Magical Maidens | December 2022


MAGICAL MAIDENS: A Grayscale Portrait Coloring Book of Fairies, Princesses, Mermaids & More!


Jennifer has amassed a unique and creative body of pencil portrait work over the past few years. This collection of folklore characters such as fairies, princesses and mermaids, plus steampunk and fantasy women is a compilation of her very favorite hand-drawn GRAYSCALE (shaded line-art) illustrations! If you've never tried using grayscale, now is the time!

Jennifer developed this book to provide her followers with the best quality grayscale images to achieve optimum results! “Following the grays” easily prompts artists to learn how and where to apply their colors. The gray tones act as a guide to help select the proper colors to achieve authentic looking skin tones and hair texture. By using this technique over time, learning where to place lights and darks will become second nature. There are no heavy lines to cover up, so colored pages will look realistic and polished in the end! The detailed images filled with ethereal faces, fantasy costumes, birds, butterflies, flowers and mushrooms will inspire you while encouraging you to become a better portrait artist! 

This stunning book features:



Printed on 60# paper with premium color inks - the BEST QUALITY available through Amazon


Downloadable color-toned versions of TWO pages, a downloadable Color-Organizer Chart, GREYSCALE TIPS and other goodies – for purchasers only – all available online! Use the BLUE code on a back page near the END of the book


Need inspiration? There are YouTube videos with links inside


Most pages are lightly shaded, and never too dark! A few pages offer more detailed skin tone definition and background elements


From beginner to advanced! Teenagers and moms will love it!


Colored pencils work easily. Markers and gel pens may be used with blotter pages underneath


Great for practicing skin tones! For Christmas, birthdays, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day...or "just because" for creative friends and family!


Are you a beginner? "Follow the Gray"! You'll likely better understand how shading works, improve your coloring skills and ultimately be amazed by your own accomplishments!
