My friends, this is a momentous occasion. I had help with my coloring this month!
I rarely color during the day because I find coloring at night before bed much more relaxing. But this time around, I had some spare hours on a Sunday and decided to work on this Queen Amidala picture. My daughter, who is very art inclined, saw me coloring and HAD to join in.
So here is the first time ever that I’m presenting a Fan Art Friday where TWO people worked together on it.
I wouldn’t let ARM color Amidala (other than the hair), I thought that should be as close as possible to the original, but I let her go nuts on the other parts. And you know what? It’s a super fun picture!
It’s wacky, not thought out at all, but also spontaneous and full of color!
I learned something new as well. Queen Amidala has the full red senate gown with a red robe on top (which I believe this picture was) and she also has this mega huge black cape that she wears on top of the gown and robe as well. I mean, that’s just superfluous at that point. Poor woman. Get rid of tradition if you have to wear a gown, a robe and a cape. I could only remember her with the black cape on, so this picture confused me a bit at first.
We know what that means, right??! I have to watch The Phantom Menace again. That’s the only thing that has to come out of this.
Do check out Mei-Mei’s version as well! We love comparing and contrasting our pictures. I also think hers is much more ordered and neat. 🙂
