I like the idea of having the original and then after that the colouring version.
An idea I'd like to suggest is that in the second version to be used for colouring, you could also put an extra line between each line of the picture, so it's easier to see where you might want to put colours. Although an even better idea might be to put in some brackets; [colour#1] [/colour#1] etc. or name each part of the picture.
for example, if it were a bird, [beak] [/beak], [wings&back] [/wings&back], [underbelly] [/underbelly] etc.
that way they know exactly where to put each colour.
EDIT - I just realized that's what you were suggesting in your post. i think.

Cyanidsaid: Lol? If you can't accept a little bit of criticism then how are you gonna get better? There's almost always some room for improvement, even for ASCII vets.
yes but my point is it's deliberately small because I know that i wouldn't be able to colour it if it were bigger, and I wanted to colour it intricately.
besides, what's wrong with me doing small pictures? If i'd done a larger one, then it'd suck because i'm simply not experienced enough. hence why i'm starting out with smaller stuff. That's why I had to have an image underneath it while i was making the picture, i'm just not very good at ASCII at the moment.
I was just browsing previous pages, and found this picture of a rose Long Hair 7 did. It has really simple but effective colouring, i'm just assuming you forgot about it because it was so long ago. Maybe you could put it in your colouring book thread. I'd be happy to convert it into an easy-colour version If you like.
well I don't know if you still want to put the rose in the colouring book, but I added easycolour in. it was surprisingly easy to do. although in your coloured version a couple of the green bits, i left as red in this one (it didn't seem to make much difference and i'm lazy)
