Fan Art Friday: Han Solo

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.

This image has always cracked me up because it looks like Han has flowers instead of legs.

I kept the main colors in blues and reds to kind of match Han’s clothing.  The red bands kind of reminded me of the Corellian Bloodstripes on his pants.  According to Legends/EU, there are two kinds of Bloodstripes, and Han won both.

One story was that he won one set for rescuing his Wookie pal Chewbacca from Imperial slavery.  I don’t think anything official has been said in the new canon for how he got the Bloodstripes, but I’m interested to see if they will address this at all in the upcoming Young Han Solo movie.

Also be sure to check out Kiri’s interesting study of Han’s color energies here!

Next month we’ll be doing a Boba Fett mandala:

Fan Art Friday: Happy 4th of July!

Another sketch from my high school notebook.  I don’t know why these Chinese and Japanese characters from Cardcaptor Sakura are celebrating the US Independence Day, but hey, I gave them cute costumes.  Li Syaoran is Uncle Sam, Sakura is the Statue of Liberty, and Meiling is doing acrobatics in a festive parade-watching outfit.

I hope you all here in the US have a great holiday weekend (if you’re really lucky this year it’s four days :)).  Even if our country’s not perfect, we have a lot to be proud of and thankful for.  We can celebrate and look forward to an even better future together.

Fan Art Friday: Anakin’s Passion

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 had so much more fun with this one than I did with the last.

I wouldn’t say this is my favorite or anything, but I like some of the stuff I did.  I started by doing the green circles in varying shades of green, and I love the way it came out!  Then I did the flame-looking designs in some warm shades.

I wanted to incorporate some more blue, like from Anakin’s lightsaber, so I did the bottom designs in varying blue shades.  But I think this area came out reminding me of Flounder from The Little Mermaid haha.

As a side note, am I missing it, or does Anakin not have his Padawan braid in this image?  I guess it could be swinging behind his head or something.

I’m glad I picked this image, because although Anakin from Episode II is one of the most lackluster characters of the whole saga, I think this image really shows his personality and characteristics well.

Check out Kiri’s great version here to see her “transitional” Anakin!

Fan Art Friday: Sakura calls on JUMP

Sakura jump2

 

Another Cardcaptor Sakura sketch.  Here she has her staff from the second story arc, with the Sakura cards, and she has just used the JUMP card (maybe still in her hand).  The costume is my design.  She has cool boots, and some kind of tulle coming out from an underskirt.

I really like her hair in this one!  And the cape.  I was obviously trying to indicate some movement during her jump.

This is dated 2003 at the bottom.  This is when I was in high school, almost 15 years ago!
