Our Collection of Unique Monsters to Color
Tips and Tricks for Coloring These Sheets
Experiment with Colors: Don’t limit yourself to traditional colors. Monsters can be any color you imagine – vibrant purples, electric blues, or even multicolored!
Textures and Shading: Add depth to your monster by experimenting with shading and textures. Use light and dark shades to create a 3D effect, especially around the edges and in creases.
Mixing Media: Combine different mediums like crayons, markers, and colored pencils. Markers can provide a solid base color, while colored pencils are great for shading and adding details.
Embrace Imperfections: Monsters are unique and often imperfect creatures. Don’t worry about going outside the lines or making mistakes – it adds character!
Background Magic: Don’t forget the background. A spooky or whimsical background can set the scene for your monster.
Use Highlights: Add highlights to areas like the eyes, teeth, or scales to make your monster pop. A white gel pen or a light-colored pencil can be great for this.
Get Inspired: Look at pictures of mythical creatures or other artwork for inspiration, but remember to make your monster uniquely yours.
Take Your Time: Enjoy the process and don’t rush. Spend time on small details which can make a big difference in the overall look.
Create a Story: While coloring, think of a story about your monster. What’s its name? Where does it live? This can inspire unique color choices.
Have Fun!: Most importantly, have fun with it. Let your imagination run wild, and enjoy the creative process.
