Fan Art Friday: Lightsaber battle

Welcome back to our Star Wars coloring book club, where Kiri at Star Wars Anonymous and I color the same image every month to compare and contrast.

Not gonna lie, this is probably my least favorite picture I’ve done.  I don’t really hate it, it’s just totally blahhhh.  I hope Kiri’s turned out better. (Spoiler alert: it totally did!  Check out her awesome Mustafar-themed picture here!)

The background design reminded me of a circle of  Imperial Royal Guards with their red hoods, observing the battle, so I colored it all in varying reds, which ended up being too much red together.  Also, I hadn’t looked at the lightsaber hilts yet: the left blue one is Obi-Wan’s, and the right red one is Vader’s, recreating their showdown on the Death Star.  But now the red lightsaber doesn’t stand out at all.  I tried to add some shadowing to help, but, meh.

For the rest, I tried to focus on colors of other lightsabers, so we have some Jedi green, blue, and of course purple for the one and only Mace Windu.  I considered doing some magenta for Mara Jade or silver for Corran Horn, but that seemed too difficult.

Here’s my pick for next month:

    Ah hahahaha that is so funny. I love seeing how we interpret it differently. I LOVED THIS ONE. I used a lot of reds and oranges as well…but the reasoning being the lightsaber on the right is Anakin’s and the one on the left is Obi-Wan. Therefore it would be more a clashing of friends at Mustafar.

    But either way – we used similar colors and while I really enjoyed using the reds and oranges because I don’t get to use them enough, it seems like you weren’t a fan. I did also think of the Imperial Royal Guards with the background.

    I like that you chose other colors for lightsabers on the border. Nice touch.

    I loved this one and I like what I did with mine. Excited for next months!

      Yeah, I think you did a way better job executing the reddish “warm” color scheme. I’m so glad yours came out better haha. The Mustafar theme is so cool!
