Fan Art Friday: May the Force Be With You

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.

I hope you all had a good Star Wars Day yesterday! ¬†I wore R2-D2 socks at work ūüôā

For this pattern, I was going to do my normal three- or four-color palette, but I got bored partway through and kept adding more colors. ¬†I was originally going to do all the X-wings in blue, but after I did one, I changed my mind. ¬†I remembered that many of the Rebels’ and Resistance’s fighter squads are named after colors, so I went with a rainbow theme to showcase all the different squads that helped take down the Death Stars (and Starkiller Base).

Some of the well-known squadrons include:

  • Blue Squadron (present at the Battle of Scarif)
  • Black Squadron (Poe Dameron’s group present at Starkiller Base)
  • Red Squadron (Luke Skywalker’s group present at the first Death Star)
  • Gold Squadron (actually a Y-wing group, but also present at the Battle of Scarif and the first Death Star)

I’m sure there are more in Legends, also!

I also started doing the swirly parts as gold and green, but got bored partway through and switched to blue and green. ¬†Hence, this month’s picture is very colorful! ¬†Kiri’s is also very colorful; check hers out here!

You can also see a red pencil mark at the bottom of the page; that’s from when I was coloring the picture on the opposite page! ¬†Oops. ¬†Hilariously, I accidentally made a mark on the other page while I was coloring this one…

For next month, I used Kiri’s trick of opening the book to a random page. ¬†But this one looks pretty interesting:

A Geeky Valentine’s Day

B and I started off the day by making some waffles with my new Death Star waffle maker that he bought me for me birthday last month.  They came out really well!  You can get your own waffle maker from ThinkGeek.

I splurged and got real maple syrup for the occasion–the good stuff is easy to find here in Ohio, especially starting around this time of year.

After dinner we went to see Deadpool, which was just as hilarious and irreverent as we expected. ¬†I was really pleased with it, and I’m glad it did so well at the box office, too. ¬†I think it’s a win for the fans.

I also bought him some TMNT candy–Leo is his favorite.
