Awesome book. Great idea to have it all together. I have over 20 sets of artist pencils. Lol. And I do have laminated sheets I made with color charts... But that is neat... Great showing of it
I too was really disappointed that there simply weren't enough colour charts for various pencil brands, that was really the only reason why it still isn't a part of my collection.
I do commend artist as it is an ingenious idea, just a bit lacking only for the above reason. Damn shame really!
I recently purchased a copy of the book by yam puff, I haven't started to fill it in, I am sure I will find it a very useful reference book, I love colouring flowers I have a large collection of flower colouring books, have you heard of a Illustrator called Queenie Wong, I have 2 of her books and they are a dream to colour.
I would not pay for such a book. There are color charts for FREE for EVERY pencil out there. I've taken my color charts and put them in a binder. You can find charts that have blocks for color blends, hair, leaves, and most that are included in this book for free on the web. Again, I've printed mine out and put them in a 3 ring binder.
Now, I would absolutely have purchased a book that had color blends that went together, showed how to color hair, leaves, ect with certain colors! You can find some of this on the web, and I've borrowed from this (like leaves on Pinterest), giving credit to the artist even though it's just my binder and I'm the only one who will see it.
THAT's what I need help with! SHOW me how to color hair (and give me the name/number of the pencils you're using), SHOW me different colors to put together for leaves. Show me the colors that make neat blends (polys, prismas, lyras, and more). Someone could make a lot of money including that, not just blank pages!
I applaud the creator of that book. She is filling a niche many colourists want/need, although you can already get what she charges for free off the web. Pinterest has all of the charts she has, down to the boxes for blending, hair, eyes, ect. (Really hope the author credited the people she took the ideas from!) She just didn't take it far enough, or make it helpful enough. The "book" could have been so, so much more.
