Yeah!! A gorgeous, sexy, yet kick-@$$ Princess! And I agree that she harkens to the original poster--very much so, except that she's really "loaded for bear" here, with two weapons and a cruiser-full of attitude! Love the expression, and the swirl of that cape and dress--most excellent!
Come to think of it, during those first few years after they met, Leia would've been the better combat trained, since Luke was just a farmboy. And of course he went straight into Jedi training with Obi-Wan and then Yoda, so it kinda makes sense that he would eventually build himself a green lightsaber(applying the Jedi class system set up in the KOTOR games) of a Counsilor and had Leia been allowed to use weapons to match her attitude during the trilogy she'd definitely be a Jedi Guardian. Of course I was thinking none of these thoughts when I gave her a blue saber for this pic, I just thought it looked cool And why did I just confess this, it would have looked as if I give great thought behind all my pics instead all these ideas coming along by lucky chance after I've done them
Oh, and apparently I've forgotten the law of the elements. Sure it's looks nice with her cape and dress tails flowing in the wind, but obviously the wind isn't strong enough to effect that tiny-@$$ tendril of smoke coming from the barrel of her blaster
"obviously the wind isn't strong enough to effect that tiny-@$$ tendril of smoke coming from the barrel of her blaster"
LOL!! I didn't notice that until you pointed it out! It's a small mistake that I'm certain you wouldn't make today, and really--it doesn't detract from this at all--I love Leia at her most "kick-@$$:" it's how all us girls loved her right from the start!
I'm sure that's where the inspiration for this pic came from. Though I do know that I was wanting to try Leia's "bun" hairstyle because the artist in the "Mind's Eye" comic did a really good job drawing Leia.
