115 Times That Kids Coloring Books Were Corrupted By Adults

115 Times That Kids Coloring Books Were Corrupted By Adults

Coloring books are a fun way to pass the time. You don’t need impressive artistic skills to turn a coloring template into your own work. Just pick up a book or print a page with designs, grab your crayons and let your inner artist out.

This is exactly what users on the r/ColoringCorruptions subreddit have done. The only difference is that their inner vision involves turning children’s coloring templates into slightly more adult ones. These artists have taken cartoon images and corrupted them into malevolent, yet hilarious versions instead.

You can see the cutesy images ready for coloring are contrasted by the dark end-result shared by the artists. Imagine Winnie The Pooh on drugs and/or in bondage gear, and you already get an idea of what’s going on. (Or maybe you don’t want that image in your head.)

Although some are pretty gnarly, you have to admire the artists’ creative skill at adapting the templates. Here is Bored Panda’s latest picks for the best corrupted coloring books. You can check out our other collections of them here, here and here. Look away if you don’t want to ruin your childhood!

#1 Happy (Early) Halloween!

The r/ColoringCorruptions subreddit currently has 176K followers of the twisted artworks. I wanted to find out how it got started and who the diabolical mastermind behind the idea was.

The founder of r/ColoringCorruptions told Bored Panda the story behind the page. “One day, I was hanging out with my cousin and glancing through a coloring book she had while we chatted,” they told us. “I started chuckling because some of the characters were just so crazy looking. The next natural step was to bring the psychotic energy that I saw in their eyes to life!” 

#2 "Letters Of The Day"

Creating art is one thing, but if no-one else sees it, did you really make it? Rather than letting their artworks become lost to time, the founder of r/ColoringCorruptions knew they had to share their art with others. They asked their nearest and dearest for opinions on the first pieces of corrupted artwork. 

The founder of the page said, “My family and friends thought the few I’d made were darkly humorous (my family is great if you couldn’t tell), so I just kept going.”

And with this encouragement, they felt they had to share the artworks even more. “As a regular Reddit user, I realized there were probably a lot of others out there who would get a kick out of it. So, I made our website and started the subreddit,” they explained.

The subreddit community continues to grow with more twisted takes on coloring pages. I wondered what spurs the creators of the content to make these artworks. The founder of r/ColoringCorruptions gave me their opinion on it.

“Coloring is already sort of therapeutic and enjoyable. When you throw in some sick humor, it’s even better,” they said.

Coloring is definitely gentle and relaxing, even if these corrupted versions evoke anything but those emotions.
