Art Yay Coloring!

As was determined in the vagina clown car thread, coloring is objectively awesome. I was a magic markers kind of girl myself, and I preferred coloring abstract geometric patterns to figures.

I must have had a dozen of these books. I would color in them all evening well into my teens. Shit, I still color in them once in a while. In fact, it's been too long. Weekend mission: get some coloring done.

I might have to get markers to inspire me. :hyper: I still get weak at the knees at a set of 30 Caran d'Ache markers in the metal box. Such fine points, such rich color, no bleeding or splattering. LOVE THEM.

Share your coloring love here, or if you must front, ascribe your passion for the art to some non-existent niece.

I am traditionally a colored pencil guy, but the power of Crayons cannot be denied. I never was a big marker fan. I find them too inconsistent.

Crayons don't do thin lines well enough for my preferred coloring books. (See above.) I do love them for their many greatnesses, though, including smell, ability to sharpen, textural variety on the page, that ultra-smooth saturated texture when you've been laying it on for like an hour, all that stuff.

I think Crumb's on the right track with the colored pencils. Precise enough for tight spaces, but lacking the inconsistency of wet markers. :unnod:

They also offer a more restrained version of that crayon high-gloss texture. They just can't match the color brilliance of a marker.

I still have my box of 96 Crayolas. I would love a set of nice colored pencils (my preference). I would color anything, but I eventually did prefer the geometric shapes like liv.

Oh hey, those are Caran D'Ache markers. I meant we had the coloured pencils in a metal box.

OMG, I'm not as old skool as some of you. I'm learning how to color in the fancy new hi-tech digital age. Behold, Ms. Marvel as drawn by Bruce Timm and colorated by me.

OMG YES! We used to get those all the time growing up. Apparently the selection has fallen off dramatically since then, however. I was sorely disappointed the last time I looked through a bin of them. Mostly Disney and other big names. There used to be really good, original work out there, a hell of a lot of fun to color. Of the ones we did the best on, I remember one that was a knight on a hill outside a castle, one that was this weird sci-fi/fantasy... thing... with someone on a strange animal with a strange sword and a strange pistol and moons and planetary ice rings in the background, and I remember one that was a stained-glass window kinda thing. Oh, and one with some spaceships that my dad did. Very cool.

They didn't have nuthin' fancy like that when I was a kid. Barbie and Disney and some generic shit was pretty much it, I think. But boy, I could color all night.

Prismacolor Double-Ended Markers :faint: The set of 156 is a steal at $308. Srsly if I had it, I'd spend it. I really, really would. And just to color, too, none of that fancy graphic artist stuff.

Okay, which one of you guys is going to buy me this insanely awesome and insanely expensive colored pencil set? Five hundred colors, people. 5-0-0. You get a subscription (33 bucks a month) and they send you twenty five colors each month over 20 months.
