From Penguin Books we received this colouring book for writing a review about. We thank them very much for this.
Information you can find on the internet: Planets, galaxies, villains, heroes, the Doctor, the Tardis and the time vortex – all intricately illustrated in this timey-wimey colouring book packed with original Doctor Who art. With 45 stunning images to colour and classic and timeless quotes from the beloved TV show, this out-of-this-world colouring book is perfect for any creative Doctor Who fan.
Doctor Who was a British science fiction series about a time traveller. This series was very popular and now they’ve made a colouring book about it. A nice, firm book with pages printed one-sided. Firm, white paper that feels very nice. The book contains various designs; detailed ones but also very easy designs. I will give you an idea first by showing some examples from the book.
On my first design I used the KOI brush pens. These are waterbased pens with a brush. The ink of these brush pens is rather moist but the paper absorbs it well. It dries up well and doesn’t run over the lines. The paper bubbles a little but when it has dried this disappears completely. Even when using multiple layers, in order to create shades, the paper remains well and doesn’t bulge. The ink doesn’t press through. That wouldn’t have been a problem here however, because the pages are printed on one side only. I coloured the background using a Derwent pastel pencil.
I really enjoyed colouring this design.
I coloured my next design from this book with Prismacolor premier. These wax-like pencils attach very well to this paper. The pigment of these pencils is easy to apply.
It’s a real joy colouring with these. I coloured the larger spaces with a Bruynzeel Pastel pencil. This also works very nice on this paper. It attaches well and is easy to rub. You can use lots of materials on this paper.
I like this book and its possibilities a lot. What I really like is that the pages are printed on one side only. This enlarges the range of materials that can be used very much. When using markers it is to be advised putting a piece of cardboard or paper between the pages. The designs in this book are diverse. There’s something nice in there for every colourist. Thinking about the series from back then, you can colour for hours and enjoy. I think this book is a nice addition to your colouring books.
