Earlier this year I had the opportunity to create a colouring page for art agency Jehane, after a request for submissions for a special underwater-themed colouring book.
Jehane received over 600 submissions and I can imagine it was hard choosing the final designs. My design did not make it into the colouring book however the artworks in the colouring book are amazing and I urge you to check them out (especially if you love colouring books).
The best part is that 100% of profits from this colouring book go to the Sea Change Project.
And even better…. I am going to include my colouring page as a free download in my next newsletter! If you haven’t already signed up to my newsletter just click here 🙂
Here is my colouring page!
I coloured it in myself to see what it might look like – I enjoyed making up some crazy colour combinations for the fish, and yes, you will most likely see these again in a pattern design soon!
Curious to know how I created the colouring page? I actually used an iPad, Apple Pencil, and the app Procreate. I have only just starting to learn Procreate and thought it would be an easy (although time-consuming) way to create the colouring page.
I used my own underwater photos and traced the outlines of the fish, then took these illustrations into Photoshop (on my computer) to create the final composition.
Here are my original underwater photos:
I actually quite enjoyed creating the colouring page and it has sparked an urge to do some more artwork like this.
What do you think of my underwater colouring page?
