Watercolor challenge! I just went over it with a wet brush. I don't think it did much. I need to work more on watercolours. Perhaps I should use water, while the colouring is in progress instead of at the end.

I used Faber-Castell color grip watercolor pencils, Tombow ABTs and a brush...

Bottom line, great book with fantastic artwork. Not for the faint of heart. The paper is a pretty good quality, too. Something for people who want to be challenged a little and are tired of colouring flowers and mandalas... I will definitely come back to it and colour more. ...more

Edit: Feb, 25th: I’ve found all the little creatures, worlds, objects and things and have long since started meticulously coloring. That will be called my second reading. All the coloring.

I love the art in this book. I had been looking at it for quite a while. It is very finely detailed and I think takes a meticulous mind to color it. I made up my mind that my husband would love it, so I got us both a copy and when we started coloring even the meticulous coloring was relaxing.

There is so much to look at it and when you take the time to color it, it jumps off of the page and brings it to life. Most things are in pairs or in multiples so you can vary them a bit and practice coloring animals and the little worlds the artist leaves you inside and everywhere. Most innovative adult coloring book I have seen yet. ...more

Wow! I would HIGHLY recommend this book. I just finished coloring my first page from it and really love it. I'm sure you've see many colored pics from this book on FB. Some colorists have amazing blending and shading skills. The results are gorgeous! I like to stick with markers, and am pretty happy that way. The paper in this book is very thick and I didn't have any marker bleed-thru at all. The pictures are of animals but with an array of wild, crazy, goofy characters making up their bodies. Wow!

It's really fun to color. It's also a search-and-find, with a list of objects at the back to find throughout the pictures (like the Rubic's Cube). I can see this being a treasured book for any who enjoy spending a few hours lost in color and imagination. ...more

So, I've finally got my hands on it thanx to my older sister who got it for me as a present!

My first colouring will be for the: Colours of the seasons - September 2016 challenge!
Since it's an Autumn & Winter season challenge and one is just over while the other began, I'm gonna go for the transition between the two, so Autumn/Winter it is!

These lovelies were chosen for it:

Thou I can already see that just like with EF, it shall have the same problem - spread outs. Why couldn't it be a folded in spread out? Oh well, nothing to do bout that.
And I also noticed that some pages have the -now draw and complete this or that yourself!- pieces. Meh, thou I probably will, but most likely not with what's intended XD



Update: 28.11.2017.
Actually finished this piece already some days ago, just forgot to post about it XD
And had taken a real long break from coloring, but now I'm back.

My lovely elephant really did turn out real pretty and elegant just as I imagined, if I do say so myself :D

Another 2 page spread from Animorphia and a watercolor challenge completed back....*drum roll* in May ;D

I actually used Koi Coloring Brush Pen (transparent one, which is awesome) and my Derwent water brush (because the brush pen got all used up, need to buy a new one, this piece proved to be too big for it XD) and I really, reaaaaaaly, like water brushes for huge backgrounds. The way it just blends the colors...aaaaah, me thinks from now on it's gonna be often used ;D ...more

This isn’t reading, okay.
But how amazing are these drawings? And such fun to color in! Strangely calming given its busy images.
I think Kerby Rosanes saved my sanity once during the long grey winter of 2015, when Paris had just had the Bataclan attacks and the outside world didn’t seem the same anymore.

A really nice colouring book overall, it has some beautiful artwork to colour the only slight issue I had is that I'm not one for the "draw your own" pages where you continue drawing a pattern or element on the page which took it down a star for me but it has plenty of just colouring pages to keep me interested and make it worth the purchase.

I used Staedtler finer liners and I haven't found them to bleed through the paper, though I don't press too hard with them.

Although not a reading book this has been a great book to colour in with my 4 & 7 yr olds we use gel pens which are neon against the bold print and have found it has helped with their motor skills holding pens and handwriting for the elder one. Me, I enjoyed trying to find the little figures with them and making up stories about what's was happening in the picture and what the animal might symbolise.

I have yet to finish colouring everything in here, but I have "read" it. I found all the hidden objects, made colour schemes and even purchased a copy for someone else because I love this book so much. I wouldn't recommend a colouring book without thoroughly enjoying it myself first. That's just how I am with these types of things.

Ik wilde deze eerst niet meetellen, maar toen bedacht ik me dat ik ook een 2-tal andere boeken zoals deze ook heb gelezen. Het is een kleurboek, maar ik zie het meer als een artbook. Ik ga toch niet kleuren, vind ik zonde om te doen. Kerby Rosanes art is gewoon prachtig, en dit is de enige manier om zijn art te krijgen, in een kleurboek.

Да наречете „Аниморфия” книжка за оцветяване би било страшно пренебрежително. Още щом разгърнете изданието на „Миранда” ви става пределно ясно, че създаденото от художника Кърби Розанес е много повече от това. Определят „Аниморфия” като „творческо предизвикателство за оцветяване, рисуване и търсене”, но дори това не покрива напълно същността на книгата. „Аниморфия” е визуално пиршество, триумф на въображението и графичното умение.

The images and spots to add ones own images are all amazing! I love this book, I immediately flipped through it once I got it. I got it as a free giveaway here on good reads and I can see myself looking for the other books by this artist after I finish this one. Though that might be a while due to all the intricate variety of detail each image holds or offers to be placed.

BREAK THE SPINE! It’s an amazing coloring book but the details on some pages are deep in the middle so open the page you want to color and open it backwards until the threading is exposed and it’ll be easier to color. Makes it easier to take it out and frame your favs!

This book is the most unusual and quirky book I’ve seen and while it’s not to everyone’s taste, it’s one that grows on most people. I found it really overwhelming when it arrived because it was just so different and such a mixture between realistic animals and quirky, cartoon aliens and other creatures and objects, that I just had no idea where to start, what colours to use, or whether I even liked it. Having had it for a couple of months I can now say with certainty that I love it and its quirkiness and unusual style is absolutely its selling point. The book is square, the same size as other bestsellers by JB and MM, it’s paperback with a black card cover with glowing orange lettering and a tiger in Kerby’s signature style which hints at what’s inside. The paper is bright white, very lightly textured and medium thickness, it does shadow with water-based fineliners but doesn’t bleed so you could use them very carefully but always check your pens somewhere inconspicuous to make sure you don’t ruin any reverse images. The paper is perfect for pencils and allows for plenty of layers for blending and shading. The ink does transfer a little so when you’re using pencils pop a scrap piece of paper behind to avoid transfer of images. The book contains over 80 images which are printed double-sided and include single and double-page spreads. The book has a glue-bound spine which is fairly tight on arrival and the images are borderless so you do lose a strip of each image into the spine and unfortunately a few of the images haven’t been designed very well for this type of spine, most notably the peacock image (photographed below). The images are all focused around a realistically drawn animal which then morphs (hence the title animorphia) into lots of different creatures and objects, this is done so seamlessly that it’s difficult to tell where the animal stops and the creatures start. A whole host of animals are featured from tigers to elephants, whales to toucans, butterflies to turtles, crocodiles to owls, cockerels to fish and so many more!

In terms of mental health, this is one that’s absolutely fantastic for distraction! It takes quite a lot of concentration to identify all of the parts of the picture let alone start choosing colours so this really is a book that will help you get through the days when your mind is racing and you need to be able to switch off. It’s not a book for the faint-hearted because each image takes a long time and a lot of work but it’s so worth it and the effects you can create are amazing! This is also an ideal book for the really creative amongst you because there are quite a number of images that just have outlines with large sections for you to add your own doodles to and a few written hints of what these could include. I’m personally not a fan of this because I really can’t draw but you could easily just colour those sections in blocks, or use them to practice your blending and shading or why not brave it and give doodling a go? You might just surprise yourself! The majority of the images are finished so if you’re not a fan of doodling, don’t let this put you off because there’s heaps that you can colour that only needs colour adding, no drawing talent needed! The images are really cohesive and aren’t “pretty” or girly so this is an ideal book for male and female colourers. The line thickness varies throughout but mainly sticks around the thin mark so you need fairly good vision and fine motor control, but definitely not perfect to enjoy this book! Some of the pictures are quite heavily shaded and dark which is just something to be aware of, most of the images have some shading and texture drawn in but not loads (check out the pictures below to decide if you like this feature or not). There is also a treasure hunt with 3 pages at the back of the book showing all of the items you can hunt for within the images. This book is ideal for those of you who have a fairly good attention span so that you can really get involved in the images and the content is so absorbing that you really do get out of your head and away from your thoughts and become immersed in what you’re colouring. The images have a variety of intricacy and detail levels so you can use simpler images on bad days and more detailed images on days where you’re able to focus better so it’s a great book for those of you with fluctuating conditions.

I would highly recommend this book for male and female colourers who love to doodle and draw, who love all things weird, wonderful, and quirky, and who love animals and nature mixed with alien creatures. This book is packed with amazing images that are great fun to colour and I was thrilled to hear that Kerby is currently working on a sequel called Imagimorphia which can be pre-ordered below. This book is stunning, overwhelming at times and one that really gets your creative juices flowing so grab your pencils and get colouring yourself quirky! ...more

Kerby Rosanes to ilustrator, którego poczynania obserwuję od wybuchu mody na kolorowanki dla dorosłych. Podziwiam jego szczegółowe, dopracowane i niezwykle pracochłonne prace, które stały się moją inspiracją i bodźcem do tworzenia własnych doodli. Niezwykle zachwyciła mnie więc wiadomość, że w Polsce pojawi się Animorphia jego autorstwa, jedna z najpiękniejszych kolorowanek, jakie kiedykolwiek widziałam.

Co jest tak niezwykłego w Animorphii? Przede wszystkim cudowna kreska Kerby'ego i jego talent. Ta książeczka to ponad czterdzieści ilustracji-rozkładówek (a więc ponad 80 stron!) tak pięknych, że zwlekam z ich pokolorowaniem w obawie przed ich spartoleniem. Poszczególne obrazki to mieszanina doodli, dziwacznych stworków z kosmosu, z pięknymi, niemal żywymi podobiznami najróżniejszych zwierząt: od motyli zaczynając, przez papugi przechodząc i na gepardach kończąc. To nie wszystko, bo prócz kolorowanek autor przygotował dodatkową atrakcję. Kilka ze stron to zapewnia sprawdzenie naszej spostrzegawczości, a inne pozwolą nam uwolnić naszą kreatywność - mamy bowiem możliwość uzupełnienia ilustracji według naszych zachcianek i umiejętności. Wiąże się to zarówno z rozwojem, jak i późniejszym poczuciem dumy.



Ze strony technicznej Animorphia oferuje grubszy niż w większości kolorowanek papier, na którym kredki nie tworzą większych zgrubień - nie jest to jednak gruba tektura. Dość poważnym problemem był dla mnie fakt, że każda ilustracja zajmuje dwie strony, a szycie jest dość ścisłe - sprawiało to, że dość kłopotliwe okazało się dokładne pokolorowanie fragmentów na wewnętrznym marginesie. Wielkość książki to 25 cm x 24 cm, 96 stron, okładka miękka.

Prawda jest okrutna, ale jestem tak zachwycona wytworami Kerby'ego, że mogłabym każdą stronę tej kolorowanki oprawić w ramki i broń Boże nie próbować dodawać do niej elementów kolorystyki. Czuję jednak, że przy zastosowaniu odpowiednich barw, można uzyskać olśniewające efekty. Zakochałam się miłością bezgraniczną i nieodwzajemnioną.

De platen zijn erg mooi gedetailleerd. Wat ik zelf jammer vind is dat veel platen verdeeld zijn over 2 bladzijden. En dan is kleuren in de randen altijd lastig. Lees de hele review op onze website

The designs are beautiful with all their details. I personaly find it a pity that the designs are separated into two pages. It makes it more difficult to colour the edges. You can read the total review on our website

The paper is good quality, it can take a tiny bit of water if you want but use cautiously, don’t flood the page. The images are on both sides, alcohol-based markers are not a good idea unless you don’t care about the image on the other side of the page you’re working on.
Overall I love this book. The images can be daunting and intimidating with the amount of detail involved but start somewhere and see where it goes. A good tip for crazy pictures like this is to warm yourself up with a limited palette and do one color at a time, that will help you see the balance changing and it won’t get too messy with a bazillion colors all unbalanced and nuts. Though that can work great as well in this book. I think anything goes with this, really. ...more

You can use your fantasy with the little critters but try to keep it "down to earth" with the different animals. It is not too detailed therefore not tiring to colour it. I love the double pages. The only thing that I do not like is the fact that there are quiet a few pages wich require to be filled in with doodles (which I am uncapable to do even though I tried, hahah). Maybe people who like illustrating like this, but it is not my cup of tea. All in all, a GREAT colouring book! ...more
