Beautiful, crazy sketches with hidden objects. I will post updates of the sketches, as I go along.

Edit: Feb, 25th: I’ve found all the little creatures, worlds, objects and things and have long since started meticulously coloring. That will be called my second reading. All the coloring.

I love the art in this book. I had been looking at it for quite a while. It is very finely detailed and I think takes a meticulous mind to color it. I made up my mind that my husband would love it, so I got us both a copy and when we started coloring even the meticulous coloring was relaxing.

Wow! I would HIGHLY recommend this book. I just finished coloring my first page from it and really love it. I'm sure you've see many colored pics from this book on FB. Some colorists have amazing blending and shading skills. The results are gorgeous! I like to stick with markers, and am pretty happy that way. The paper in this book is very thick and I didn't have any marker bleed-thru at all. The pictures are of animals but with an array of wild, crazy, goofy characters making up their bodies. I ...more

So, I've finally got my hands on it thanx to my older sister who got it for me as a present!

My first colouring will be for the: Colours of the seasons - September 2016 challenge!
Since it's an Autumn & Winter season challenge and one is just over while the other began, I'm gonna go for the transition between the two, so Autumn/Winter it is!

These lovelies were chosen for it:

And just like it's with my Enchanted Forest review, this one will also get bumped whenever I'll be done with a new piece :)

If you like a colouring challenge then this book is worth getting your pencils out for.

A really nice colouring book overall, it has some beautiful artwork to colour the only slight issue I had is that I'm not one for the "draw your own" pages where you continue drawing a pattern or element on the page which took it down a star for me but it has plenty of just colouring pages to keep me interested and make it worth the purchase.

I used Staedtler finer liners and I haven't found them to bleed through the paper, though I don't press too hard with them. However, when I do press down wi

Although not a reading book this has been a great book to colour in with my 4 & 7 yr olds we use gel pens which are neon against the bold print and have found it has helped with their motor skills holding pens and handwriting for the elder one. Me, I enjoyed trying to find the little figures with them and making up stories about what's was happening in the picture and what the animal might symbolise. I did wait for this for a long time but it really is fun to see the end pictures. It's not total ...more

I have yet to finish colouring everything in here, but I have "read" it. I found all the hidden objects, made colour schemes and even purchased a copy for someone else because I love this book so much. I wouldn't recommend a colouring book without thoroughly enjoying it myself first. That's just how I am with these types of things. ...more
Ik wilde deze eerst niet meetellen, maar toen bedacht ik me dat ik ook een 2-tal andere boeken zoals deze ook heb gelezen. Het is een kleurboek, maar ik zie het meer als een artbook. Ik ga toch niet kleuren, vind ik zonde om te doen. Kerby Rosanes art is gewoon prachtig, en dit is de enige manier om zijn art te krijgen, in een kleurboek.

Wow the pictures are brilliant really takes some thinking to colour, an enjoyable colouring book

No lo he terminado en realidad; resultó ser mucho mas tardado de lo que esperaba.

Por lo mismo, es muy entretenido. Los dibujos son pequeños, lo que lo hace muy fácil de colorear, pero son una cantidad tal de pequeños personajes y objetos que cada ilustración es un mini proyecto que requiere su inversión de tiempo. El resultado final puede ser una maravilla.

Amo que este tipo de libros terminan siendo únicos para cada quién.

Los únicos detalles que puedo mencionar es que me gustaría que las ilustra

Да наречете „Аниморфия” книжка за оцветяване би било страшно пренебрежително. Още щом разгърнете изданието на „Миранда” ви става пределно ясно, че създаденото от художника Кърби Розанес е много повече от това. Определят „Аниморфия” като „творческо предизвикателство за оцветяване, рисуване и търсене”, но дори това не покрива напълно същността на книгата. „Аниморфия” е визуално пиршество, триумф на въображението и графичното умение.

The images and spots to add ones own images are all amazing! I love this book, I immediately flipped through it once I got it. I got it as a free giveaway here on good reads and I can see myself looking for the other books by this artist after I finish this one. Though that might be a while due to all the intricate variety of detail each image holds or offers to be placed.

BREAK THE SPINE! It’s an amazing coloring book but the details on some pages are deep in the middle so open the page you want to color and open it backwards until the threading is exposed and it’ll be easier to color. Makes it easier to take it out and frame your favs!

This review is taken from my blog where I review adult colouring books from a mental health perspective. You can find pictures from inside the book here - https://colouringinthemidstofmadness....
This book is the most unusual and quirky book I’ve seen and while it’s not to everyone’s taste, it’s one that grows on most people. I found it really overwhelming when it arrived because it was just so different and such a mixture between realistic animals and quirky, cartoon aliens and other creatures a

Beautiful colouring book. I love the intricate and bold images of the animals intertwined with little cartoon characters. The fact it is a challenge just adds to the fun.

Kerby Rosanes to ilustrator, którego poczynania obserwuję od wybuchu mody na kolorowanki dla dorosłych. Podziwiam jego szczegółowe, dopracowane i niezwykle pracochłonne prace, które stały się moją inspiracją i bodźcem do tworzenia własnych doodli. Niezwykle zachwyciła mnie więc wiadomość, że w Polsce pojawi się Animorphia jego autorstwa, jedna z najpiękniejszych kolorowanek, jakie kiedykolwiek widziałam.

Co jest tak niezwykłego w Animorphii? Przede wszystkim cudowna kreska Kerby'ego i jego talent
De platen zijn erg mooi gedetailleerd. Wat ik zelf jammer vind is dat veel platen verdeeld zijn over 2 bladzijden. En dan is kleuren in de randen altijd lastig. Lees de hele review op onze website

The designs are beautiful with all their details. I personaly find it a pity that the designs are separated into two pages. It makes it more difficult to colour the edges. You can read the total review on our website

Review taken from my blog. See there for more and a flip through video -

I’m absolutely sure you have seen Animorphia at least a few times now but hey, can’t have too much of a good thing now can you. Animorphia is an amazing book filled with tons of fun details, animals morphing into all kinds of strange things and creatures.
The paper is good quality, it can take a tiny bit of water if you want but use cautiously, don’t flood the page. The images are on b

My absolutely favourite colouring book. I have the Dutch edition. Great illustrations, full of fantasy. Unique. One of a kind. The paper quality of this edition is one of the best paper qualities I have seen in colouring books, not to say the best. When I first saw it I didn't buy it because I thought it was too complicated and difficult to colour, until my dear husband bought it to me as a gift and I fell in love. You can use your fantasy with the little critters but try to keep it "down to ear ...more

I just ordered this from Amazon. I love to color. It's very relaxing while at the same time stimulates the brain. I also use some of the pages as gifts and to decorate.

Be aware though that most of the pictures go across both pages which causes anything in the middle fold to be hard to color. Like the body of the butterfly, the face of the ram & peacock and some of the smaller detailed animals.
