The scene where Leia hides the Death Star plans in R2D2 is so iconic, and I was inspired to create my take on it.
“This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.Princess Leia Organa, Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
Princess/General Leia Organa is one of my most favourite fictional characters. She was such a strong female lead in a time when there were few. One of the only good things about the newest Skywalker trilogy is that they made her a general <3
I’ve been playing around with my art style lately, drawing inspiration from art legends such as Stanley Lau and Sakimichan (which is why her style of face looks different from my usual drawings!)
Coloured completely with Copic Markers and no digital colouring additions (for once haha) – what you see is what you get with this illustration.
