Fan Art: Han Solo

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.

Blaster: check. Falcon: check. Shiny boots: check. Excellent.

Kamome Shirahama

I love the Blade Runner feel to this one (another great Harrison Ford character I love).

Ahead of the Odds, by Raymond Swanland

This one’s a little creepy and feral, but it’s cool.

I couldn’t find an artist for this one. Anyone know?

Having a drink with his old buddy Lando. This looks to be a scene from The Last Shot (a SW novel).

Let’s not forget young Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich. Solo: A Star Wars Story was great fun.

It’s Pilot Appreciation Day!

Who’s your favorite Star Wars pilot? Here’s a list of contenders…

“He was the best starpilot in the galaxy.” Even though most of his missions ended up with crash landings.

Anakin Skywalker

He destroyed the first Death Star. Without his computer.

Luke Skywalker

I never understood the Wedge obsession, but okay. He’s cool. Bonus points for being Obi-Wan’s uncle in real life.

Wedge Antilles

He made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. You know the story. (If you haven’t watched Solo, watch it NOW).

Han Solo

A trigger-happy flyboy…and the Resistance’s star pilot.

Poe Dameron

He’s the son of Solo, so…duh. Bonus points for not killing his Mom.

Kylo Ren

Wish I knew of some excellent female pilots. Maybe Rey counts? Anyone know of other great female pilots? Let me know in the comments!

J.J.

Like father like son
You got: Poe Dameron You’re probably a good, dependable person with a heroic spirit. I mean, look at this guy – he’s flying an X-Wing and has a great chin. That’s the chin of a hero, my friend.
Ace fighter pilot of the Resistance

I like Han Solo. Not only did he make that Kessel Run, but he got out of that asteroid field in Empire. But for someone who can barely drive a car, it’s hard to choose. They’re all great.
