I've been sorting through the past and my older illustrations, and found this one: "I Choose to Embrace the Unknown", that seemed a good candidate for a creative therapy colouring page. Slight changes were made while I inked it, scanned it, cleaned it in Adobe photoshop, and then placed it up onto my Floating Lemons Colouring Page Etsy shop:
Yes, I've started colouring it in ... quality control remember? It's the only way to check for any major mistakes. The fact that I'm having therapeutic fun is quite unrelated to the fact that it's a job that needs to be done, honest.
Octopus Embrace is now the first in a series of themed Underwater World pages that I'll be slowly drawing and putting up at the store along with the Quirky Botanical pages that are already up there. If you'd like to download it as a printable, just click here: Printable Octopus Embrace Colouring Page. And please do tag me @FLcolor or #flcolor when you're done, to share the finished page at my Floating Lemons Colouring Pages on facebook.
Here's a print of the original illustration, drawn in coloured pencil:
The original post and in-progress drawings for it are here: Text Illustration: I Choose to Embrace the Unknown. I was quite pleased with the end result ... and am considering turning it into a grayscale colouring page as well, as they're apparently quite popular though I've never tried colouring one in myself ... yet. Have you? I'll post that once it's complete. Meanwhile, have fun! Cheers.
