A "Return of the Jedi" publicity still was the donor the original was a L/MQ 600px 30yr old image scanned probably about 10 yrs ago there was some damage & fading. The first job was enlarging & upping the dpi, then cleaning & enhancing, next I added a new background before finishing with several effects.

Here is a quick sketch card of Leia from Return of the Jedi that I started in March. This reference was the first picture I saw of Leia from ROTJ way back in the early 80's in Bantha Tracks.
Princess Leia and Star Wars belong to George Lucas and not me. The reference came from my Star Wars Insider CD-Rom and a scan of my old Bantha Tracks. The first time I drew it I used a Topps card as reference. My sister has all of our ROTJ cards, so I couldn't use it this time!

I can't believe I haven't uploaded photos of this shoot. This is one of my favorites. The costume is from leiasmetalbikini.com. I sold my old version and this is the new version. I really love how it looks.
