You may have noticed that there’s no color version of today’s paper doll set. That’s because I thought it would be fun to do a week of coloring page printable paper dolls. Sorry, I realize that phrasing doesn’t really roll of the tongue.
Of course, you can always print the paper dolls in black and white (as well as color), but I thought it would be fun to just do some plain black and white sets. When I am designing a paper doll coloring page printable, I am thinking a little differently than when I am working in color.
In this set, for example, I wanted to leave space for people to draw their own patterns on the clothing if they wished. So, for this whole week, it’s paper doll coloring pages. Today there’s a C Pose set. Wednesday there will be a B pose set and we’ll wrap up on Friday with an A pose set.
I’ll confess that I was never much into coloring when I was a kid, but I know a lot of people really enjoy it and find it super relaxing. I find inking relaxing, so I suppose I can understand the instinct.
Let’s talk inspiration. I was inspired by three different images I found on Pinterest. I try to find similar silhouettes to make up a set like this so it feels like all the pieces belong together. I was inspired by this jerkin, this vest and this outfit. You can see more men’s fantasy clothing in the Gents section of my Fantasy Clothing Pinterest board.
