Give me some opinions- fantasy art

I am planning to publish some of my drawings as coloring books. There would be 20 drawings, on nice white paper, and a card stock cover, retail price just under $10 (Let's say $9.75)

Do you think I am wasting my money"

Here aresome samples from the Unicorn coloring book.

Some things seem to be missing.

The words erect, flaccid, throbbing and indifferent come to mind.




Keep making us proud Mrs. Danger!

While I appreciate the art, I think they may be "too detailed" for a coloring book. Especially the middle ones. There are a lot of little intricacies. Does that make sense? Love the art and the concept, but they would definately be on the expert level of the coloring field, if that makes more sense.

Where do you plan on selling these? And what's your target market? Still adults, as with the other ones?

Maybe you should finish the deck and sell them as cards.

You're forgetting it's on much larger paper. Wouldn't be that bad.

I do think having hair-covered breastage may turn off some of the moms who would think about buying this for their young'ns, though...and kind of hard to sell such a high-priced coloring book. I'd get crappier paper (sorry, most people won't spend more than three Georges on a Coloring book, I don't think.), maybe recycled or something, and just...cheapify it. Put it in Wal-Marts 'round the world and you'll make enough cash to do it however you want, next time. Cover your initial investment, you'll be fine.

Very nice! You could maybe sell the books on eBay or at renaissance fairs?

See! breakfastwithgirls has prooved that anyone can color these.

DarkestPheonix, if I wanted my artwork to be in Walmart, I would be doing teddy bear NASCAR drivers.

Pressplay, my market is renfaires, SF conventions, and other rown-up art and fantasy fan events. I would hope that SOME parents have the sense to get their kids good coloring books, with drawings that are challenging to color, but I expect most of these to be bought by middle aged people.

I really like them. This is the second time I've seen them and they make me want to color.

I think they're perfect for a coloring book medium. I'm not a huge fan of unicorns, but I'd still give it a go.

What's this got to do with Art's fantasies?

Not into the theme at all, but you did a wonderful job there.

I think they color up just fine.

I have done the scary part, and taken them to the printer, and put them on my website.

The real issue in publishing is knowing who is your target market. Will they like what you are publishing? Will they purchase what you are offering?

A terrible truth, but a truth nonetheless.

Do middle-aged people at conventions like coloring books? Would it be better just to have a pre-colored artbook? Would packaging crayons or colored pencils with the books help sell them?

It's all about marketing, and unfortunately, very little about product.
