Fan Art Friday! Yoda’s Takes Us On

I wish there was a way to back upload my posts so it looks like I posted this Friday.  First of all, sorry Mei-Mei for needing a few extra days on this!  The picture was done but then I didn’t have time to get around to the post.

So here I am – actually posting on a Monday so it really should be Fan Art Monday…but it doesn’t sound as good.

I love Mei-Mei’s rendition of this picture!  Her coloring for Yoda is spot on and I love that she did an outline for the Jedi Order symbol.  I also love that she did the blue border as a faded effect.  It’s hard for me to get those right but she really nailed it.

I don’t mind my picture – but I’m very neutral on it.  I don’t love it and I don’t hate it.  I was unhappy with the way Yoda’s coloring came out.  I can’t seem to make that work whenever we do him.  He kept reminding me of limes this time around, and he even has three different shades of green going.

I did have fun with the Jedi Order symbol – I used red but created this pinstripe look.  At first I thought it looked too much like a candy cane so I ended up adding lines in the opposite direction and it worked well.  I think my favorite part is the yellow and orange border – I like how it encircles the picture and complements the other colors.  The robe and Jedi tunic was spot on so that made me happy as well.  Other than that, I used purple flowers because they are my favorite color flowers but I don’t think anything else really stands out.

Since I saw Rogue One again this weekend – next month’s will be the mandala of the X-wings and the Death Star.  It’s in the beginning of the book and the page right before Jar Jar and Kashyyyk.
