Fan Art Friday: Ephant Mon

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.  You can check out her version here.

This one is nothing spectacular, but I kind of liked that it is simple.  Ephant Mon is a very colorless character, both literally and metaphorically.  He has grey skin (like an elephant) and a very neutral robe, so I put in some happy, spring-like colors to liven up the picture.

Ephant Mon is a very overlooked character from Return of the Jedi; he is one of Jabba’s cronies and appears in one scene in the palace.  His name is literally a corruption of Elephant Man; as a kid I got him confused with Max Rebo, because I thought he looked like an elephant, too.  In Legends stories, Ephant Mon was the head of Jabba’s security force and got his own short story as part of Tales from Jabba’s Palace, called “Old Friends: Ephant Mon’s Tale.”

I have no idea why they felt the need to include him in this coloring book, but I like it!  I had a good time coloring this one because I am watching the end of The Clone Wars before it leaves Netflix.  I had never gotten to see the Lost Episodes.  And there will be more new episodes when TCW moves to the new Disney streaming service!

        Which I will, of course, do. They take most of my money anyway. But why couldn’t I find it a few months ago??

        I only found it at the beginning of March myself. I’m almost done with the lost episodes though! Then I just have to finish the last season of Rebels haha

        Yeah I have the second half of the last season of rebels… For some reason it’s not doing it for me and I’ve had trouble motivating myself to go back. Which is sad, because I loved the first 2 seasons. Even a lot of the third.

        Weird that Netflix put it back on so secretly. So mad that I’ve missed it because I’ve been wanting to re-watch it.
