Thanksgiving Coloring Book

Thanksgiving Coloring Book

Hi Colorscapers!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends in the US!

We wanted to make a Thanksgiving coloring book that can be downloaded and given to the kids and adults whilst all the food, etc., is being prepared for the feast day.

We’ve chosen a great range of outlines. In the book, we have the Mayflower ship (at least a replica of it!). We have an outline of the pilgrim houses in Plymouth, cartoons of the Pilgrim Fathers and even some outlines of floats on the Macy’s parade.

We had some images of our own and some we generated using our AI image generator but the pdf was created in Colorscape in a few seconds and exported as a PDF.

We hope you enjoy the book and we hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

See you soon

Colorscape Team

Good morning Colorscapers!

It’s almost the weekend!

Colorscape is based in the heart of Cambridge, England and we are very lucky to live and work in this beautiful city.

The parks and colleges are an inspiration for so many professional and amateur photographers alike. A few years back just before the pandemic, we created a colouring book of some Cambridge sites and we were close to getting the book into local bookshops. That was at the start of March 2020 and obviously, a couple of weeks later, everything had changed.

We still went ahead and made print copies and we sold the book on Etsy. It is now out of print but we wanted to share the book with you all – it is completely free to Download and we hope you enjoy not just the outlines but the photos also.

We have three colouring storybooks that are going to be published in January 2024 so keep checking in for more. And we are pretty excited about the artwork and the stories we have come up with.

But in the meantime, we hope you enjoy this one!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Text to Image AI and Colorscape

Text to Image AI and Colorscape

Hey there Colorscapers – welcome to another blog post! Hope you all had a great weekend!

We wanted to speak about text-image AI and why we think this was made for Colorscape.

When we first thought about Colorscape, we wanted to make our own colouring outlines to use at home. Still, we wanted those outlines to be personal and not like the other colouring apps that produce the same sort of images that do not have any resonance or personal meaning.

This is where we think text-image AI complements what we were trying to convey by generating outlines from our photos in the first Colorscape release.

One of the issues we always had in trying to promote Colorscape was the content generation side. After all, who wants to see our holiday pictures or family get-togethers?

We view text-to-image AI as imagining the story in our minds when we read a book. But what the AI does is that it crystallises our imagination into images that we can use, save and share.

Colorscape has integrated with the Stable Diffusion API and we think that they address the concerns surrounding generative AI. They incorporate a filter where users cannot create any illicit material and the quality of the data behind the AI engine means that the output is stunning.

We admit that we had to practice with our prompts to get the best image results.

For example, take a look at the different images we can make with the subject of Halloween:

The prompts for these images from left to right were:

1.Epic Halloween Fantasy Art by John Stephans

2. Creepy halloween aesthetic, trending on unsplash, [ 4 k photorealism ], professional photography, [ overhead view of a table ], shot by jimmy nelson

3. Halloween festival with colorful fireworks, 8 k octane beautifully detailed render, post – processing, extremely hyper – detailed, intricate, epic composition, cinematic lighting, masterpiece, trending on artstation, masterpiece, stunning art by anders zorn, wonderful masterpiece by greg rutkowski, beautiful cinematic

All three images are obviously halloween based but all three images are very different and also unique.

We think that we will have to learn to utilize AI as a tool just as a few years ago, the internet was an emerging technology and no one really knew how it would grow and how it would be used to benefit us. And just like many tools, there is a potential to use them poorly and a potential to use them wisely.

Text-to-image AI is perfect for Colorscape and we think it will only enhance creativity!

Also, with Colorscape, you can use the images to create outlines or put them straight onto physical goods like T-shirts and hoodies. And so you can really bring your creativity to life!

We would love to see some of your creations – so please email them in and if they are AI-generated, then also send in the prompts. We will feature them on a future blog post.

Editing The Sagrada Familia!

Editing The Sagrada Familia!

We were lucky enough to visit Barcelona last week and one of the obvious places to visit was the Sagrada Familia.

Designed by Antonia Saudi, the Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família is yet to be finished but amongst the cranes and scaffolding, its beauty and magnificence attracts millions of tourists.

Unfortunately, due to crowds, we could not get a ticket to visit inside that particular day but we thought we would use some of our pictures of the outside to show how Colorscape can edit the outlines generated from photos.

We chose the Sagrada Familia as the subject of today’s post as we don’t think you could find a more intricate, complicated building facade anywhere in the World.  And it would be a great challenge to put the photo through Colorscape!

After generating the outline, we removed the cranes which we did with the eraser tool and then we had to draw in part of the spire with the line tool. These are are both on the editing screens as shown in the second and third images.

Once we are happy, we can start colouring in the spires!

This was our attempt to capture the Sagrada Familia in a colorscape!

We hope the brief tutorial was useful!

See you soon Colorscapers!
