I did this one because Zam Wesell was my favorite character in the star wars movie. I think she has the most unique looking costume, and Ebas really did a fantastic rendition of her. Therese something about a female assassin that is so sexy to me.
This is a trading card I did for Topps' STAR WARS Galaxies 5 card set, released today.
Before anyone gets confused, this is from the very first Star Wars novel, SPLINTER OF THE MIND'S EYE (1978), by Alan Dean Foster. It starts off with Luke and Leia flying to a diplomatic mission on one planet only to be forced into a crash-landing on another. Luke was in his X-Wing, and Leia was piloting a 2-seater Y-Wing with Threepio. I'm assuming Leia wasn't doing this in her white robes....
I guess I always liked the idea of Leia in the rebel pilot flight gear.
