Star Wars Fan Art: Padme Amidala

I had a surprisingly hard time finding Padme art that I really liked. Most of the fan art I found was simply regurgitations of Padme in her famous outfits. Which are gorgeous (check out my post on Padme’s fashion sense here), but not quite what I was looking for. I wanted to see her in a different light, if possible, rather than just as a paper doll or Anakin’s love. Her character deserves so much more than that. Anyway, here’s a few that I found that I liked:

Padme is a warrior in her own right in Jake Bartok’s medieval Star Wars series (which I adore, if you haven’t figured that out by now).

Okay, so this is Padme in her famous Naboo picnic outfit (which is one of my favorites), but I loved the background and just thought it was lovely.

This is the cover of the paperback version of the first Padme book by E.K. Johnston called Queen’s Shadow. I love this image, how Padme looks sophisticated and determined, and the view of Coruscant in the background. The book is pretty good, too, more of a character study than anything else, but I liked it.

I guess Padme as a Jedi is a thing in some parts of the fandom? It’s an odd thought to me, but I like this image of her with a lightsaber, another instance of her as a warrior in her own right.

I do believe this is a take on an outfit she wore in an episode of Clone Wars (don’t ask me which one, please!). I like the action shots of Padme, as a woman taking control and getting shit done.

Star Wars Fan Art: Luke Skywalker

Here’s some more Star Wars fan art, this time centering around Luke Skywalker.

I tend to love pencil drawings and sketches, and this one of young Luke is great.

This one reminds me of a Blade Runner Luke. So cool!

Liam Brazier is a favorite of mine, I love how he uses color in a mosaic-kind of style.

If you haven’t seen Jake Bartok’s Medieval Star Wars series, you’re missing out. They’re fantastic! I love how there’s a mysterious blue smoke around his hand, suggesting the Force.

Black-clad Luke is the simply the best. I absolutely love this image.

Another wonderful sketch, capturing every line and emotion on older Luke’s face.

This one’s a bit freaky, but I like it. I remember his mechanical hand as being black, not silver, but who cares? It works here.
