Fan Art Friday: Boba Fett Mandala

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.

For this picture, I simply started with the idea of Boba Fett’s armor colors, mainly green with some warmer tones as accents.  I used three different shades of green for the helmet outline tessellations and the outside leaves.  I used red for what looks like the outline of Fett’s ship, the Slave I.  Last, I added some golden details to the edges of the leaves.

For not having much of a plan except “green” going in, I really like how this one came out.  I’ve always liked the idea of Mandalorian armor, how it expresses tradition as well as utility.  There’s been so much cool stuff written in Legends about Mandalorians, and Boba Fett specifically.  I couldn’t find any information on where the color scheme for Boba’s armor comes from, as it is different from both his father Jango’s and his father’s mentor Jaster Mereel’s.  Any know/have a guess?

Speaking of Jango, check out Kiri’s mash-up mandala of Jango and Boba Fett here!

    I LOVE YOURS. It’s WAY better than mine. I wanted to do a Boba and Jango combo and it didn’t come out well at all. I love your color combinations and the way Boba really stands out.

    Also, duh, that probably is Slave I. I couldn’t figure out what that was at all so I ended up trying to make it reminisce cloud city with grey platforms and the sunset. Hahaha, but I’m sure it’s Slave I now that you mention it.

    Next month – super battle droid surrounded by roses. It’s in the beginning of the book and on the left page, while Yoda is on the right.

      I’m not 100% it’s Slave I, I was confused by it until I saw the wing thingies out to the sides, so maybe it’s like a back view? I dunno. That was the only thing I could make of it. It just looked like a weird egg at first.

      I’m excited for next month’s because I always thought that pic was a weird combo haha
