Colored Pencil Drawing of Han and Leia (Harrison Ford & Carrie Fisher) from Star Wars

han-and-leia-copySigh. It’s hard to believe Carrie Fisher is really gone…

I use my iPad as a way to display the source photo I’m drawing so I can look at the image and then try to replicate it on the paper nearby (by eyeballing it). Anyway, I keep a folder of images I like that I’d like to possibly draw someday and this was one that was in it for quite a while. Well… with Carrie’s passing, I thought it was time to try it.  (Freehand colored pencil)

It now hangs in our dining room.

Pencil Drawing of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in Star Wars

LeiaI’ve been on a Star Wars kick lately and I realized, while I’ve drawn Luke and Han a couple times, I’ve never drawn Leia. So this was an attempt to draw Leia but not using one of the typical iconic pictures of her. Empire Strikes Back is still my favorite Star Wars movie, so this picture just seemed the right choice. It’s done completely in graphite pencil on Bristol paper. (January 2014)
