Stubborn Slave Leia by me eBas in Copic

Location  Long Beach
Tweaked the colors on this one a little because my PS skills were really lacking back then, not that they are stellar right now, but I'm getting better

This was done back in the day where I refused to care about sales in the Pin up world and added a lot more story telling in my pieces and I enjoyed trying to come up with scenes that the character might be in. In this case it was #SlaveLeia and I googled her (cause I've never been commissioned to draw her b4) and in every pic I saw drawn of her, she was laying down striking a pose and it's a crowd pleaser and like I said, I was in the mind set of not caring about sales, I had her (in pin up style) being stubborn and not giving into #JabatheHut 's wishes without putting up a fight. I always wondered if any women saw that in my story telling

I dont bring this print to shows anymore because guess what sells better, her posing and looking sexy because compared to this one, this loses 90% of the time. My website will be the only place to buy this in the near future

Back to work now and happy weekend and remember to give a smile away today

Awesomely done. Really love the little story that goes with this piece as well.

As a woman I despise the nicely posed slave Leias we see everywhere, and all the cosplay slave Leias oozing come-hither looks at cameras. Carrie Fisher hated the costume, and she loved getting to kill Jabba. Thank you for a more realistic depiction. Of *course* she's horrified to have a giant slug grabbing at her, and of course she wants to kill him.

Fantastic work.

Like the expression on Leia's face. The red really stands out.

Looking good. More Slave Leia is always welcome.
