Hi and welcome to my newest Kickstarter Campaign - a campaign all about YOU. I am Lisa aka Lighane, traditional artist, fantasy lover and gaming enthusiast from Germany. I create cute art on a daily basis. After the big success of my first two Coloring Books it's finally time for another cute impact featuring Mythical Creatures!
The softcover Coloring Book will have 48 pages featuring 24 unique 8.27 × 11.7" black & white ready to color images of custom mythical creatures drawn and created by YOU and me. The book features high quality 120g/m² paper. Each drawing will be brand-new and unique - including cute faeries, mermaids, strong dragons & more. It will be shipped in sturdy cardboard boxes!
As promised: This book is all about YOU. 50+ tips will show you how to color professionally and make your own art pop. 12+ colored drawings will inspire YOU and guide you on your way to color mastery. And that's not all: YOU can shape this book by adding your own ideas, your very own mythical creatures drawn by me. Make YOUR very own copy one-of-a-kind by adding a Kickstarter-exclusive doodle. Or both? It's all in YOUR hands.
'But what will the pages look like?', you might wonder. Here's an example of a ready-to-color picture inside the book - my custom mermaid. Go ahead, print her out and color her. It's so much fun!
Want to grab your personal copy of my new Coloring Book? Here are the different tiers available for you.
You want a random or custom doodle? That's wonderful! To give you a first look at how your very own doodle drawn on the first page of the Coloring Book could look like I have created this video: Hit play and enjoy it!

FAQ: ALL THE ANSWERS!
Question: When will this Coloring Book be finished and shipped?
Answer: It will be done and shipped in November 2017. Yes, that's something I can promise.
Q: Why is your initial goal 2,500 € and includes only 100 artbooks?
A: This is the minimum number I have to order to be able to hand out the books at such an affordable price.
Q: What language is the Coloring Book?
A: The PDF will be available in German and English (you get both copies), the printed version is English only.
Q: And what happens once we hit a stretch goal?
A: All stretch goals will upgrade EVERY copy of my Coloring Book at NO ADDITIONAL COST for you - or add other special gifts. So you get even more for your bucks if you tell your friends about this project!
Q: I ordered a package and can now decide on a doodle. What will you draw for me?
A: This is quite easy: The book will be personalized for you, so I draw one character for you ... and pretty much anything is possible!
Q: I ordered a package and can now decide on a drawing inside the book. What will you draw for me?
A: As this artbook will be filled with cute and adorable critters, creatures and more anything mythical is possible. I will draw one character for you from the mythical world - for example unicorns, leprechauns, fairies, and so on. You want your pet dog drawn? No worries, how about us adding angelic wings and a unicorn horn? You want a selfie? Totally possible: Let's draw you as a magical elf! Only NSFW pictures and 18+ images as well as gory pictures won't fit well here. Anything else is possible. And: If you're not quite sure, just ask me!
Q: Can I watch you draw?
A: Yes, I have created several speedpainting videos you might be interested in. You can find find them on my homepage.
Q: Is 2,500 € really enough to create an artbook?
A: Sure, this covers all costs - but let me show you the math:
- Kickstarter and payment options: 10% to 12%
- Printing cost (100 books): 60%
- Creating Magical Numbered Certificates: 5%
- Tools, equipment, working time: 13% to 15%
- Chocolate and energy drinks and fairy dust: 5%
- Packaging material: 5%
Risks and challenges
Of course there are risks involved in a project like this. But I have planned everything so that problems are super-unlikely to occur. The estimated shipping date in November 2017 will be easily achieved as I already started working on the pieces for this coloring book - and I have expertise in already having created two Coloring Books and one Artbook.
So what could go wrong? A sudden illness might throw me back - you never know - but some nightshifts with energy drinks would bring me right back on track in no time (also, I have of course calculated in some days to catch up on any work).
With having already kickstarted two more books I am confident that every angle has been examined and that everything will be printed and shipped on time. I have a printing company on standby and extra options at hand that can be used. Thanks for your awesome support and your trust!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
