Since I was a child, I’ve been used to seeing things that are only made up by people’s wildest dreams. The mythical creatures we see in our minds can be dreamy or scary, big or small, weird, or normal. It all comes down to how we playfully picture them in our minds.
Fantasy themes are very popular for adults to color. These adult coloring books take the person who works on them to a world of magic. Check out our list of the best adult coloring books for fantasy coloring to see which ones we think are the best for you to use.
Before we go to the first one, we’d like to show you our very own fantasy coloring book that we made ourselves.
Kawaii Fantasy Girls: An Adult Coloring Book
It shows strong women made with kawaii art. From queens, mermaids, witches, vampires, fairies, and many more, they are shown to be powerful and mythical, but they also show off their cute, playful, and fun side. It has a mix of simple and complex drawings that your heart will love to color.
On the front page, you can expect to see full-page illustrations only. If you’re into art markers, the back page is black to help soak up any ink that might leak through. As a general rule, especially when using alcohol markers, use extra sheets of paper under your work to protect it. The book has two pictures in it. There are two copies of each picture in the book so that you can color your favorite character again.
It is 8 1/2 by 0.23 inches by 11 inches.

With copies of each drawing, you will be able to redo your work if you think you did something wrong. Share it with a friend or family member to color together. Or, give someone else a piece that looks like yours while you keep one for yourself.
You should be extra careful if you need to separate your work from the pages. If you don’t handle the paper right, it could tear.

Mythomorphia: An Extreme Coloring and Search Challenge by Kerby Rosanes
Kerby Rosanes, a professional illustrator, is the man behind this very detailed adult coloring book that he made with black fineliner pens. This is part of a series called Fantomorphia, Animorphia, Geomorphia, Imagimorphia, and more.
The book Mythomorphia: An Extreme Coloring and Search Challenge has more than dragons, unicorns, and mermaids in it. It also has a lot of other things. It raises the level of these mythical creatures, and they are joined by merlions, goblins, yetis, Hydra, Pegasus, Medusa, and many other mythical creatures. Enjoy 53 pictures of amazing work that has a lot of small things that are well-drawn in beautiful landscapes with a lot of things in them. There are hidden objects that you can find as you color along with the parts of the picture. It may take a long time to finish all the pages, so be patient as you color.
If you take the pages out of the book, they won’t stay together. Another thing to keep in mind is that some illustrations spread out over two pages. It also prints on both sides of the paper. This is a great way to keep your work of art safe.
If you use dry media, like colored pencils, this book is the best one for you. Gel pens are also very good. You don’t want to use alcohol markers on the back of the paper, because this will make the back pages look bad. Water-based markers should be used on small parts of the page first to see if the book’s coloring page can hold them.
There are a lot of things in this book that may be too much for people who don’t know much about it. Google #mythomorphia to see how other artists have colored their work.

Disney Dreams Collection: Thomas Kinkade Studios Coloring Book
Next on our list is from the land of fairy tales, so we’ll talk about that next. In his work as a professional painter, Thomas Kinkade shows Disney princesses and other characters set in beautiful places. This book lets anyone look at and color the same artwork that he did.
The Disney Dreams Collection: Thomas Kinkade Studios Coloring Book has 63 beautiful designs that show your favorite Disney characters and princesses in their own unique settings. Mickey and Minnie, Snow White, Cinderella, Pooh and Friends, and a lot more are waiting for you to color them in this game.
This book is different because it has a colored illustration on top of its black and white line art. This lets the person see how a drawing might look. So, of course, the artist still has a say in what colors they use. But having a full-color guide is a good idea.
They aren’t good for alcohol markers because of the way this book is set up. Drawings are printed on both sides of the page, and markers may get on the back of the page if you use them. It will be good to use other things like colored pencils, glue, or glitter gel pens to make the project.
You can also give the Disney Dreams Collection as a gift to anyone, because who doesn’t love Disney, right?
