    I found it for sale on Forbidden Planet, 5p cheaper than on Amazon (when you factor in the £1 delivery cost) :)

    Cool! Thanks :)

    Weird that they can get hold of them but Amazon can't :confused:

    The service from Amazon UK has went right downhill, they no longer care about anything but their bottom line. The supposed Amazon Logistics courier service are almost as bad as UPS, and that's saying something. I try to avoid using Amazon at all anymore, as I got fed up of complaining every time I ordered from them.

    Book depository is good. I'll be buying it from them. :)

    That's quite cool. Looks great. :)

    Must admit that when I heard coloring book so did I think - How hard can it be? Kinda just stay within the lines and you'll be alright.
    But now when I see Foxy's finished result I realize how extremely bad that would look if I had done it instead. lol
    No chance that I would've been able to get the different shades of colors and stuff look so good.

    Everyone can do this. Everyone can draw! It is not a competition art is a way people can release and enjoy themselves.

    To make you feel better I nearly studied art at college! Thank you for the compliment @sk73

    Did my best trying to recreate bad 90s fashion in this drawing. Did I succeed?
     
    GwenRaiden: Yes!
    Last Watcher: Definitely! :)

    What pens are you using? It looks great! (I'm a bit disappointed, now that I got mine, that it bleeds through the paper. Sure there's nothing but a quote on the back, but I've gotten spoiled with better paper in the books I buy.)

    I use promarkers :) I have the same problem but I keep sheets of blank paper underneath the paper, so it doesn't bleed through too much. I don't mind the quotes so much, but I don't want the lineart to be smudged and stuff ;)

    Honestly the paper quality is much better than I had originally expected! I'm used to expecting nothing!!

    Ok, I'm beside myself now. I've ordered it from Forbidden Planet and cancelled the Amazon order but I still have no dispatch information or anything. I feel like my destiny is to not have this book.....! :(

    Into every generation, there is a chosen one. One girl in all the world. She alone will wield the crayons and felt pens to stand against Amazon, Forbidden Planet, and the forces of undelivered pre-orders.

    Would it work better with colouring pencils? They shouldn't bleed through.
     
    Taake: Yes, but I don't like those

    Those look great Foxy! I've been using colored pencils, and I'm not really skilled at them. lol. But I copied my pages for practice, so I don't ruin my book. lol

    I wanted this one to be simplistic, so their love seems more...tender. I was really looking forward to this one, so I hope I did it justice!

    These are great but they're making me want to buy more promarkers!
