Sherlock Adult Coloring Book

Sherlock Adult Coloring BookI Love My Sherlock Adult Coloring Book!

Fans of the BBC Sherlock Series are going to love this Sherlock Adult Coloring Book!  I’ve got mine now and I’m loving it! It’s packed with great memorable scenes from the TV series and it even gives you clues to help you solve the crimes from the shows as you color your way through the book.

If you’ve been hiding in your room watching watching Sherlock on Netflix then you might be wondering what an adult coloring book is?  Well they are hot, red hot.  They are the latest way for people to relax and unwind.  Therapists are recommending them, people are buying them.  They make an awesome gift for Sherlock fans and they are fun.  We knew what we were doing in Kindergarten and now we can color out in the open with no shame!

What’s Inside the Sherlock Coloring Book?

This adult coloring book contains over 50 drawings of scenes straight out of the BBC Sherlock Series 1,2 and 3.  We Sherlock Coloring Bookget a chance to add our own take of color onto many favorite scenes.

The scenes were drawn my Mike Collins, artist and storyboard illustrator for the Doctor Who series. In addition he has illustrated some of the Dr. Who graphic novels.

There are 9 clues hidden throughout the pages.  These clues were essential in solving the crimes in the BBC Series.

Highlights include scenes of London, scenes from Chinatown, John and Mary’s wedding, Moriarty wearing the Crown Jewels, the visit to Buckingham Palace and much more.

Some Things to Note About The Sherlock Coloring Book

Unlike other coloring books, the pages are not meant to come out of the book.  At first I was disappointed about that but then I realized this book is more like a souvenir of the Sherlock BBC Series and I would want to keep it all together.

Don’t use crayons.  Although I do use crayons often, the Sherlock Coloring book pages have a bit of a sheen and they just don’t take the color well from wax crayons. You need either gel pens or pencil crayons.  I like to use both.  The gel pens give a nice saturation of color and the pencil crayons are great for more subtle effects and for blending and shading.  My son who is an artist, prefers Copic pens which are very pricey. Almost as good are these Sakura gelly pens I used in the coloring example of the ‘Sherlocked’ phone. It was like painting with a pen!  You also have to get some metallic gel pens, I love the added effects!  As far as pencil crayons, my son uses only Prismacolor pencil crayons, which he sometimes lets me borrow. I think they are pretty awesome.
