Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you my very own, properly published with an actual coloring book publisher, Dragon Adventure Coloring Book! It's available on Amazon and Create Space.

Kaleidoscopia Dragon Adventure by rachaelm5

The coloring folios I had available previously are now collectors' items. While I do have a few left, I won't be making any more of them outside of special requests or special occasions. The new coloring book is quite a bit more efficient in terms of production costs, and in terms of the sheer quantity of dragon drawings we managed to squish into it. 

The paper is a lighter weight than what I was using for my old coloring folios, but it still has a thickness and tooth that is good for markers, colored pencils, and crayons. The book is "permabound", which means you can't take the individual pages out. I'm pleased with the way the proof copy turned out, though, so I'm ready to unleash it to the world. :D

The front and back cover illustrations are my own work. The lettering, layout, and graphic design were done by the editor/publisher duo at Kaleidoscopia. 

On a side note: At the publisher's request, I have replaced quite a few of the coloring pages I had posted on DA with "display only" copies. There are still several of my favorite dragons available as coloring pages, and I will *certainly* be adding more in the future. I have 19 waiting for digital cleanup even as I type, and I'll post them as I finish the digital tidying phase.

Your art is amazing! I'm in love with it! I'm current colouring in some of your Distant Star Linearts. It's just sooooooooo amazing! I would love to do an art trade with you so I was wondering if you're open for those?

rachaelm5 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks very much!  I'll look forward to seeing your colors.

I am willing to do art trades, but I do not have open slots right now due to commission obligations.  I'll add you to my waiting list, and next time I'm ready to open the floodgates, you'll be notified.  :-)

Sure! Take your time with the commissions!

(I might get Prismacolour Pencils if my parents sallow it for Christmas.)
