I have been trying to get my hands on a Hannah Lynn book to review for months now, but for one reason or another it hasn't happened- until now! The simply stunning girls Hannah portrays are a delight just to look at, never mind colour, and I knew they would be perfect for practising alcohol blending.
Hannah is a self-taught artist from Idaho USA, who draws everything by hand using watercolour pencil and ink- incredible when you look at her illustrations as they're too perfect not to be digital! Fans have collected her artwork on Etsy for years now, and now her work is available in 12 different colouring books, from a miniature sized 3.5 x 2.5 inches to full sized A4.
This particular book is filled with ladies of all different themes from mermaids and witches to fairies and princesses. Hannah's art has a very sweet, magical feel, all the women designed in a wide-eyed 'Manga' style with beautiful flowing hair and opulent clothing. There are 50 illustrations in this book and each one is just as lovely as the next.
The paper is average printer paper quality & thickness which is a shame, but all the illustrations are printed on one side so it shouldn't matter much. As for complexity some have more detail than others, but they are all generally very similar as far as intricacy is concerned. There isn't really any tiny areas to fill so fineliners aren't massively required.
Here is my finished page, coloured with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I absolutely love how it turned out! I'm an avid reader and decided to add some of my favourite book titles to the spines :)
