Fan Art Friday: Salacious Crumb

Welcome back to our monthly Star Wars Coloring Book Club!  This month Star Wars Anonymous and I are coloring our favorite Hutt jester, Salacious B. Crumb.  (What does the B stand for?? Oh well, it’s probably not canon anymore anyway.)

I had a lot more fun with this one, though I’m not entirely happy with the end result.  I started by coloring the poppies red with yellow centers, then the leaves green.  I thought purple would go well, so I added some of that, too.

I almost left the area behind the character white, but that looked incomplete, so I did the same green as the leaves, but that blended too much with the yellow background, so I added some grey to it.  Still not crazy about how it looks, but I like everything else so whatever.

The scrollwork looks more orange than the poppies, but I swear it’s the same color (a mix of “red” and “red orange”).

Here’s the progression as I colored:

Check out Star Wars Anon’s version here to enjoy her excellent choice of color combination.

For next month, I randomly selected Wicket W. Warrick (the W stands for Wystri).

    I actually really like the green leaves and the yellow background! I think it looks nice. I’m also reminded of the United States with the red and blue ribbon surrounding the picture. I actually like the way mine came out which goes to show that maybe I shouldn’t take myself so seriously when I color…I put almost no thought in mine and it’s actually quite messy! But I think the colors are really fun and cool.

      Yeah, I think we’re learning that this is more fun when we don’t take it as seriously!

    Also, I’ve really been trying to color darker with my pencils but I’ve come to the conclusion that you must just have a different brand/kind.

      Haha, I was trying to color really dark this time. I just have the Crayola 24-color set or something
