Today is my tenth day creating my own coloring pages. So far, so good. I have improved significantly in the number of pages and quality of drawing that I’m able to come up with - two done sketches and one draft sketch. Not bad!

“Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.” ~Chinese Proverb

I thought I should work on cleaning up my inked images. That means adding another menu to my daily activities - drawing, inking, scanning, clean-up.

Each time I start a new thing, it’s almost always an uphill climb. It could be tedious work and really┬ádraining. At times, I wanted to take a break and do something else. However, after all that I’ve been through it feels like I’ve grown into the habit of making my coloring pages everyday.

One good thing I’ve developed from starting my “Adult Coloring Pages” Challenge is a stronger ability to focus. Before, I hopped from one task or activity to another when what I was doing that’s meant for the long haul did not give me immediate results. Now, I know where I’m heading and my mind and body are all targeted to reaching my destination.

Adult Coloring Pages: Clean-up Job Results

I’ve done some clean-up tasks before but still, it is something where I’m still slow at. That means I have to work harder and smarter to learn the trade.

After hours of on-and-off work today, I managed to come up with two images. Take a look at the before and after images:

This is the first one:

How did I fare? Does it inspire you to color the page?

Please let me know in the comment below or send me a note and I’ll send you this coloring page.

Better still, join me in this challenge. It’s never too late to start as the adult coloring books market is exploding! You don’t want to get left out. But even if you don’t get into publishing, just the act of making your own coloring pages is delightful!
