Last week, Lorri asked me if I had any archangel coloring pages that she could use for a homeschool party. I was planning on making some, so I bumped up my production schedule to get her a St. Michael to use. The Professor chose this picture as the most manly one we could find (with the exception of the girly hair~ his words). Well, this weekend, I worked on Gabriel and Raphael too and let me tell you, I think I'm going cross-eyed! Those pages were probably the hardest ones I've done yet. Lots of little lines. I tried to give myself a bit of a reprieve by not doing full bodies. And for an example of what happens when I leave my comfort zone, take a look at Raphael. Not exactly like the original. I thought St. Raphael was usually seen with a fish, not a child and The Professor said something about a staff which my brain translated as "spear" until well into the black lining process when The Professor decided to inform me that it is usually a walking staff. Oh well. Not starting over! No way. No how.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy them. The Professor has already claimed St. Michael. I am betting Sunshine and Shortcake both choose Gabriel and that leaves Raphael to endure BigBoy's colorful scribbling. Serves him right.
