In 2015, we have been felt by the force as we are introduced to the debut of BB8 in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, this BB8 hand art became the true inspiration thanks to Ms.MaoMaoz's lip art version of this intergalactic masterpiece!


BB8 Lip Art:

Step 1: Outline

I begin, as always, with a white outline of the entire scene with white paint (Mehron Paradise). If you like, you can also use a white eyeliner pencil.

Step 2: Light Brown

Next, comes the fill-in process. To start, I used Light Brown (Mehron Paradise) for the ground.

Step 3: Yellow Moon

Next, diving into my yellow, I painted a moon on the top corner.

Step 4: Black Night Sky

Then, I filled the empty gap of the hand with black for a night sky.

Step 5: Galaxy Effect

Then, I patted on a mix of blue, purple, and pink shadow to make a galaxy effect on the night sky. I used Urban Decay Electric shadows in Chaos, Urban, and Savage.

Step 6: Stars

Then, I added a white highlight to half of the yellow moon, then used more white, along with yellow, to create some dots and twinkling stars.

Step 7: BB8

Now, for the BB8 robot, I filled in the base with white, then used orange, grey, and black to create the outlines and details on the robot's body.

Step 8: Complete!

May the force be with you!
