Coloring! What are your favorite things to color? - August 22nd 2021, 10:55 PM

Coloring books are a great form of self expression. What types of things do you like to color? My favorite coloring book is a swear word coloring book and I hope to get more for Christmas. Obviously I can't share those with you since PG-13, but here's one I colored from a stress relief book. I tend to like designs like this more than I do coloring animals, etc. When I color animals I tend to want to stay "realistic" and I don't want to do that always!

Share things you have colored

I unfortunately don't get to colour in as much as I would like but I am considering buying myself a book similar to yours or one of animals.

I am not really sure what I like to color, to be honest, as I haven't really given it a whole lot of thought. I know I don't like coloring in illustrations that have too much going on in them; such as different designs.

I have one of these too! It's so much fun.

I colour mostly on my phone or tablet now. I like colouring in pictures of people or landscapes because it can be really fun picking which colours to use.

The word "darn" is tame enough for me to share.

That's awesome!

I have three colouring books- a wolf one, a christmas one and a fantastic beasts one.

I do also understand the frustration of wanting to colour in animal ones in a realistic way and how this can be limiting.

But yeah, colouring is fun

I prefer to draw myself than colour printed ones But I see how that can be calming.

I haven't coloured anything in years. Definitely not since I was a child. I always remember colouring things in as a child and the teachers would tell me how my colouring directions were all over the place. Apparently there's a 'technique' to effectively colouring in. Though personally I think a person should colour in whatever direction they feel like.

I definitely don't follow a technique, nor do I color inside the lines

I also enjoy drawing and painting over coloring. I love using pastels the most, it's so much fun and calming.
