Fan Art Friday: Vader’s Mask

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.

My cat wanted to get into the action this month: I left my book open on the floor and decided to add his claw marks.  I think he was trying to add to the edginess or something.

I really like the color scheme I picked this time, and the execution was okay.  I did Vader’s mask in grey and it kinda turned out looking like a skeleton.  But then I decided I liked it, because it reminded me of the scene in ROTJ when Vader tosses the Emperor over the railing, and the Force lightening energy electrocutes him so you can see his skeleton.  Not sure that’s entirely scientifically accurate, but it sure looks cool.

You can check out Kiri’s version here and enjoy its great colors and shading.

Next month in anticipation of the Solo movie, we’ll do a Han Solo-inspired image.  Fun fact: this one is actually in the book twice!

Fan Art Friday: Shadow of Vader

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.

We’re back after a month off with this interesting picture, which I think is one of the few in the book that combines prequel and OT images.  I wasn’t particularly inspired with this one, but I like the way it came out fine. Nothing really exciting.

I knew I wanted it to be heavily red and warm tones, because of Sith lightsabers, and Tatooine, and Anakin’s podracing helmet.  I thought using green for the leaves would be too much green, so I did kind of a greenish yellow, as if the leaves were wilting and fading.  Kind of fitting for Anakin’s fall to the Dark Side.

Check out Kiri’s beautiful image and her thoughts on Anakin’s transformation here.

Next month we’ll do a portrait of Queen Amidala:
