Nikki's second innovative idea was to include copies of her colored test images for each page in the book plus she gave us two of each to test out our own color schemes. Never have seen this before but hope that this inclusion in Nikki's Spellbinding Images attracts other artists to do so as well. These two new ideas are very exciting, innovating and absolutely genius. Way to go Nikki. You took a risk and it is going to pay off for you. I hope other artists will follow your example.
My enjoyment continued as I scanned through the book, finding beautiful drawings with so much detail to experiment with. I love the fact the artist includes test copies of each and every drawing, so you can play around with different color schemes before you start your permanent copy.
I found it helpful that a fully completed copy of each picture has also been included so that I can reference it if I get stuck, as well as helpful hints from the artist herself!
To sum it all up, I personally found no cons, only fabulous pros with this book, which is a rare thing.
I did NOT receive any discount on my purchase for my honest review, just a budding artist passing some info on to fellow artists!
This is the book (and Nikki's very helpful Youtube tutorials) that taught me how to color grayscale and made the experience fun. I have had another grayscale coloring book prior to the purchase of this one, the results uploaded by other reviewers are nothing short of impressive, but it was rather daunting to even attempt to color them. After a couple of failed attempts, I looked up Youtube tutorials and came across Nikki's channel and the rest is history.
I do prefer the advanced version, not because I'm great at coloring grayscale, but I prefer to use the grayscale as guides, and not having to use as much color to cover up the darker grays. I think it also opens up more color choices as well. I've attached my rather incomplete and clumsy first attempt.

Das Buch hat zu jedem Motiv kleine Testfelder und Abbildungen in den Originalfarben, was einem helfen können, falls man zB unsicher ist, welche Haarfarbe die gewählte Dame nun haben soll ;-)
Die Motive sind verspielt und haben unterschiedlich viele Details, sodass für jede Laune und Motivation etwas dabei ist.
Einzig die hohe Zahl an Bildern, die keinen ausgestalteten, sondern einen "marmorierten" Hintergrund haben, stört mich etwas. Das Ausmalen großer schlichter Hintergrundflächen empfinde ich als etwas ...naja...doof ;-)
