Leia by jackieocean Leia by jackieocean
A portrait of Princess Leia, from Star Wars. I always enjoyed the fact the she was a princess but wasn't all frou-frou and girly. Leia could kick butt and sling insults with the best of them! Random fact, but I share my birthday with Carrie Fisher, which I always thought was pretty fun.

This was originally drawn with a brown colored pencil on watercolor paper and then I painted a series of ink washes using standard black ink. It gives me a helpful base to work from. I then scanned it and all of the coloring was done in Photoshop with my tablet.

You can see the uncolored version of this right here: [link]

Full view is strongly suggested. ;)

Completed in April of 2006.

This is the third and final picture in my series of heroes from the classic Star Wars trilogy. These are the other two illustrations:
- Solo
- Skywalker

Superb! I really like her pensive expression. Sometimes we forget Leia was no stranger to tragedy....

Princess Leia is an awesome character (besides, it's refreshing to see a pic of her that's NOT in that metallic bikini. >__>)

I always liked that she was kickass, too. And the fact that you share your birthday with Carrie is awesome. (:

I can't offer much critique, apart from the fact that these are beautiful!

Wow, I love your entire gallery.
The way you do eyes and lips, especially, is great. Theres so much life in your pictures, just by looking at the eyes!
I want to fave most of your gallery but I dont think you'd like me for it.
You're a great artist and a big inspiration :3 Keep it up!
