Outlander coloring pages: The Outlander Un-Official coloring book 2015 Holiday Edition

Dear Outlander fellow fans, 

Regarding the Outlander Coloring book you probably are in some of this categories:

a) The  Outlander official coloring book prominently features in your letter to Santa
b) You started coloring it (did you have problems with Frank's car?, mine looks terrible)
c) You finished coloring it (for real? I am not nearly there)
d) What is the The  Outlander official coloring book?
e) Other (In case I forgot an obvious or totally improbable option)

There is no correct answer, because I have a present for all of you. I learned some new tricks and converted the beautiful images that "Starz" has shared with us (as a Canadian anchor put it: Outlander is on something called Starz). It is a shame the the coloring book has no right to use the  TV series material. Not that I have any, but I hope I am being fair by giving Starz its credit and stating this is just fan art.

I fully disclose here that I am not a professional and that someone else might do a much better job. At least I can say that the idea was entirely mine and the results are good enough to make me want to share them. Note: click once on the color image to enlarge. For the coloring pages you will find a download link at the end of the post.



What do you think? This is Diana Gabaldon. Author of the Outlander series as the character she plays in Starz Outlander TV series episode "The Gathering" as Iona MacTavish, a wealthy merchant's wife.


Bonus: 
If you have KIDS you might have noticed that your coloring book sparks the little ones enthusiasm to annoying degrees and you end up producing some form of coloring book for them. Well, this pages can be printed (and reprinted, no need for tantrums after a mistake) and you are free to color. Maybe you still will have to get them some crayons if you don't want to share the "good" coloring pencils.


1. Bouton: Claire's Dog in Paris (Outlander season 2) let's start with something easy to sharpen your pencils.





2. The wedding: Jamie and Claire entering the Kirk.  (Outlander season 1)




3. The wedding night: Jamie and Claire  (Outlander season 1)




4. Claire and Jenny at Lallybroch: I love this domestic scene! (Outlander season 1)




5. Claire and Murtagh: looking for Jamie (Who doesn't like to color horses?) (Outlander season 1)



6. Frank Randall and Black Jack Randall: For his fans, I know there is a cave full of them according to one insider.  They are a fun loving bunch not easily shocked. Who else would be a fan of Black Jack. (Outlander season 1).




6.  Jamie and Claire at a party in France (Outlander Season 2): This and the next are my first attempt at converting the images: The lines are harder. 





7.  Claire awaiting in a room. (Outlander Season 2). I like the composition, although Claire looks about to start crying.




8. Jamie&Murtagh: The parisian can-can (Outlander Season 2)



9. Claire's princess dress. Again the shadows make my task difficult.
