Hair Heaven Colouring book test vol. 1 : COPIC

Yes it is done! finally, 
And This 21st image 'TheEastWind Witchery'
It was my lifetime dream to have a Witchery.... home grown herb tinctures and selling colouring therapy books? How fun it would be right? that is how I came up with this image.

So I tried with copics and copic only.
and I was so worried cause the papers from my book is pretty thin.
and I saw many nasty complaints from same publisher's colouring book.
cause this one have pretty much one option for any book.
I'd say it is not impossible! I actually would say it is totally enjoyable. 
Only thing is there are lots, lots of hair on this image and I did get neck pain sitting and look down for long time. :) 

Copics I used. 

That white pen is Sakura gellpen for highlight.

Paper is thin so I put 3 Kraft paper card stock 
just to be sure there are no damage on next page

Close up shot here. :) 

Little tip I wanted to share when I colour.
I always keep in mind when I paint and colour.
that to have a focal point. most of the image 
yes it is girl's face and hair around face.
more vivid colour and more detail is used.
It makes the end result more interesting and dynamic. 


I am working on second book now in Korean theme.
:) lots of hanbok Korean dress with girly images 
I have sketched and working on it. 

Thanks for checking out.

Hair Heaven /UTC Colouring book Vol.1 - Interior Tour -

So, finally I got my proof. 
and It looked fine. so I decide to make it available everywhere.

30 artworks on the book. 

I picked out 30 images that fit best to Hair Heaven,
you can look at the video what images are on the book.

The paper is 60g white paper.

This topic was the biggest set back for me to release through createspace.
However as I spent a lot of time checking other companies, 
and the price point goes way too high. just to print, it starts from 10+ dollars. 
I will keep looking for improvement of better quality paper.
I'd say, it is not ideal for copic markers. 
I suggest photocopy the image on your favourite paper in that case.
However I will make follow up videos 
try on copics and different mediums as well. 


It is Not available in digital form.

Most of the images are available in digital form on TheEastWind Etsy shop 
Digital stamps are 'Original' file of the images that is on this book.
It is hand sketched > inked on computer (digitalized) with 300 dpi resolution.
which is original file that I vectorized for this book.
 I hope you understand. 


The book is 11$ everywhere. However, 

You can grab this today with 3$ Off using couponcode: FXQ3E2PV
