"Characters" contains 25 pages of illustrations, an introductory page, and an index. It measures 8.5 x 11 inches and is glue bound into a matte finish cover. Featuring hand drawn grayscale images, this book is appropriate for adult colorists on an intermediate/advanced skill level.
The paper contained in this book is bright white and about the same thickness as standard copy weight. Pages are single sided and non-perforated. Dry mediums are okay to use as is, but if you choose wet products like markers or gel pens, they may bleed or cause shadowing/wrinkling. As always, be sure to place several sheets of blotter paper under your current picture to prevent further color transfer to the rest of the book.
"Characters" features hand drawn sketches that look like a hybrid between grayscale and line drawing. Inside, you'll see a variety of animals personified through clothing and backgrounds. Themes include Pirate Badger, Koala Scientist, Fancy Giraffe, Rocker Raccoon, Princess Seal, Magician Unicorn, and more. There are even 2 reverse printed pages with black backgrounds. The majority of the shading is already added, so there isn't much extra work that needs to be done. The quality is decent and I didn't notice any printer streaks in my copy. Not all of the images have borders/frames, but all artwork does end before entering the binding. If you choose to remove any pages, you won't lose anything. Detail level is fairly high throughout and picture completion should range from 2-7 hours(may be slightly different for each person). Overall, this is a very fun book of colorful characters. It would be best suited for artists who enjoy whimsical or stylized imagery.
