Free Wildlife Colouring Pages
Original animal drawings for you to print and colour!
On this page I collect my original colouring pages of wildlife, from big cats to pigeons. They are all drawn from my imagination or referenced from my own photographs, and freely available to download and colour. I love creating neat designs for people to enjoy, and I really like using my photos for something! (I visit the zoo a lot, and have hundreds of photos to draw from now!).
Drawing colouring pages (or line art) is something I come back to between 'real' paintings, so I often add more. To see all my best colouring pages, visit Colouring Page Art by Flynn the Cat!
These are all my pictures, so
1. Don't re-upload them elsewhere for other people to download. Uploading the finished image is fine, though!
2. Don't sell them. Ever.
3. Feel free to colour them however you like! On the computer, or print them out, share them around, entirely up to you.
(Optional) 4. If you do share your finished pictures online, I would love to be credited, and to see.
The striped kings (and queens) of the jungle
Everyone loves tigers, right? Dramatic and bold and just a bit scary, these huge cats spend a lot of time lazing around.
In this colouring page, we have a pair of tigers, lazily enjoying the sun, with black stripes only waiting your colours to show them off properly.
Colouring: Tigers are black and orange, with white fronts, paws and snouts (though this varies by tiger and by species).
Here's one of the original tiger photos!
This is one of the tigers from my local zoo. I took this photograph, and a few others, and used them as references for the tiger colouring page.
It's a great way to practice, and as I have hundreds of photographs, I'm never going to run out of subject matter. It's also a really good way to put the blurry, boring and badly lit photographs to good use.
Small spotted cats from the Sahara
Servals are very small 'big cats', and very smart. They're lovely creatures, and can actually interbreed with domestic cats, to create the exotic Savannah breed. They come from Africa, and hunt in the long grasses.
In this colouring page, a pair of Servals rest in the grass, with two cheeky sparrows watching them from the vine border.
Colouring: Servals are tawny or sand coloured, with dark brown or black spots.
A little herd of ponies happily eating grass
I grew up near Dartmoor, which is a big moor in the Southwest of England. It's famous for it's scrubby little ponies, which wander wild on the moors.
These ponies look pretty happy - they've wandered in among some trees, and are happily grazing. Can you see the doves overhead?
These ponies are based off two old photographs of mine, which I made available as stock images on DeviantART. They're only really good as references!
The gentle flying giant under the sea!
I love manta rays (and sting rays). The manta is completely harmless, unless you are plankton, and huge!
Here, you can see a giant manta gliding under the water, its great wings poised, as it passes through a cloud of rising bubbles.
Colouring: Manta rays are black, with white patches on their shoulders.
I don't actually have a photo for this one, as it's based on a painting that I painted for my dad, years ago.
Two little pigeons, snuggling up together!
Pigeons are well known birds, and their prettier cousins, doves, are commonly associated with love and cuteness.
This is a much simpler design, focusing on just the two birds. It would be great for adding text to, to make a quick card for a loved one!
Colouring: While the pigeons in the original photo are slate grey and irridescent around the chest feathers, pigeons come in all shades of grey, as well as brown and white.
The photos of the pigeon pair courting!
I followed this pair of pigeons with my camera for about ten minutes, and captured several snapshots of their little spring romance. Can you spot the picture I used as a reference for the colouring page?
Imaginary Bird and Balloon
What colour balloon is this imaginary bird holding?
This isn't an actual bird, it's based on a sketch I drew for a sibling's birthday, sitting at a train station. It's a surreal mix of hawk and sparrow. And obviously, it has a balloon!
Because it's imaginary, I have no idea what colours its plumage might be - will you be the one to find out?
If you like surreal birds, you should definitely check out A Flock of Eyes as well!
Camels, Camels Everywhere
I started drawing camels, and couldn't stop!
Bactrian camels are the ones with two humps. They get pretty shaggy in the winter, and are very weird creatures, full of little evolutionary adaptations for surviving the desert.
Anyway, I had to draw camels for a commission and decided to practice sketching them first, so I rounded up a whole bunch of photos (including some from a flatmate that went to Egypt) and started sketching. Unfortunately, while it may be easy to start drawing camels, it's apparently very hard to stop!
Colours: Camels range from grey to brown, and are usually somewhat sandy or dirt coloured. You could just colour each one a completely different colour for fun, though!
