Ciruelo on The Official Eragon Coloring Book

The Official Eragon Coloring BookWe are thrilled to present this interview with fantasy artist extraordinaire Ciruelo about the Inheritance Cycle and the creation process of The Official Eragon Coloring Book! Set to release May 2nd, 2017, it features over forty original drawings by Ciruelo. Christopher and the artist closely collaborated to bring Alagaësia and its residents to life in the pages of this unique coloring book.

Based in Sitges, Spain, Ciruelo has illustrated works for the likes of George Lucas, Wizards of the Coast, Ballantine, Tor, and many others. He also contributed two drawings to the Collectors Edition of Eragon! Check out the Q&A below and don’t forget to preorder your own copy of The Official Eragon Coloring Book!

What was your reaction when you found out that you would be creating the artwork for The Official Eragon Coloring Book?

I was very excited since I really love the whole Eragon universe. The long
time friendship with Christopher gave us the opportunity to have discussed a lot about dragons and fantasy, and I certainly enjoy creating art related to his inspired writings. I have depicted Saphira in many occasions and have already created a good relationship with her. Also, I knew that the exposure of such a book was going to be huge due to the success of Christopher’s saga, and that’s always tempting.

Of the drawings you did for the coloring book, which one is your personal favorite?

I think I like Saphira and Eragon Swimming the best. It’s a relaxing moment in the story and I like the scene I depicted because they are just hitting the lake surface and that makes the drawing very dynamic. Or perhaps it’s because I already imagined the whole picture in vibrant colors.

Announcing the Official Eragon Coloring Book!

Kvetha Fricaya. Greetings Friends!

Exciting news! I’m delighted to announce the upcoming publication of The Official Eragon Coloring Book! It’s a project I’ve been working on in secret for the past six months (in addition to polishing up the second draft of my science fiction novel).

The Official Eragon Coloring BookThe coloring book is illustrated by Ciruelo, a friend and one of my favorite dragon artists. He’s done an amazing job with Saphira, Thorn, Fírnen, and all the other dragons of the Inheritance Cycle! I love how he’s brought Alagaësia to life through his drawings of scenes, characters, and locations from the entire series. After so many years spent thinking about the world and the story, it’s really gratifying to share these images with you. [Read more…]
