Big Kids Coloring Book updated

I downloaded 3 pictures from the HP site. Here is one. I used mostly layer styles on this. I painted the skin, and a couple other things that I couldn't find the right color I wanted.
Hope you like it.
Before:

After:


It took me about 2 hours to do. The original file was 2444x3154.
The files also came as a PDF file. But it will load into PSE 10 just fine. I saved it out as a PSD & Jpeg file.

Added one more today. This one took about 6 hours to do.

Mike C, they look great, nice work.
I especially like the colors and luminosity on the second one.

Thank You frank, I'm glad you like it. I find the "Layer Styles" works great on projects like this. I not much of a painter, so by using the layer styles you can get the illusion of depth with the different shadowing. Plus it's just fun to work on.

Really did a great job. It's always fun playing around with what Elements has to offer.

Thank You Christell for you feedback. These are really fun to do. I just get the magic wand tool, select an area, and fill with a layer style I like. The skin tones I have a chart I use. But other than that it's all pretty much the layer styles. I downloaded some more this morning. They are all Disney characters. Mickey, Donald, Minnie, Pluto, and Fiona the Warrior from Shrek. I'm going to do these for my grand-daughter.
