Fan Art Friday: Sacred Spaceships

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 is actually our first picture of 2019!

This image has two components: the trapezoid shapes are Lambda-class shuttle wings, and the round shapes are TIE fighter viewports.  So it’s a mandala of Imperial spaceships.

I chose this one because it reminded me of a stained glass window, specifically a Gothic rose window, like the famous one at Notre Dame in Paris.

That’s why I used a bunch of bold primary colors, but whenever I do that in these pictures I never like it as much as when I use weirder color themes.  So I think this one turned out ok, but not my favorite.

Be sure to check out Kiri’s completely different, industrial monochromatic take on the spaceship mandala. I love the direction she took for it!
