And we’re back! This is when Mei-Mei and I will color in the same picture and compare/contrast.
Surprisingly, our mandalas are very similar. Rarely does this happen! I wanted to brighten this one up a bit because I thought too many greys and blacks could make it boring. I did incorporate some, but tried to keep it at a minimum.
Both of used green as our dominant color, though Mei-Mei actually had a reason behind it, whereas I just thought I hadn’t used green in a while. 😛
Also, I had the help of my daughter/Jedi Padawan again who picked this picture. She LOVES doing these. She thinks it’s so much fun to color with me. She had a whole theory about this picture:
“The Empire is actually trying to be good and that’s why they have blue and green, because blue and green is good guys right, Mama? So maybe they’re trying to be good in this picture and we’re making them good.”
Another fun note about this picture is that it is on the opposite side of the very first picture I ever colored in and it was the catalyst that started this entire Fan Art Friday. 🙂 Since I write the dates on every single picture that has been completed – it is 5 years ago to the month! I thought that was very fitting that this picture was chosen, in that case. The Force was with us.
