Star Wars Warning Labels

I saw this assignment pop up the other day and thought it looked fun but had no idea what to do. Then, on what turned out to be an almost 6hr trip from Fredericksburg to Philly, I thought of something. I remembered reading a list of ridiculous warning labels like a chainsaw’s “Do not attempt to stop with hands” or coffee cups saying “Caution: Contents hot,” so I took the chainsaw one and altered it a bit to work for the lightsaber.

 

Here’s my first attempt at it. It’s hard to see on the smallish picture but I added yellow and white onto the hilt (?) of the lightsaber. Drawing, even little lines, is tough without a mouse.

After making these two I made one more from when Anakin and Obi Wan were fighting. I couldn’t find a picture that I liked of the fight so I had to take a screen shot. I got the signs from websites but photoshopped them into my screenshot.

The warnings I made didn’t really help the characters in the movie though since Anakin (with Obi Wan’s “help”) fell into the lava and Luke ended up losing his hand on a lightsaber. Yay irony 😀

Also, I need to do a post outlining what I’m doing for my final project. I shall get on that in a couple days.

    This is great Meg! It will definitely be great to see all of your design assignments the rest of the semester.

    Well, that warning didn’t help! I grabbed the blue part of many a plastic light saber during childhood. I’m probably destined to die.
