Coloring books are coming along nicely

   

These are designs number 8,9 & 10. I’m halfway done with the second coloring book! 

Creating these designs is a multi-step process. I start with a piece of drawing paper divided up by pencil diagonally, to form an X. 

  

Then I use a compass to draw concentric circles at various distances from the center. This framework sketch helps guide my design by keeping the drawing symmetrical.

 

Once the design is penciled in, I go over it with a fine tip sharpie marker. When the drawing is fully inked, I erase all the pencil lines, photograph and then open the image in Photoshop where I clean up the image a bit more and save it for future printing. The images in this post are at the stage of just being photographed, but not yet cleaned up Photoshop.
