First Fan Art Friday of 2019! Always exciting. 🙂 I can’t believe we’re still doing this 3 years later; it’s really quite amazing.
What’s also amazing is this is a perfect example of how two people can completely interpret art differently. While I saw a dark, industrial, oppressive picture, Mei-Mei created something with an incredible splash of color, based on the Notre Dame gothic rose stained glass window.
I have to say, hers is WAY more fun and cooler than mine. Put your guns down, she wins this round.
I went with my gut here and imagined someone opening up a TIE Advanced and going to work tinkering on it. Since I knew I was going to primarily stick with industrial greys, blacks, silvers, and some brown, I tried to do some designs within the Advanced but…I think it just ended up looking dumb, LOL! I wanted to shake it up a bit but it ended up looking amateur.
I actually thought I did the wrong picture all the way up until today when I saw Mei-Mei’s. I couldn’t find her email with the picture anywhere and so I took a guess and colored this one based on memory. Well, I’m happy it was the right one!
Next month, we’ll be looking at a lightsaber mandala with a throwback to the Prequel Trilogy (Mei-Mei, it’s the picture next to the Yoda/cover page that we did in 2016).
