Some more final inkings of my Mer-Kingdom coloring book! Next is the individual sea creatures that will get their little info page.
Preparing to ink the sketches from my upcoming coloring book, Mer-kingdom, with my new Sakura micron inks. So much work too still do: finish up the writing, sketch and ink the creatures on the opposite page of each mermaid, scan, cleanup digitally, layout, design the cover…my hope is to spend the next two months finishing this up to have the book ready and in the Amazon marketplace by December. Right now its easier just to think about each Merperson one at a time, rather than dreading more sleepless nights. I need to keep up the momentum, because I know how good it will feel to finish this and share it with others.
On the facing pages of my Creatures Of Legend, there was an actual story about that creature. For my new coloring book, I’ll be pairing each mer-person with some sea-creature, and the facing page will have a little bio abut that organism. This is so exciting because I love the ocean and all its fascinating creatures. To merge my fantasy drawing with a story of my biology fandom is quite exciting.
But what about the Fantasy Creatures coloring book, you ask?
Well I will have you know its finished, and going through the process of approvals right now. Here is the cover, for your viewing pleasure. It will be available in a few weeks or so, but I will let you know!
