Grayscale coloring has been gaining popularity in the Adult Coloring World. It's where you color directly over a grayscale image instead of a traditional black and white line art image. Coloring over shades of gray gives you the look of shading without having to shade at all! The grayscale image underneath creates all sorts of subtle variations providing depth that is very hard to achieve on a traditional coloring page.
I have adapted my original fantasy watercolor paintings and created grayscale coloring images for you to color and enjoy! As I've been developing them, I discovered just how FUN grayscale coloring is and decided to include several different items in your "Grayscale Coloring Package" that I think will make it even more enjoyable for you!
Grayscale coloring can be simple or present more of a challenge depending on the amount of lightness or darkness that is in the image. Darker grayscale images allow more of the shadows to show through when coloring on top, so that minimal shading is needed. Lighter grayscale images are for those people who want more of a challenge, because you will need to do a lot of the shading yourself. It all comes down to how much you want the grayscale image to "aid" you. So I have included three variations of the grayscale coloring page tailored towards a beginner, intermediate and advanced skill level.
☆ ★Choose Your Border★ ☆
There are 3 different border options for each difficulty level. Choose between a simple black border, an intricate lacy border or no border if you prefer. The borders help to give you a clean edge while coloring.
☆ ★Experiment on Tester Sheets★ ☆
You will also receive a tester sheet that has 6 small versions of the grayscale coloring page, identical to the difficulty level you choose, along with a small colored version of the original artwork and an area for notes and scribbles! It is all formatted to fit on one 8.5x11" sheet of paper.
☆ ★Basic Instructions and Techniques with Links to Tutorials and Supplemental Material★ ☆
A PDF including basic instructions and techniques is included in your purchase! I cover the basics of grayscale coloring, what materials to use, and go over colored pencil and marker techniques. You will also receive links to full length, step-by-step colored pencil and marker tutorials specifically for grayscale coloring. And you will also find links to a lot of supplemental material that I have written to aide you in your grayscale coloring experience!
Included in your purchase are ALL the options that I listed above. I have formatted the PDFs, so that you can download and print the difficulty level that sounds the most fun to you. All pages measure 8.5x11". Included in your purchase, you will receive:
