Leia Organa is one of the most iconic heroines. I grew up recognizing her hair style, but after more recently getting into the Star Wars series, I learned how much of a bad-ass she is. She is definitely not your typical princess. And another reason I regret not having grown up experiencing Star Wars. I think she would have fit right in with the rest of my role models growing up.
I enjoyed working on this portrait and it is so far the longest I have done (since starting pastel portraits for uploads). I enjoyed seeing where the portrait was going. I honestly did not have any ideas on how the final portrait was going to end up. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did in making it.
I'm really enjoying this Star Wars theme of portraits. Until next time, keep busy staying dizzy!
