Hey guys! :)

 

So...I have a question. Before you answer, we're all friends here. I ask no one makes fun of anyone and if you are made fun of, ignore them. Does anyone here, particularly the teens and adults, still color in coloring books? :) Apparently it's a trending thing right now.

 

I'm an adult and I do. I'll even show you online pictures of the coloring book:

 

 

 

 

 

I have a whole book of this.

 

If you don't (especially if you're an artist) you should consider it. I read on facebook some comments people made under a coloring book video and apparently when they're creative juices weren't flowing, coloring helped :)

I've seen that! I kind of

I've seen that! I kind of like the idea of things that used to be considered childlike are now considered 'normal'.

Down with the Baby Boomers and Generation X!

 

I've heard it's good for people with anxiety, fidgeting issues and ADHD.

 

I saw a nice book at a curiousity store a month ago. I wish I'd bought it. It was a tattoo colouring book. Being a tattooist, it would have been great to practice colouring and gradients on. €25 felt like way too much to spend on a colouring book though.

That sounds like a lot for a coloring book. :)

Yeah it does, doesn't

Yeah it does, doesn't it? 

For that price I'd rather just print my own designs and colour them traditionally. I can get printer ink for less.

 

The only downside is that I'd have to draw designs. It takes time and it's less beneficial ;_;

Believe it or not.. I HATE coloring. It just annoys me so much that I'm coloring someone else's art. That's why I honestly have to create my own picture THEN color it...But I will say one thing. I used to never color my artwork until some friends on Instagram got me into using Copic markers. They're amazing! :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: Please don't think I was being immature or mean. It was my opinion. I can agree though, I'm not really the sentimental type here on the forums. :(

 

I would love to see your art by the way. I haven't seen many of your artworks!

Granted it may not look like much, but this wet heap of rock packs more than a few surprises. Life here is amazing, just not for the faint of heart.

"Into a Fantasy"

 

I have a dream

You are there

High above the clouds somewhere

Rain is falling from the sky

But it never touches you

You're way up high

 

No more worries

No more fears

You have made them disappear

Sadness tried to steal the show

But now it feels like many years ago

 

And I

I will be with you every step (Hey! Hey!)

Tonight

I found a friend in you

And I'll keep you close forever

 

Come fly with me (oh-oh oh-oh)

Into a fantasy (oh-oh oh-oh)

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

We can fly all day long

Show me the world

Sing me a song

Tell me what the future holds

You and me will paint it all in gold!

 

And I

I will believe your every word (Hey! Hey!)

'Cause I

I have a friend in you

We'll always stay together

 

Come fly with me (oh-oh oh-oh)

Into a fantasy (oh-oh oh-oh)

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

(Hey!)

 

And I

I will be with you every step

Tonight

I found a friend in you

And I keep you close forever

 

Come fly with me

Into a fantasy

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

Come fly with me (oh-oh oh-oh)

Into a fantasy (oh-oh oh-oh)

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

(Hey!)

 

 

"Where No One Goes"
 

Let the wind carry us
To the clouds, hurry up, alright
We can travel so far
As our eyes can see

We go where no one goes
We slow for no one
Get out of our way

I'm awake when up in the skies
There's no break up so high, alright
Let's make it our own,
Let's savor it

We go where no one goes
We slow for no one
Get out of our way

[2x]
We slow for no one
We go where no one goes

We go where no one goes

 

 

 

 

 

"Sticks And Stones"



Eyes open wide, blinded by the sun now
Orange and white, dark red, green and yellow
Rainbow colors! Do not hide, see the view! 
Step aside, go through!

Against the light, too strong, blow a fuse now
Everything bright, new songs, burning shoes
The look in your eyes! Break our bones into half! 
Scream and shout and do laugh!

Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)
Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see - You'll see

Inn um ermar, upp hryggjarsúluna
Yfir skóg, flæðir niður brekkuna
Allt upp í loft! Ég mun aldrei gleyma! 
Því ég mun aldrei!

Hleypur um, rífur, leysir flækjurnar
(Upp með rótum) Með blik í augum!
Stórmerki, undur, brjótum bein í sundur!

Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)
Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Right beyond the trees
Show you how you'll be

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see - You'll see

Stay close to me... Count one, two, three
Up in your sleeves... You're right behind me
Stay close to me... Count one, two, three
Up in your sleeves... Burst through the seams

Open your eyes and see
You'll see (You'll see...)

 

 

 

Bilbo and Smaug 

 

 

Bilbo Baggins: I did not come to steal from you, O Smaug the Unassessably Wealthy. I merely wanted to gaze upon your magnificence, to see if you were as great as the old tales say. I did not believe them. 
Smaug: [strikes a pose] And do you, NOW? 
Bilbo Baggins: Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of your enormity, O Smaug the Stupendous... 
Smaug: Do you think flattery will keep you alive? 
Bilbo Baggins: No, no... 
Smaug: No, indeed! 
 
Smaug: Well, thief! I smell you, I hear your breath, I feel your air. Where are you? 
[moves in Bilbo's direction] 
Smaug: Where are you? 
[Bilbo runs, but Smaug hears his footsteps across the gold and follows] 
Smaug: Come now, don't be shy... step into the light. 
 
Smaug: There is something about you. Something you carry, something made of gold... but far more PRECIOUS... 
[Bilbo is assaulted by Sauron's eye and pulls off the ring] 
Smaug: [sees him] There you are, Thief in the Shadows! 
 
Thorin Oakenshield: Here! You witless worm! 
Smaug: YOU! 
Thorin Oakenshield: I'm taking back what you stole. 
Smaug: You will take NOTHING from me, dwarf. I laid low your warriors of old. I instilled terror in the hearts of men. I AM KING UNDER THE MOUNTAIN! 
Thorin Oakenshield: This is not your kingdom! These are dwarf lands. This is dwarf gold! And we will have our revenge! 
 
Smaug: You think you can deceive me, Barrel-Rider? You have come from Lake Town! This is some sort of scheme hatched between these filthy dwarves and those miserable tub-trading Lakemen, those snivelling cowards with their Longbows and Black Arrows! Perhaps it is time I paid them a visit! 
Bilbo Baggins: Oh, no... This isn't their fault! Wait! You can not go to Lake Town! 
Smaug: You care about them, do you? Good! Then you can watch them DIE! 
 
[Smaug is smothered with a deluge of molten gold] 
Smaug: [rises up] Revenge? REVENGE? I will show you revenge! 
[takes flight towards Lake Town] 
Smaug: I am fire! I am... death! 
 
[Smaug has been keeping the Arkenstone away from Bilbo throughout their talk, however he lets it fall within reach of Bilbo] 
Smaug: I am almost tempted to let you take it, if only to see Oakenshield suffer, watch it destroy him, watch it corrupt his heart and drive him mad... But I think not. I think our little game ends here! 
 
Smaug: Did you think I did not know this day would come, that a pack of canting dwarves would come crawling back to the Mountain? 
 
Smaug: You seem familiar with my name, but I don't remember smelling your kind before. Who are you and where do you come from, may I ask? 
Bilbo Baggins: I come from under the hill... 
Smaug: Underhill? 
Bilbo Baggins: ...and under the hill and over the hills my paths lead. And through the air! I am he who walks unseen! 
Smaug: Impressive titles. What else do you claim to be? 
[leans forward to smell Bilbo] 
Bilbo Baggins: Luck-Wearer... Ring-Winner... 
Smaug: Lovely titles... 
Bilbo Baggins: Barrel-Rider! 
Smaug: Barrels! Now that is interesting! 
 
Smaug: And what of your dwarf friends? Where are they hiding? 
Bilbo Baggins: Dwarves... No. No dwarves here. You've got that all wrong. 
Smaug: Oh, I don't think so, Barrel-Rider! They sent you in here to do their dirty work, while they skulk about outside! 
Bilbo Baggins: Truly, you are mistaken, O Smaug Chiefest and Greatest of All Calamities... 
Smaug: You have nice manners for a thief, and a LIAR! I know the smell and taste of dwarves, no one better! 
 
Smaug: The King Under the Mountain is dead! I took his throne, and ate his people like a wolf among sheep! I kill where I wish, WHEN I wish! My armour is iron, no blade can pierce me! 
 
Smaug: Oakenshield sent you in here for the Arkenstone, didn't he? 
Bilbo Baggins: No no no no no, I have no idea what you're talking about... 
Smaug: Don't bother denying it! I guessed his foul purpose some time ago! But it matters not. Oakenshield will fail... 
 
Smaug: You have been used, Thief in the Shadows. You were only ever a means to an end. The coward Oakenshield has weighed the value of your life and found it to be worth nothing...

I love coloring! So relaxing!

I love coloring! (I'm 17) It's so relaxing and rewarding. I really suck at drawing, but I enjoy adding color, so coloring books are the way to go. I always pick the pages with the most detail to fill in. As it so happens, my profile pic is actually from a online coloring page.

I Do!

I sometimes color but I like to color my own Art, almost everyone at my School says that I always get the Colors right, I usually like to combine a few Colors to make it more Real and the right color. I might share my Art when the Spambots dissapear on Monday, I never shared my Art before, not Hand Drawing Art... :/

I'm 17, and yes, I do color! In fact, I have a HTTYD coloring book on my desk for when I'm stressed out. I know the book is meant for kids, but hey! Nothing cheers me up better than coloring in Toothless to look like Ash XD

Color!

The more color a drawing has, the more happy, vivid and bright I tend to think it is. That's why I love to color!

Usually, I use Crayons, but they can get really messy. I tried Oil Pastel once. The turnout was so beautiful with Oil Pastels, and so, I started using them, but they tend to look messy if you don't "scrape" them.

And, as for the coloring books, I can color a 50-page one in two weeks, but a 5-page book can take me one hour to complete.

I have a collection of Coloring Books, and I suppose I have about 65 books or so, the thickest book was about 180 pages! :3

The first time I did it I was. However, my boss already thinks I'm a bit of a freak (And he's not wrong) so I see no harm in being just that little bit weirder. The one day one of my assisstant managers asked if she could color with me since the store was so slow and we didn't have any stocking to do. I'm super self-conscious myself, but I've gotten really good at hiding it lol.
