“Dark Beauty: Manga girls” My second coloring book for children and adults.

Hello!

More than half of the year has passed since I`ve written something here. And all this time I was working on my second coloring book which is already finished and released on November 8th 2017. This coloring book was inspired by the dark vibes and aesthetic. Needless to say I was alway driven to and enchanted by dark and somber things but my drawings still keep this girly smiley “kawaii” mood on them. Darkness can be not only gloomy and sad but cheerful and funny as well.

One of the greatest examples of funny aspect of the darkness is loved by everybody Halloween, which inspired some drawings in this book as well (I`ve drawn a lot of witches, pumpkins and cats). I was intended to finish my book by Halloween but I failed this personal deadline which I set for myself and delayed the release for 1 month.

Darkness has recently been popularised in modern pop-culture, even kid’s toys nowadays depict zombies and vampires. I was very surprised to see my niece’ doll which looks like monster… and she loves it. So I guess there is nothing wrong with adding something dark into coloring book.

Moreover darkness for me is not associating with the evil, bad or cruelty, for me it is something associating with elegance, grace and delicacy from gothic-victorian style, deep velvet calmness of abandoned cemeteries, slumber of the Moon hiding in clouds and eternal beauty of night.

I was working hard and I have improved my draing skills a bit while I was working on this coloring book and now I am finally able to take it in my hands. I am really happy about the pring quallit and cover but I wish the paper itself be more thick to use markers or watercolor on it now it suits btter for colored pencis only.

“Dark Beauty” coloring book contains gothic, victorain historical and fantasy gowns, halloween/spooky creatures, art-nuvo frames and just cute japanese manga girls. This coloring book is a collection of 26 original hand-drawn designes  inspired by the dark aesthetic. Coloring book for both children and adults featuring art of shoujo manga and anime style, laces, flowers and pictures of different complexity level. All pictures in this booke are one-sided. It features: witches, werewolf, lolita-fashion girls, mermaid, dark fairy, fantasy creatres, vampires, cats, pumpkins, gargoyles, ravens and so on.

I have plans and ideas for two more coloring books in this series and some other.

But for now I want to concentrate on my manga first ^_^/~

Thanks for the attention!

All my social media have been suffering from the lack of updates lately. I got a heavy flu with complications and my productivity and social activity were somewhere around zero. But I did draw actually (on paper only) sitting by the computer was kinda hard…

But those “couch drawing” gave me a great opportunity to manage one drawing project which I was thinking about for a long time but never actually thought it could be real, until I discovered something interesting from YouTube =D and now I feel like I could do literally everything. I just need more time.

This drawing project is not a manga, but something different and still demands a lot of drawing and post drawing work. And it is a book. A small experimental coloring book featuring my original designs of 26 shoujo-manga girls in different styles and outfits ^_^ and that was a lot of fun to do!

You know, I always had a sense that my line arts look like pages from colouring books for girls before I color them or tone with screentones.

I was going to self publish it with Createspace and Amazon.com. The funniest thing is for me living on the opposite side of the Globe – that it is even cheaper to buy few copies from Amozon then to order the same few copies in my country and the delivery cost is almost the same O_O WTF?! Lol.

I am already waiting printed proof copies for my one-shot manga o(^.^)o Yay! Want to draw more coloring books a have so much of ideas! Nothing is gonna stop me from fulfilling my wishes.

 I mostly draw my original characters from my comics but I didn’t want to include them into colouring books, because they are mine and it would feel like a betrayal for them. So, these girls from colouring book were just spontaneously drawn sketches or few of them I was thinking to draw a manga with, but I gave up those ideas later. And when I put all the drawings together I have finally decided to do what I wanted. Because “why not?” I can.

If people would like it I would be happy, if not… Well… I still can think of it like an artbook of my line-arts ^_^ and after all, I’ve got a lot of nieces and friends to give presents to. I’ve got nothing to lose, so why not to try then? ^_^

Could you imagine my surprise, when this book actually has started to sell. I was really shocked (and glad)! Thank everyone for purchasing a copy of my coloring book for children and adults!

Currently I`m working on the second coloring book of this series.

Thanks for the attention!

Sincerely, Heiseihi.
