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