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....
