I have a new book of coloring templates available on Colorist from Faction Apps. This one is called Intricately Yours – Mandalas, and the image above is one of the mandalas partly coloured.
I used the flood fill to add base colours to the patterns, and then added shading/highlights with the pencil tool. The patterns in the bottom were drawn using the gel pen tool.
Updates to Colorist
While test driving one of my templates on the Colorist app, I discovered a new feature, which I love – pre-set color palettes. I used the Easter palette to colour the above mandala.
I may be an artist, but I do sometimes get overly fussy with my colour choices, so being able to use a pleasing and limited colour palette makes life a bit easy for me!
I also discovered settings that allow you to turn touch colouring off, which is great for me as I use my surface pen, and a setting that keeps you automatically inside the lines, or not.
