Han Solo was my first favorite Star Wars character. When I was a kid, everybody loved the hero Luke and his cool lightsaber. Me? I loved the scoundrel. Still do. Here’s an ode to the smuggler-turned-Rebel (I don’t own any of the following; all rights belong to the individual artists):
Rarely did I find any art of Han without his trusty blaster at his side.
Princess Leia Organa Skywalker Solo is an iconic figure in Star Wars. I feel like I didn’t appreciate her enough in the early days, but I’m making up for it! She’s a remarkable character, played by a remarkable actress. Here’s some loving fan art for you to peruse (I don’t own any of the following, all rights belong to the individual artists):
I love this art nouveau-style Leia.
This is a great portrait of Leia in repose, with the weight of the galaxy on her shoulders.
This doesn’t really look like her, but there’s something about this painting of Cloud City Leia that speaks to me. Her pride and dignity are apparent here.
This is a lovely portrayal of Jedi Knight Leia, which I think we all would have loved to see.
General Organa is perhaps my favorite incarnation of Leia.

There’s so much tragedy in Star Wars, it’s understandable that some fans visualize our favorite characters in better circumstances. What if things hadn’t gone so horribly wrong? Here’s a few scenarios (I own none of the following, all rights belong to the original artists):
The Skywalker family on the beach. I love the idea of Uncle Obi-Wan.
I think most of us would love to see Ahsoka meet Luke, Leia, and still-innocent little Ben Solo, with a vision of Anakin at his best. You can still see the reluctance on Leia’s face to admire her father.
This sweet scene is well within the realm of possibility; one just wishes it could have presaged better times for the Solo family.
The Ben Solo that Should Have Been. Sigh. I love that he’s wearing his father’s dice, and has a good blaster by his side.
If only he could have held her…one last time. I love the busted eye lens, so he can look on her with his own vision. More manga emotion.
This might actually come to pass, if the Mandalorian Season Two rumors are true. What could be more wonderful than Ahsoka and The Child? The light and depth perception in this painting is incredible.
The amazing talent of Star Wars fans continues to amaze me. If you like what you see here, go to the artists’ websites and show them some love!

Love has always been an important part of Star Wars, whether romantic, parental, or just the love of friendship. I’ve found a lot of beautiful fan art showcasing romance that I wanted to share here. (I don’t own any of the following, all rights belong to the individual artists).
Obi-Wan and Satine from Clone Wars. My favorite relationship besides Han and Leia.
Anakin and Padme from the prequels. Love the manga feel.
I’m just getting to know Kanan and Hera from Rebels.
Han and Leia from the Original Trilogy.
If you’re an Expanded Universe fan, we can’t forget Luke and Mara Jade.
Though technically not a couple, I believe Cassian and Jyn from Rogue One would have been close given the chance.
No matter how you feel about Reylo, there’s some gorgeous fan art showing their potential relationship.
I’m continually stunned by the artistic talent of Star Wars fans, and will continue to share some of my favorites.

I’m in the middle of an Obi-Wan Kenobi obsession right now, so here’s a fan art tribute (I don’t own any of it; all rights belong to the individual artists):
I love how this one focuses on the love of the master, and the grief of the apprentice.
Obi-Wan in his prime during the Clone Wars. I love the pensiveness here.
Satine looking at Obi-Wan with joy and love; Obi-Wan looking weary, of being a General and of war, and perhaps regretting what could have been. “Had you said the word, I would have left the Jedi Order.”
Obi-Wan alone in the desert fills me with deep sadness. I can’t imagine his loneliness and grief. But Tatooine’s desert was a crucible that burned away everything extraneous, and left wisdom and compassion.
That compassion is shown here after he kills Maul, the creature that killed his Master and the woman he loved.
I love this character in all his phases; to me, he’s a great Jedi, and a wise human being.
These artists are amazing! If you like what you see, go to their sites to see more and show your love!
There’s so much incredible Star Wars fan out there, I thought I’d show a few of my favorites, with credit to the artists, of course. There’s so much gorgeous art, this may become a weekly thing for me. Enjoy!
This first one got me in the feels–it shows Kylo Ren remembering his childhood friendship with Chewbacca. Ouch–literally and figuratively.
I like Reylo a lot, but my first Star Wars love story was Han and Leia. This piece is fantastic.
I’ve always loved Art Nouveau, and this piece of Leia just sums up her character perfectly.
Threepio always did remind me of a Victorian gentleman. Priceless.
Darth Vader drinking tea in a meadow full of flowers just makes me happy.
This is another great piece that juxtaposes images of evil with beauty. Love it.
Psychedelic Chewie is just awesome.
Check out these awesome artists for more of their gorgeous work!
