Dominion of Giants Coloring Book: Behemoths of the Fantasy World, by Eric Messinger, is an 80-page book of wonderful hand-drawn images of giants. The large fantasy drawings cover one side of each page with fun fantasy inspirational quotes and mini drawings on the back of each page. The pages of the book are thick and perforated for easy removal. The best medium to use in this book are colored pencils, as both gel pens and markers bleed through and shadow the back of the page. I found it best, if using pens or markers, to use heavy card stock in between the pages while coloring. Many of the drawings are quite intricate and have a variety of thick and thin lines. The first section of the book has a color wheel, color terminology and step-by-step directions on how to color shadows, midtones and highlights. This is followed by professionally colored samples of the pages to follow. I found this helped to get my color juices flowing. This is a wonderfully-crafted fantasy coloring book jammed pack of giants of all shapes and sizes.
