those “Adult” Coloring books the last few years. They have their collection of Gel pens and colored pencils. They both even have coloring calendars that they color at the beginning of every month.The ones they color are all flowery and girlie with all these inspirational pictures.I never really saw the attraction. They say it’s relaxing.
But I recently received this new book by a very talented illustrator by the name of Eric Messinger. Among other things he’s done Eric has worked for Marvel Comics and Image Comics.His specialty is Fantasy illustrations. Of course I’ve always been a fan of Fantasy Novels and movies. So when I saw this fantasy coloring book I thought it was very cool indeed.What sets this apart from other is it’s not just a bunch of pages to color. This was created by a professional artist that gives you coloring tips in the book and suggestions on the different colors that compliment each other. Yeah I know we’ve all been coloring since we were kids but this one is a little different.It also has what he calls a color wheel that I thought was pretty interesting.I like that he gives you a few colored pictures to show you how he would color them then the same picture for you to try.
For anyone Young or old (like me )that is a fan of fantasy and the fantastical creatures you’ve come to know and love this is a fun and very different type of fantasy coloring book by a very talented artist that you can tell loves what he does.
