Fan Art Friday: Artoo Awakens

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 chose a simple picture this month so I would be able to color and schedule this post ahead of time.  Also, R2-D2 is one of the few characters that appears in all Star Wars movies thus far, and I’m looking forward to seeing him again soon on the big screen.

Although The Force Awakens introduced the wonderful BB-8 as a new favorite droid, many of us were disappointed with the very small role that R2 had in that movie (only barely more than Luke himself).  Hopefully we will see more of him this time around in The Last Jedi.

So much of the advertising materials for TLJ have featured the color red prominently, so I chose red shades for the decorative details, and then just tried to color R2 as realistically as possible.  Of course, since I can never take anything too seriously, I added a little “beep boop” near his head.  R2 always seems to have something to say about any given situation.

Check out Kiri’s version of the “overweight glob of grease” here.  We’ll see you again in the new year!
