This was one of the first commissions from SDCC 2008. 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.
