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.

As you can see, the artworks can be quite gruesome and bloody. So, should we be worried about the creators and followers of the page?

The founder of the page doesn’t think so. They said this about it: “I think as a community people just enjoys the shock value, the laughs, and sharing in some harmless fun. Life can be such a dark place, so it’s nice to bring some levity. And of course, seeing everyone’s reactions is always a treat.”

#9 Are They Black With White Stripes Or White With Black Stripes?

The founder of r/ColoringCorruptions is thankful that the community is still going strong. They told Bored Panda how appreciative they are: “To everyone who has participated, it’s been so much fun, thank you for sharing your weirdness with us all. I’m happy to have had a hand in making it.”

Many of our own Pandas will have fond memories of making their own masterpieces with coloring books. So, how come coloring books are so commonplace and part of most people’s childhood?

Well, they have more benefits of just being fun to work on. According to Scholastic, coloring books are incredibly important for early-age development. They teach kids to develop focus, essential motor skills and hand-to-eye coordination.

These are skills we might take for granted as an adult, but something we once had to practice as a child. The next time you pick up a pencil and write your name, think back to when you had to learn how to even hold a pencil properly.

#15 Princess Loves When The Plumber Brothers Visit

Not to mention, coloring books also encourage us to use our imagination. With just some crayons and paper, we are already making our creative mark on the world. This is another important part of building our character and identity from an early age.

The need to express ourselves is the essence of art. Whether it’s emotions or concepts, learning how to put your ideas on paper or another medium as a child will last a lifetime.

These corrupted coloring books are just one way that artists have expressed themselves. Maybe it wasn’t the original intention for the coloring templates, but who’s to say what’s correct in art?

There’s definitely some brilliant artists among the works. Turning these coloring templates into something completely different is surely a testament to their imagination and creativity. Check out the level of detail and effort that the creators have put into it.
