Chrysalis Confusion

Corgi Pup is watching butterflies emerge! Wait...is that a butterfly?....

I dunno about where you live but there's been piles of cicadas where I am and they only just now slowed down. We were literally tripping over them!

 

Ocean Coloring Ahoy, and Coloring Book Number Two is Almost Ready!

It’s June! It showed up so fast, I didn’t have a chance to do coloring pages for May?! Where did the time go?

However, I’ve been working on the next printed coloring book for Princess Pups, which took a chunk of May from me! Here’s a work in progress version of the cover (which clearly shows I don’t have a title for this coloring book yet). Just like the first coloring book (which you can buy over here), the second will include extra goodies not on the website, like Spot the Differences, mazes and more! I’ll announce once it’s all finished up and available to buy. Hopefully I’ll have thought of a title for it by then?…

For June, the theme I went with was the ocean! All the pups are enjoying the ocean in multiple ways, start off with Pug Pup, Corgi Pup, and Fluff Pup sailing in a wee boat! It looks like an ocean critter is waving at them?

Corgi Pup realizes a cheeky octopus is waving at them!

Meanwhile, Teacup Pup and Scruffy Pup have found a lovely area of the ocean to go snorkeling! Scruffy Pup has managed to find yet another hermit crab pal as Teacup Pup gets a friendly smile from a large fish! I looked much too long at snorkeling images while drawing this, and then kinda winged it as far as how they looked…cuz they’re on some puppies after all 😛

There’s so much swimming around near Teacup Pup and Scruffy Pup!

The scuba image was so active, it was the obvious choice for this month’s time lapse! If you watch carefully, you can see all the times I futzed with those snorkeling masks. Remember you can nab these coloring pages and many others (including other summer themed ones!) in the coloring pages section of the site!

April Showers Bring (April) Coloring Pages?!

Somehow I haven’t made an April showers joke that I can find in past coloring page posts?!…Anyhow! This month’s coloring pages have a rainy theme for some of our pup friends. If it’s too rainy or stormy outside, staying inside to color Princess Pups is much better! 🙂

Both of this month’s coloring pages started as wee little pencil doodles in the small 4×4-ish sketchbook that I keep in my bag when I go out. The first one features Corgi Pup and Scruffy Pup out in the rainy weather. Corgi Pup is super prepped with her umbrella, boots and super-cute rain slicker. But Scruffy Pup seems to be treating her umbrella like a small boat?…

Corgi Pup is wondering why Scruffy Pup has her umbrella upside-down…

I really like how the sketch for this month’s second coloring page turned out. I was able to snap a picture of it with my phone, drop it into Clip Studio Pro, and ink right on top! That doesn’t always happen because I tend to change my mind on my rough sketches or make them too rough to ink from without some tighter pencils. But I managed to nail what I wanted with my sketch of Pug Pup on a log with frogs! I did change one small frog to be peeping past Pug Pup’s ears a bit different when I inked it, but that was a tiny change for the better.

Here’s a timelapse of my drawing of Pug Pup and her froggy pals. And remember you can download these pages and a pile more over on the Coloring Pages section to keep you entertained on rainy days!

Lucky Bunnies and Flower Chains to Color?!

It’s March! It’s trying to be spring again! And this year, St. Patrick’s Day is in the same month as Easter…which seemed like a good jumping off point for a new coloring page! Fluff Pup loves to make fabric items like blankets and hats. She wants to help bunnies dress the part for St. Patrick’s Day this year! Fluff Pup makes sure that these bunnies have cute hats, ties, the works!

Fluff Pup works diligently on creating leprechaun outfits for some bunnies!

For this month’s second coloring pages, Corgi Pup and TeaCup Pup have found lots of spring time flowers. And they’ve made lovely crowns and necklaces with them! Corgi Pup seems extra pleased with her flowery adornments.

Corgi Pup and TeaCup Pup trade their usual crowns for flower ones!

Both of these pages started as wee physical sketchbook doodles and I’m delighted how they turned out. Here’s a time lapse for the flowers page. See if you can spot when I decided to make the flowers bigger. As always, you can download big stacks of coloring pages over here!

Spread Coloring Love!

Just like that, it’s suddenly February?! My kid still has Christmas candy (and Halloween, oops!) but I wanna buy him Valentine chocolates too! There’s more heart-shaped silly sweetness to be had with this month’s coloring pages. Although the first one is a bit on the messy side. It seems Pug Pup has a rather large box of chocolates and some of it ended up on her head?! It leaves TeaCup Pup rather startled!

Pug Pup ate a GIANT chocolate but missed the cherry that was on it.

For the second coloring page, I had some trouble deciding on what it should look like, but I knew Scruffy Pup should bring some lovey gifts to one of the Commando Cats. In one of the earliest Princess Pups shorts, the Pups track down Pug Pup’s missing Valentines to find out that one of the Commando Cats took them – because he had none! But this year, Scruffy Pup is bringing that poor kitty multiple Valentine goodies right on time!

That fluffy Commando Cat feels so loved!

Like I mentioned, I had some challenges with this page because it felt like something was missing. Originally, I had Scruffy Pup just sitting and handing presents to the Commando Cat. I realized it would be more fun if Scruffy Pup was dressed as cupid and floating! Magic! You can see the old sketch in this month’s timelapse video, where I yank my sketch of Scruffy Pup into the air and change it up. There’s even a tiny doodle of the new idea when I think of it. Magic again!

As usual, you’ll find these coloring pages and lots more (including past Valentine themed ones!) over in the coloring page section!
