Doodleworlds 18 Feb 2018

AngelaPorter_Doodleworlds_Coloured_02

I’ve just finished colouring in this template from my book “Doodleworlds”.  I drew the template using pen and ink on paper, scanned it in for the book, but I chose to colour the template digitally using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, my Microsoft Surface Book and Microsoft Surface Pen.

Doodleworlds is available on Amazon and in my Etsy shop – Artwyrd.

WIP Wednesday and a new book available in the Colorist App

It’s that day again – WIP Wednesday – in the Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group.

So, here is my work in progress, an icy patterned mandala.

This mandala is one of ten templates available in my latest book in the Colorist App from Faction Apps,

I’m using the template as an opportunity to learn more about Autodesk Sketchbook Pro on my Microsoft Surface Book, in particular working with the different kind of layers and how I can add patterns to the coloured sections.  This mandala is going to be great for that as the sections are quite large.

That’s right, Doodleworlds, the colouring book, is now available on Amazon.com as well as the other Amazon websites, so now all the lovely, wonderful colourists who love my work can join in with the fun of this book!

 

Doodleworlds, December facebook group challenge

Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans facebook group challenge for December

This month, the challenge for the members of the facebook group Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans is a little different.  I’ve set them a challenge to use limited palettes of winter or Christmas or holiday colours to colour in any template they wish and to share their results.  I’m hoping for lots of sparkle and shine!

The image above is my offering today for the group, the template I created exclusively for them, so if you’d like to get it and colour it, head over to Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans and sign up.  You’ll be sure to get a warm welcome there!

I drew the design on my Microsoft Surface Book using my Surface Pen and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.  I used the same tools to colour the image.

Doodleworlds

Just a reminder that the Doodleworlds colouring book is available via my Etsy shop, called Artwyrd, and on Amazon.co.uk, other European Amazon sites, but not on Amazon.com yet.

Doodleworlds Coloring Book

Doodleworlds is now available through Amazon.co.uk

For some reason it’s not quite there at Amazon.com; there are some third party sellers offering the book for purchase at around double the price I’ve set.  I trust the book will be live on Amazon.com in the next day or few.

In a shortwhile, a pdf version of the book is available via Etsy – perfect for colorists who love to print on paper or other substrates that is suitable for their favourite medium.

It contains 40 whimsical, fun, details coloring templates, where the creatures that inhabit the Doodleworlds journey through different landscapes.  It is quintessentially Angela in style, quite intricate, busy, but cute and a little different to my previous books.

Anyone of any age who enjoys colouring in the more detailed designs will love this.  Also, the imaginative and ‘doodly’ nature of the artwork means you can let yourself go and just have fun with colour!

There is a facebook fan group – Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans – which you can join and share your coloured work with other colorists who love my work.

Of course, you can also share your work directly with me via my facebook page – Angela Porter Illustrator, or on Instagram where you can tag me as AngelaPorterIllustrator.

I’d love to see how you bring the denizens and realms of the Doodleworlds to life with colour.

WIP Wednesday!

First work in progress (WIP) for this Wednesday is the Doodleworlds colouring book.  It is currently in the last phases of approval and proofing at CreateSpace.com, so it should be ready to purchase soon!  There will be a pdf version available on Etsy at the same time.

The coloured cover art on the front and back covers has been done by the winners of the contest run in the facebook group Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans.

Here’s the back cover with the list of winners and their images on the covers:

November Colouring Challenge

November2017Challenge by AngelaPorterColoured1small

A new month dawned yesterday, so it was time to set Novembers Colouring Challenge over on Angela Porter’s Colouring Book Fans on facebook.

The challenge is to colour the template using the provided colour palette.

The template and palette details are only available in the facebook group, so head on over there if you fancy joining me in the challenge!

I can’t wait to see what you do with the palette and template and how different they will all look.
