Fan Art Friday: Size Matters Not

Welcome back to our Star Wars coloring book club.  This month by request we have the cover image.WP_20160727_18_25_06_Pro

Honestly, I didn’t feel nearly as creative or inspired doing this one as I did with the past ones.  I just tried to make everything as accurate to The Empire Strikes Back as possible; I looked up images of R2 and Luke’s X-wing and clothes to get the color schemes right.

My basic idea was to keep the background dark, and then have Yoda be light, creating a focal point with a kind of halo effect.  I do like how the background came out, but I feel like I colored the X-wing too dark.  I also did the border in a gold color, which kind of mirrors the book cover that has gold details.

The hardest part was coloring the planet at the top (which I assume is Dagobah).  I wanted to do some land and some sea, but it was really hard to tell what connected with what!

Some close-ups:

Check out Kiri’s similar interpretation of this picture over at her blog Star Wars Anonymous.  Next month we’ll be doing the Salacious Crumb pic that’s about 2/3 of the way through the book.  Feel free to join in!

    That looks awesome!!! I really like the colors and is that Earth in the back?
    Really love Yoda’s robes too and Luke’s light saber 🙂 great job!
    Did you use pencils or markers?

    Haha we did do really similar pics except I wanted Yoda to be dark and created a focal point with that effect and everything else was lighter (not including the orange). I’m glad you didn’t feel too inspired either. Maybe it’s because there was no room for originality since everything was from the movie.
