These coloring page illustrations were originally sketched in pencil and then pulled into the ProCreate app on my iPad Pro. I used an Apple pencil to add more details, move the elements around until I got them just right, and then created final clean line designs for both print and digital reproduction. Each illustration took anywhere from 8 to 12 hours to complete … sometimes even longer, and every one of my illustrations are a labor of love.
That said, I have to mention some IMPORTANT LEGALESE …..

PRINTING & COLORING TIPS:
You can use an inkjet printer (that’s what I have) or a laser printer (which is ideal if you'll be using paint or markers). When you open the PDF, select the highest quality print your printer allows. In your print settings, you might also to able to expand the image to fill more of the page (depending on your printer’s capabilities). Because I create vector files, you should be able to increase/decrease the size of each image with no loss of line quality. The same goes for the added bonus grey-line versions.
I use watercolor pencils to lay down my base colors and have yet to have problems smudging the ink from my Epson inkjet … but you may want to experiment. I also print my images on card stock (though plain paper is fine, too) as I like the thickness and it is less likely to warp or bleed through. Once my water-colored areas are dry (it doesn’t usually take too long) I go back over those colors with a variety of colored pencils in light layers to add detail and depth. You can print several copies of this illustration (white paper is great, but colored paper is a lot of fun, too) and experiment with different papers, color palettes and techniques.
I test each one of my designs before I let them go out into the world. You can see my coloring process and samples on my Instagram account (@RubyCharmColors) and on my Wordpress site (https://rubycharmillustrations.wordpress.com). I’ll be posting tips and stories as time goes on, so give me a follow!

These are absolutely gorgeous! I can't imagine a better way to spend the few dollars this costs!! So worth every cent. These are super easy to download and use! THANK YOU!
Amazing stuff girl! I’ll be back
At first, I didn't know which of her illustrations to buy and now I don't know which one to colour first! Wonderful, wonderful illustrations and such a change from a lot of the "adult" colouring pages/books that are more suitable for 8-year-olds. But that's just my opinion ;)
Beautiful! Can't wait to color them! I'll be shopping here again!
