Coloring! or Colouring? Either way, Yay!!! Coloring books, line art, abstract, anime, that weird stain on your desk, whatever!


Any sort of coloring!

Crayons, pencils, markers, digital. Coloring books, abstract, anime... whatever you enjoy!

Subreddit meant for discussions and sharing art, not for selling coloring books.


Rules!

If you have critique, try and be constructive about it.

No being a snob about equipment used to color.

No low effort youtube spam.

If you post someone else's original art before it was colored, please obscure the drawings a bit with an object so they cannot be pirated.

We only allow YouTube posts and comments for tutorials and reviews. No ASMR, No "Colour with me", No Self Promotion for books!

Self Promotion/Selling/Advertising posts are not allowed.

Self promoting your own book as a self post is not allowed. This is not an advertisement subreddit. You are allowed to post photos of pages colored by you, from your coloring book and only allowed to post the link to said book in the same post, but in comments.

Posts from accounts that don't have at least 10 karma points will automatically be filtered by the Automoderator. Mail the moderatos if your post was removed and be patient for it to be reviewed. Thank you!


Flair!

Right now we have flair based off of different colors for anyone to use! If there are some colors you think we should add, let me know!

If you want anything custom (and it isn't obscene), send me a PM.

A question about setting up a little coloring newsletter

Hi everyone,

This is very much still in the ideas stage but I wanted to float the idea.

Some of you may have seen my post the other day about getting into creating coloring pages. I am bed bound currently because I broke my ankle (in three places no less 😭). I spend a lot of my time drawing anyway and I’ve come across this great little community!

I had an idea about creating something like a monthly newsletter with a free coloring page. For transparency I would still be selling pages (as you can imagine, I’m not really able to do any work other than anything I can do from my bed). But this community you guys have on here is really lovely, I love the support here. I think art is a fantastic thing that should be accessible to everyone and coloring is a great way to scratch the artistic itch.

As I say, just an idea right now, but I wanted to see if anyone would be interested in theory?

Background ideas??

Just finished this page from Johanna Basford’s World of Flowers but I don’t know what to do for the background. Any ideas?

Btw I hate what I did to the dark green flower on the bottom 😖. So mad at myself lol.

The picture is in the comments, not sure why I couldn’t add it to the original post 🤷‍♀️

Finished

Starting to have fun doing really simple printable pages! Printed on card stock. Used Prisma colored pencils as well as castle art and farber Castell, been mixing it up a lot and trying different combos.
