Thiago Ultra is an illustrator from Brazil, born and raised in Rio De Janeiro. This book is one of three he has released, all centred around animals, flowers and fruit mandalas!
Doodlecraft includes some stunning original illustrations of animals, which is my favourite part of the book. Each creature is made up of different sections, whether it be flowers, leaves, Henna patterns or hearts- there is so much craziness making up each picture! The flowers and mandalas are great too; the former being ideal for practicing shading and blending, and the latter for those who like more complexity in their designs.
Take a look through the book in this video, or the slideshow below.
The book is quite thin, containing just 36 pages, but the designs are so detailed you will get a lot of colouring time out of each one. I love the fact that they're all hand drawn! Each illustration is printed on one side of the page, which is a good thing really because the paper quality isn't very thick.
Here's my finished page, coloured with Staedtler Triplus felt pens.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. You can find it on Amazon here:
