I am here to give a completely different viewpoint from almost everyone else here. I love the book, it is dark and moody and mysterious, not for the faint hearted but a stunning book. Yes it is darkly shaded but that adds to the mood and you can definitely colour it in amazingly. I belong to a facebook page where lots of us are colouring from this book and everyone loves it. Several people had looked at these previous reviews and decided not to buy it until they saw some pictures from it done. My review is buy it if you like something different but if you want to colour pastel shades and pretty this is not for you.I have added some completed pages as well as one I have started.
I own a number of colouring books. Plainly designed outlines printed on paper. This book isn't like that at all. All of the images have already been shaded/crosshatched and are really quite dark. I don't mean dark as in grisly dark either. As an artist, I honestly can't see how you'd be able to colour this book successfully.Aside from that it's a nice book for any macabre Alice fan. It's nothing like American McGee's Alice but it's still a creepy twist on a classic.I'm a die hard Alice fan which is why I won't be returning the book despite being so disappointed by it. I'll simply appreciate an illustrators take on the classic.
I really like this book, the quality of the pictures are excellent. Yes they are quite dark and shaded but this gives the book a moody and nightmarish feel - that's what the book is all about. This book is perfect for anyone who wants something a little different to the norm. I also belong to a Facebook group colouring this book and I have seen some truly gorgeous pictures.
I love this book, it has some great twists on the original Alice illustrations and the drawings are amazing on their own. A lot of people are saying that there is too much shade work by the illustrator for this to be considered a coloring book and I was worried about whether or not I could make these look good, but if anything the shading helps make the colors look even better. With the exception of maybe two or three pages none of the drawings should be ao heavily shaded that you cant do anything with them. I just wish there were more drawings in this book besides the 10-15 we get because I feel like there could have been so much more given the source materials.
As other reviews have stated this is a very dark coloring book but perfect for the colored pencil artist who like a little dark and morbid. i for one LOVE this book!
I love this book. The existing shading doesn't detract from this in any way, it simply darkens the photos, adding a nightmarish feeling. It's exactly like the DC Comics that you can color now, shaded and crosshatched because that's how dimension is added. It's great, I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys coloring.
Several comments talk about how darkly shaded it is. I haven't found this to be an issue. I'm currently using markers, but I bought one for a friend and she used colored pencils with no issues. There is a little bleed through with markers; however, it isn't much and 9 times out of 10 there is a word page on the opposite side making it a nonissue. They are surprisingly detailed. If you are looking for a run of the mill, straight line art style coloring book, then you will fall into the hate category. However if you are looking for a detailed, interesting, takes awhile to color, but does the leg work on shading/color changing then you will fall in to the love category. I most certainly will be buying from this artist again.
I absolutely love the graphics in this book. I wish there were more books like this out there. It reminds me of Alice: Madness Returns, which just so happens to be my favorite video game. I love the dark shadows.
