I've been watching lots adult coloring/colorists videos on Youtube lately & so when this challenge came around at Land of Art to color fandom pages it was perfect timing. I wanted to try digitally coloring pages with a more 'painterly' look. Though I don't have any experience painting coloring pages with real//traditional media paint to begin with. Well, not since I was little & used those fun paint-with-water coloring books.
I haven't really taken much time to make anything with Krita in a while & the last version I used has was 2 or 3. I'm so used to using GIMP, but Krita is a million times better for digital coloring & just using my tiny graphics tablet in general.
This one is sort a mess but my favorite, if I don't say so myself. I tried to give it a real digital painting look. I used the default water color brushes to fill the sky & the default star field texture brush to add extra sparkles. I drew shiny scales on her tail because mermaids, of course, have bio-luminescence.
This one went wrong from the start in that I couldn't decide on colors, but I do like the clumpy look of the 'paint.'
On this one I used the new (or new to me) default Impressionist brush to paint the sky.
I do better with kids' coloring pages! On this one I got tired of the little details. I like the figures of the Fourth Doctor & K9 but the tiny chess board squares were not inspiring me at all so I didn't color them like a real chess board & it wound up looking like he's in a retro indoor swimming pool in space. And I made a mess of his scarf. Don't look too closely Who fans.
Speaking of Doctors Who, here are my old coloring pages which I did for the "Who-odles" Twelve Days of the the Twelfth Doctor activity at dwstills, they disappoint me now. If I remember right, I used GIMP 2.8 & Krita 3 to coloring these pages.
