My First Leia

[Lopez]

Hello all, hoping SDCC treated everyone well. This was one of the first commissions I did there and definitely my first Princess Leia ever.

It was kinda strange, because I was going to do just a random female in a Leia outfit, but it just was not working for me, so I tried to give her the Carrie Fisher look. I did a couple head sketches and then it was like, "oh-kay there she is."

This was actually a real fun commission for me. Now I can't wait to draw her again. The Star Wars stuff was never anything I thought about drawing too much, but now I'm actually looking forward to doing more!

I'm currently jamming on a piece with Livio Ramondelli, featuring everyone's favorite bounty hunter and some of his favorite ladies.

Sweeet. I'm trying to figure out what kind of paper you guys are always using when you do the pencil crayon/ink. What is that??

Looks great Michael. For a first time Star Wars pix I have to say you really nailed it to the wall. One luck person to get that.

thanks for the comments guys. i will definitely draw an amidala , the star wars stuff is something i am totally diggin right now.
as far as the medium goes, it's just colored paper,this provides the midtones, markers the same color family as the paper, but darker values for your shadows and white prisma colored pencils for your highlights.
Thanks again for the comments. Also,Kabuki Joe, yessir this is your Leia. Mike

Great pic, although the body itself doesn't look much like Carrie. Her assets, front and rear are too ample for Ms. Fisher.

The face itself is excellent, and if one doesn't mind the body inaccuracy it's a home run all the way!

The body is a bit too . . . ample, but the face is exquisite - much prettier than Carrie Fisher but still similar enough to her. Great job.
