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.

Full view is strongly suggested.
Completed in April of 2006.
