So, here is another “Heroine Headshot”. Inspired by last week’s heroine (Yumi from Ulysses 31), I’ve drawn another blue-skinned alien girl, this time from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Riyo Chuchi is possibly the cutest of all the Star Wars babes that I know, so it’s unfortunate that she made only a handful of appearances in The Clone Wars. It would be nice if she could appear in future Star Wars media. And it would be even nicer if a figure was released of her, because I would love to have one!😋
I’m sure everyone is aware that last week, at the end of 2016, Carrie Fisher passed away. Carrie Fisher was without a doubt a huge part of Star Wars and Star Wars has always been a big part of my life, so I really wanted to produce something to honour Ms Fisher and her iconic portrayal of Leia Organa, the princess from that amazing galaxy far, far away.
Carrie Fisher, as Princess Leia, had several outfits in the Star Wars films, the most famous of which was the gold metal bikini she wore in Return of the Jedi. I was young when RotJ came out and boy, that bikini was a real eye-opener!😀 But for this picture, I chose to depict her in the costume she wore at the end of A New Hope, in the medal presentation scene. I’m sure that most people would agree Ms Fisher not only looked fittingly regal and resplendent in that scene; she looked almost angelic.🙂
Farewell, Ms Fisher. You have left this world, but the light of your memory will continue to shine brightly for a long. long time.
I’ve noticed there’s been a plethora of so-called “International Trailers” and “TV Spots” for the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on YouTube. They show some neat new shots and I had wanted a link to them here, but I can’t find what the original source for them is, so in the end I decided not to. In place of that, though, I’ve uploaded a little Rogue One gag I made.
I originally started drawing this because I thought the petite Felicity Jones looked kind of cute in that over-sized helmet, but then I decided to make a gag out it. I hope you like it!🙂 Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
