Star Wars: Leia Boushh by TereseNielsen Star Wars: Leia Boushh by TereseNielsen
This image was commissioned for the Star Wars Miniatures: Imperial Entanglements set. The visual requirements for this illustration were not much more than show Leia in the Boushh disguise, with the headgear off.

The mediums are acrylic, colored pencil and oil. The size is about 16x10".

I like this. I'm so tired of only seeing Leia in her slave outfit, especially since Ms. Fisher really isn't that attractive to me...

wonderful colours and textures :-) I think I faved it some time ago- I'll be sure to check.

Could you tell me how you do the sun flares in the background? I'm curious to know if they can be done without an airbrush as I haven't had much success so far.

Very nice to see someone making a picture of Leia where she wears something else than that awful bikini. ;)
And extremely well done anyway, your whole gallery is mind blowing.

This is awesome on so many levels. Most of all, I'm happy that you actually made it look like Carrie Fisher. It amazes me how much SW artwork is out there that don't even bother to get her likeness right (but they try extra hard with Ford or Hamill)

Very nice style. It reminds me a lot of Hugh Fleming's Star Wars comic covers in the late 90's (Tales of the Jedi, etc).

Wow, that turned out looking fantastic! It reminds me of a Drew Struzan painting :D (if you don't know who that is, he's the most famous movie poster artist of all time)

You're so welcome! :nod:

And I was pretty certain that you would be a fan of his work :D - anyone who draws anything Star Wars professionally knows he's a legend! :O Of course, all of his art is amazing, not just SW ;) Keep up the great work! :)

I admire your talents, especially because you use traditional tools. And if it's not too much to ask, could you explain something to me?

-Why do you use acrylics and oils? Why not just one of them? Is there some benefit?

Thanks in advance.

:iconteresenielsen:
TereseNielsen Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
I like to use acrylics to wash in the over all color and to splatter in a textural feel. Oils I like for subtle rendering of things and it works well on top of acrylic. Plus, I get bored just using one medium. :)

I love everything about this, from Leia's expression to her pose to the lighting to the background. That's great that you can draw the SW characters and make them look just like the actors! That takes a lot of skill. Your mixed mediums are amazing.

I don't always nail the likeness. It can be tricky, but I try.
