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.
