You’re our only hope

“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re our only hope.” – Princess Leia Organa, Star Wars: A New Hope
Princess Leia (and Carrie Fisher) is a massive favourite of mine. I’ve always planned on drawing her just before she placed the Death Star plans in R2D2 yet kept on putting it off, thinking my artistic skills were inadequate.
I finally decided to go ahead with the drawing after watching Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Blu Ray. How would young Leia, Luke or Han feel knowing what would happen to Ben? Such a tragedy. The final artwork was drawn in coloured pencil and coloured with Copic markers.
