“Aren’t you a little SHORT for a storm-trooper?”
She just saw her planet blown up, and all her loved ones vaporised, but Princess Leia still has a smart arse remark for a lowly cloned stormtrooper. Oh, what a woman.
In an attempt to purge my mind’s eye of images of the BEARDED SLAVE LEIA seen last weekend at Emerald City Comic Con, where he single handedly overwrote the adolescent memories of a thousands of nerds (including myself) here are some quick sketches of the Princess LEIA I would prefer to remember, drawn through bleeding eyes.
Over this past week I rented and watched the original three Star Wars movies, and as I’d already been doodling the characters, I decided to tidy up a few and submit them to the show, when I couldn’t think of any better ideas. The Princess LEIA was won by Mike Murnane, The YODA by Hop Matsuo, and the LUKE by Bosco Ng. I am happy to say that I won some GREAT pieces myself and I will have a full report on the Auction in a few days, when the all numbers are tallied up and the photographs come in… So Stay tuned!
(PS: Check out this post for my version of Han Solo and Chewbacca.)
Frequent visitors to this blog will have noticed that I have Star Wars on the brain at the moment… Here’s a little doodle (3×4 inches) of Princess LEIA done while watching TV last night..
Some fans of RED SQUADRON made a great, life-sized X-Wing rocket that actually takes off! Not to be outdone, GOLD SQUADRON fans staged their own Y-Wing rocket launch! (Thanks to MICHEAL MAY for these links.)
