Colour along: Mr and Mrs Love Bird

During January, I thought it would be pretty fun to host a live colour along with my private Facebook group, and after a quick vote, we had all decided to colour Mr and Mrs Love Bird from Doodles from The Den.

Unfortunately, during the second live broadcast, my mic had interference which I didn’t realise until after the live session was ended. My goal was to do this page in stages via live video, and then re-purpose the videos on YouTube for a real-time colour along.

Sadly, all I have is the first video which I’ve popped below. It may help those of you that want a little helping hand with colouring Mrs Love Bird!

Re-post of Facebook live colour along | Colouring Mrs Love Bird

Going live on Facebook was incredibly scary, but what I learned from the experience was priceless. Not only did I get to connect more with the colourists that enjoy my illustrations, I also learned a valuable lesson – CHECK YOUR MIC FIRST!

Also, my Facebook live stream quality was quite poor, so I think if I do a colour along in the future, I’ll pre-record it so it can be higher quality and better for putting on my blog for others to enjoy.

Technical glitches aside, the colour along submissions were absolutely gorgeous! There were no restrictions on the challenge, it was a “colour how you wish” kinda vibe, and everyone went above and beyond to create absolutely STUNNING masterpieces.

I’ve included some of the entries below, with all the colourists cited if you want to go and check out any of their other colourings.
