"I love every page in this book. Single sided. This artist takes great pride in what he does and it shows. I had been looking for this type of book but could not find one i liked until i saw this one. It is perfect. I wanted to practice and learn to do different skin tones and this was the magic ticket. You wont be disappointed." --Ramboni

The artist has created a unique coloring book in that he has three levels of design levels. Each of the levels has ten designs. The first level is Simple Illustrations and includes women from: Korea, France, Polynesia, Spain, Italy, Southeast Asia, Canada, Morocco, Native American, and Western USA. The second level is Illustrations with Additional Detail and includes women from: Bride, Southern Belle, USA, UK, Japan, Pakistan, Peru, Nepal, Jamaica, and South Africa. The final level is Challenging Illustrations and includes women from India, Kamchatka, Victorian Lace, USA, Russia, Mexico, Norway, Brazil, Switzerland, and Ireland.
In addition to the three levels, the artist has included seven designs which are zoomed in images of other of the designs already mentioned above. The zoomed shot gives the colorist the opportunity to add more detail and shading to their project.
All of the designs stop well before the binding. The designs are printed on one side of thin white non-perforated paper that is typical for books published by CreateSpace. The binding is glued but there is plenty of room for you to cut a page out if you choose to do so. All of the designs have a “framing” line around the outside. I really like this as it gives me a natural stopping point, saves ink/pencil, and also gives me a more finished looking project when I color.
All of my markers bleed through and my gel pens either bleed through or leave a distinct shadow on the back of the page. My coloring pencils work well with the paper. I will use a piece of chipboard or heavy paper behind the page I am working on so I don't ruin the following page with leaking ink.
These are the coloring medium that I use for testing. If there is something else you feel I should be testing, please let me know and I will see if I can add it to my growing pile:
Markers: 1) alcohol-based – Copic Sketch, Prismacolor double ended markers (brush and fine point), Sharpies (fine and ultra-fine) and 2) water-based – Tombows dual end markers (brush and fine point), Stabilo 88, Staedler triplus fineliners, and Pentel markers
Gel Pens: Sakura, Fiskars, Uni-ball Signo 0.38/0.28 and Tekwriter
Coloring Pencils: Prismacolor Premier Soft Core, Derwent Colorsoft, Prismacolor Verithins, and Faber-Castel Polychromos
I received this book today and I'm very pleased with it. I've previously purchased Cats & Quilts from the same artist and I loved it! With the big success of coloring books for grown ups the market started to be overflowed with a lot of similar books and if you like to try something new this is the book for you.
Inside there are 30 amazing illustrations of young women from all over the globe. Starting with simple ones throughout more detailed ones.
The graphic quality of the illustrations inside is as great as the one showed in the cover and if skin tones scares you, you can visit the artist website and check out his tutorials for both lighter and darker skin tones (you'll also find more samples of the inside pages).
At the end of the book there are some bonus illustrations, zoomed faces of some of the illustrations that you'll specially enjoy if you like coloring make-up and Jewelry. All illustrations are printed one sided making it easy to color with any type of medium.
