Skylanders Speed Drawing & Coloring Pages

Three years ago, I was given an amazing opportunity to work on Skylanders at Toys for Bob. Working closely with the studio head, Paul Reiche (of Star Control fame), we've crafted all of the Skylanders, and many other creatures and critters of Skylands.


Here is my speed drawing of all 32 Skylanders. Software used is Sketchbook Pro, my drawing tool of choice.






 Me and my son at the local Toys R Us on Launch day..... look at all of the character toys!

And here are some coloring pages for the kids, just right click and select save, then print out the PDF:

  2. Absolutely wonderful design on these lively characters; just the right amounts of tough and cute- would be great as-is, but they even come with a cool video game ;)

  10. @Anonymous sorry for the confusion.... it depends on the browser that you are using. To make it clearer, I've changed it to "Right click to save" and made it bold. The file links are correct, you just need to save the PDF by right clicking. Enjoy coloring with your daughter!

  21. Thank you for your great work on Skylanders. I love these coloring pages. I've been printing them out and coloring them during downtime at work using colored pencils, crayons and more. I then bring them home for my daughter for her to hang up on her wall. She loves them. I was wondering if you might do more of these to include the new team members from each element so then all six from each would be in the image. Any plans to do that?
