Here we are…back again after my brief hiatus last month because I was too busy reading good books to color. Hey, what can I say? Sometimes good novels take precedence over Star Wars!
What’s interesting about this month’s clone trooper is that Mei-Mei and I used VERY similar colors.
The only difference is that, per usual, Mei-Mei made the picture much more unique, with different ways to use her colors and designs as well. I also had the idea to make my blue somewhat different, by making it darker on top and in the corners, but instead…it looks like I just made a mistake when coloring. Per usual. Haha!
I love how Mei-Mei used one entire vine? Ivy? Strand? and had it fade into other colors. Where mine is all green, Mei-Mei uses yellow, orange, black and red! She even colored within some of the clone troopers helmet – super original!
I’m not sure why I went with the red right in the middle, but for some reason my mind started meandering down the path of thinking about chips within the clones and I thought the red displayed their slightly sinister side, the betrayal of when they turned on the Jedi, their former commanders.
I used the tan/orange/brown within the picture to represent Utapau, the place where Obi-Wan was turned on.
Just kidding. I used the brown because it goes well with green. But thought I might make myself sound like I had a deep thought process with this picture. The furthest I got was red for the betrayal. Blue was because they came from Jango Fett. Green because. No reason.
So not a super exciting picture, unless you’re looking at Mei-Mei’s rendition. Put down your weapons…she wins this round.
