Portrait Painting

Portrait painting is quite a skill! So is being able to sit still for a portrait painting. Because you could be spending that time eating snacks, y'know?


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!

Cold? Stay Inside and Color!

It’s a new year with cold January weather! My area has recently had super-cold weather with wind chills that were dangerous. Anytime it gets event slightly cold, I want to stay inside with a warm drink and a book. Or crochet, like Fluff Pup is doing in this month’s first coloring page! TeaCup Pup and Corgi Pup are too impatient to wait for the blanket to be finished before they start to use it though.

Fluff Pup has to make the blanket bigger if any other pups decide to crawl under before it’s done!

We also sorta had snow? But not as much to build a big snowman with…which is why the other coloring pages features all the pups chipping in to build a snowman! All the pups are lending a paw, although maybe Pug Pup needs to be informed the carrot is meant to stay on the snowman face instead of being eaten?

It’s a team effort to build this snowman!

I roughed out both of these coloring page ideas in a tiny sketchbook I’ve started to leave in my bag when I go out, in case I end up with idle time and get a good drawing idea. I snapped a picture of the page and ported over the sketches to help with laying out the illustrations. You can see this happening in the first few seconds of this month’s Time Lapse as I move around chunks of sketch references while drawing! Be sure to grab these and all sorts of other coloring pages to fill your time while you stay safe and warm!

Wintery Holiday Coloring!

Time for another month’s edition of coloring pages! It’s cold and I don’t have enough big sweaters! Or maybe I do but I just still feel cold. Corgi Pup has the same feelings as me, which is why drawing her in so many layers made perfect sense! This coloring page is based on one of my favorite comics that I’ve drawn.

Corgi Pup feels so cozy when she has on so many layers in winter!

The Space Pups recent appearance in the Mech Mishap storyline made me think about how they would celebrate Christmas and decorating for it. Their planet doesn’t really have pine trees though…so maybe they’d decorate a small rocket ship instead? Since they have jet packs, they don’t have any trouble decorating up to the top or adding a space-themed topper!

The Space Pups take such care in decorating their Christmas Rocket!

For this month’s timelapse, here’s Corgi Pup getting all layered up! As always, you can find these and other stacks of coloring pages to keep you occupied in cozy sweaters over in the Coloring Pages section.
