Some of the artwork of people looks decent, other art is scream-and-run-away awful. There are some pages that you're not going to want to look at it, let alone color. It looks like crude children's art. I think at the end of the day, I will have found maybe four pages that look good and are suitable for coloring. Some of the pages that are nice art on their own won't look good colored, because of backgrounds either too complex or too simplistic or both.
The paper is also not suited to much beyond pencils and crayons. I use fountain pens and occasionally watercolors. Fountain pen ink feathers badly and soaks through to the reverse of the page. Watercolors I'm not even going to try.
I'm feeling a little bitter (a familiar feeling for any Firefly fan) about this. Got excited for it and it pretty much sucks.
While this book is 96 pages, don't expect anywhere near 96 pieces of art to color (there are 45 of them). Each page has art on one side and a quote from the series on the other side. Even though this results in less art to color, I do like that if I use markers and it bleeds through the back side a little bit, it isn't ruining art on the reverse side. I wish all other coloring books had single-sided pages like this.
At least the price on this is reasonable, even if a lot of the art isn't stellar. I suppose my coloring skills aren't stellar either, so maybe I'm getting the book my skills deserve. Either way, I'm sure I'll still have fun coloring this.
As much as I love this movie/show, it's probably not good material for a coloring book. If you prefer (like me) to color realistically, there's not a broad range - a lot of bland shades of brown.
Also, about 90% of the images are shots (or variations of) from the series and include people. Very few are object-only, and none are tesselations, which I do personally like to see sprinkled into these coloring books.
Speaking of people, in a well-drawn book, these are difficult to color. These are extremely poorly done. Except for Shep and Jayne (an elderly black man and a dude with a goatee), all the men look the same. If Mail isn't wearing his coat, Wash isn't in the cockpit, or Simon isn't in a doctor outfit, you cannot tell them apart. Well, maybe Mal is recognizable one other time. The women are almost as bad. Inara is only recognizeable once - in her own environment. Kaylee never looks like Kaylee, and Zoe...? There's one very good likeness, otherwise, it's a borderline stereotype of a black woman.
Most of the time you have to remember what the scene is in order to identify anybody. And half the time, their mouths are drawn ridiculously overdrawn for their faces.
There's enough that I find ... OK ... that it wouldn't be worth the hassle of returning, but I have seriously considered it. (And it just arrived this afternoon....)
