Fan Art Friday: Southwestern Rebel Mandala

So Star Wars Anonymous and I are doing a “coloring book club” with our Star Wars coloring books.  Every month we’ll do a picture and then compare them!

She started Wednesday for May the 4th.  I really liked the color blending she did!  And the color choice was great, too.  Very cool.

I cheated a little when I did mine, because I remembered she said that she started by making the Rebel crest in the center red, and then just going from there…so I did the same!  I kind of worked out a Southwestern kind of color scheme as I went; I like to work with just a few colors otherwise I get overwhelmed.

This isn’t my favorite of the pictures I’ve done, but I like how it turned out ok, especially the gradient royal blue triangles.  Kiri and I made some similar color choices in places, but it’s mostly pretty different.

I actually just started this one, so why don’t we try it for the first Friday in June?  It’s a little more involved, but I just love the image!  It’s near the front of the book.

    Sounds good! It’ll be my first person one.

    And i don’t think that’s cheating at all…starting with red only makes sense. 🙂 I was going to say I love your blue gradient as well on the triangles!

    You can also tell how much more confident you are in this due to your darker coloring. I was very light with all of mine since it was my first picture and I was nervous I would screw something up. I did screw stuff up, but when the pencil fill ins are lighter, it’s not so bad to work with it.

    You can’t tell on my photo, but our backgrounds are almost exactly alike. We both picked a tan color for the circle filling.

    LOVE IT. This is so fun!

      What great observation about the difference in darkness. When I took art in high school, I never drew the lines as dark as the teacher wanted, so maybe I’ve progressed!
