Outdoor Movie Night

Watching movies outside is super fun! There was a drive-in theater that I used to go to that had the best snacks and burgers at the first house I lived in after college. The pups don't have cars though, so they only go to outdoor theaters without any sort of driving in or out!

 

Halloween Coloring Delight!

Brand new coloring pages for Spooky Season are here! First up is Scruffy Pup dressed as a scarecrow.

Scruffy Pup wants to be a scarecrow, but doesn’t seem to scare crows…

I have to give a shoutout to the wonderful Clip Studio Pro brush set by Ron Chan called Double Outline, which you can get on his Gumroad shop. It made drawing flannel patterns and hat details so much easier!

The other Halloweenie Themey coloring page this week features TeaCup Pup and Corgi Pup enjoying candy.

TeaCup Pup uses her wand to send candy pouring toward a Pirate Corgi Pup, arrr!

However, make sure you unwrap your candy before eating it and please don’t try to pour it all in your mouth at once! (That’s my Mom voice coming through). The costumes that TeaCup Pup and Corgi Pup are wearing are from the first Halloween comic that I drew with the pups. It’s still one of my favorite comics 🙂

Birthday Coloring Fun!

September is my birthday month! Which means it was time to do a coloring page with all of the Princess Pups snacking on a SUPER GIANT BIRTHDAY CAKE:

All of the Princess Pups super enjoy birthday cake just like me

My birthday was super relaxing and also involved a cake, although it wasn’t as tall as the one I drew for the pups. I got some super cute handmade ceramics for my birthday from Binx Ceramics that are delightful: Halloween, a dino, and animals in Christmas sweaters, I love them all <3

Super duper fun ceramic birthday goodies!

The Halloween ones are currently residing in our Spooky Town decorations that we setup for the year. The Pups will need to have some Halloween coloring adventures next time!

Coloring Page Process?!

There are new coloring pages available for you to save and color! But how do they get made? Here’s a quick sketch comparison blog post, just for you!

First, up is Teacup Pup and Pug Pup hanging out:

Teacup Pup is so much smaller but loves to sing!

This color page actually came about from a doodle session in my physical sketchbook. The comic is drawn digitally, but I find that I can brainstorm and sketch best on a sketchbook with a pencil in my hand. You might spot another currently available coloring page in sketch form on the page as well!

A chunk of sketchbook coloring ideas, including the one that lead to a recent coloring page!

Meanwhile, the other new coloring page idea actually showed up digitally when I was working on the Symphony comic. Scruffy Pup uses a sousaphone, which are a bit tricky to draw. So I sketched it out in my digital comic file to use as a reference.

A layer hiding within my pencil layers held a rough sketch of Scruffy Pup with a sousaphone that I used while drawing the other 4 panels of the comic.

Scruffy Pup just looked so proud with that sousaphone, it made sense to copy over that reference sketch to make a coloring page of it!

A reference sketch turned coloring page!

So far, the sousaphone drawing is the only one to crop up unexpectedly asking to become a coloring page. But maybe I’ll have more of these surprise coloring page ideas in the future.

Bath Tubs and the Wild West Need Coloring!

New coloring pages are available! First off is a page inspired by the Morning Routine comic! Although Fluff Pup and Scruffy Pup were the only pups taking a bath last time, this illustration has all the pups taking part in bubble tub fun times! Somehow, Pug Pup still has snacks nearby even though she’s all sudsy?!

All the pups can fit in the tub at once!

The other new coloring page features the Cowpoke Pups from the Go West?! storyline! These pups are enjoying a nice campfire under the stars. I originally did this coloring page for an anthology a few years ago, and this is the first time it’s available on the internet! Neato!

Cowpoke Pups enjoying an evening of camping under the stars!

As always, you can find these and more coloring pages over on the Coloring Pages section! Now get to coloring! <3
