If anyone has ANY idea what this picture is supposed to be, let me know. My husband said he thinks it’s the Emperor’s Royal Guards but I’m not sure. He could have been thinking that because of the red I used. I thought maybe it was the bottom of Slave I but then that seemed not to fit either.
I picked this picture because I want to do the first and last page of the book because that will help me feel more complete. I’m a little OCD like that.
In the end, I decided that I didn’t know what the heck it was, so I ended up challenging myself in different ways. I allowed myself to pick 3 color tones – red, green and brown – and the entire picture had to be in those colors. On top of that, I had to stick to one color in one section. So if you notice my red is actually the same colored pencil…I just drew really dark in the middle and lighter on the side.
I enjoyed this picture a lot, though I do think I have a bit of a Christmas color problem going on there. 😛 But I don’t think it’s THAT bad! I didn’t notice until later. I liked the color choices I picked and it was very soothing.
Other than that, there’s not much to say because I don’t actually know what the heck this is supposed to be. Ah, art. Always open to interpretation!
