Ukiyo-e, Okay?

Three free printable coloring pages in the style of Japanese ukiyo-e prints.

Who’s ready to color some kimonos?

I’m very fond of ukiyo-e and sometimes watch videos of carvers and printers who keep the tradition going in modern-day Japan. It’s a very meditative process, much like coloring. I would suggest you add some gradients to these images if you want to create an authentic feeling to these prints.

In the first image I spent a little extra time removing the flat black fill of the character’s hair. I’m not sure if this was necessary, but at least you can add some texture to the hair and color the hair ornament how you like.

As usual, all of these images were created with the help of an AI image model called Stable Diffusion. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated. My goal is to create the best dang images I can using these tools.
