Star Wars Fan Art: Women of Star Wars

Here’s a collection of great fan art I’ve been finding of the wonderful women of Star Wars:

I love images of Ahsoka with Morai, and this is one of the best I’ve seen.

Naturally I can’t find the artist for this one. It was uploaded by Dorothy on Pinterest, that’s all I know!

This is a simple drawing of Admiral Amylin Holdo, but I love the purple in it in honor of her awesome hair, lol.

I think the artist’s name here is Niki LeFay. Maybe?

Jyn is one tough woman but she looks pretty and vulnerable here.

No artist info, but it’s on displate.com.

This is a gorgeous portrait of Rey. Again, a tough young woman whose youth and beauty are captured in a still moment.

I could never find any Sabine Wren fan art that I really liked, but this one is great. I wanted one without her helmet on, since I like to see faces, although this one has a manga kind of feel. Love the colors.

Zyralynn on devientart.com

What “Women of Star Wars” fan art collection would be complete without Leia Organa? This one is lovely, capturing her regal face with an underlying sadness.

kittrose on devientart.com

I tried to find one of Hera Syndulla that I liked, of just Hera without Kanan, but most of them were either cartoonish or sexualized (or they didn’t look like her at all). I’ll keep looking. Do you have any favorites of Hera?

Star Wars Fan Art: C3PO

C-3PO has never really been one of my favorite droids–he was more annoying than anything else, lol. But over the years I’ve softened toward him. I especially liked him in The Rise of Skywalker. And I’ve seen a lot of great fan art of him. Which is impressive, because what do you do to make a droid, whose face remains the same all the time, interesting? You do whimsical, that’s what you do!

I love this series by Kyle Hagey, who puts Star Wars characters into beautiful meadows of flowers while having tea or knitting or some such thing. Threepio is daydreaming here, an idea that tickles me. What does Threepio daydream about? Safety, probably. No laser battles, people behaving, things going as they should. Oil baths. Artoo not getting them into trouble, that sort of thing, lol.

Kyle Hagey on etsy.com

This is another artist whose series I like. I just love the slapdash colors and sense of movement. It looks like confetti is coming off of Threepio, as if in celebration of him.

Alessandro Pautasso on curioos.com

This outfit just seems to fit Threepio. A Victorian English gentleman overly concerned with propriety.

Greg Peltz on buzzfeed.com

Who knew the innards of Threepio’s head would be an interesting subject for art? Funny thing is, I never noticed that thing sticking out at the top of his head. Has that always been there???

Dash Martin, devientart.com

Another Victorian, or possibly Edwardian, Threepio. This time he’s got a title: Baron von C3PO. I think he’d be quite pleased with that.

Baron von C3PO by Terry Fan, wanelo.com

This one’s great because he looks like some kind of droid fashion model strutting his stuff, lol.

Star Wars Fan Art: Anakin Skywalker

Anakin is interesting, as there are two sides to him: the Jedi hero, and the conflicted human being tempted by the Dark Side. I wanted to feature mostly Anakin images here, and maybe do a Darth Vader post later, but I think these images contain one or the other aspect of himself (or both).

I love, love, love Jake Bartok’s Medieval Star Wars series, and his Anakin is no exception. I love how his sword shines blue here, as well as the inclusion of the metal hand wrapped in a bandage. He’s clearly heroic Anakin here, but there’s also something in his eyes that looks menacing and intense.

Jake Bartok on twitter.com

This image of Clone Wars Anakin is wonderful. We only ever saw an animated version of Anakin fight with the Clones in the war, so this one with Hayden Christensen seems to fulfill a deep need, lol.

Andreas Bazylewski on etsy.com

I thought this one was really interesting, as it portrays Anakin had he won the battle with Obi-Wan, destroyed Palpatine, and became Emperor himself. He cuts a regal figure.

Alvaro Fernandez, 9gag.com

This is the one in the bunch that I can’t find an artist for, but I wanted to include it. It’s a kind of flip on when Anakin was using the Force to float a ball above his hand when he was with Padme in AOTC. But here he’s gone Dark Side and the ball is the Death Star. Very cool.

There are many images of a split Anakin/Vader, but I like this one the most. I like the realism, the suggestion of dark energy around him, and the red shadows suggesting blood. It’s a very vivid, arresting image.

Star Wars Fan Art: Yoda

I found a lot of mystical portrayals of Yoda, which makes sense, as he’s deeply in touch with the Force and is one of the wisest Jedi Masters who ever lived. I like the aesthetic of this one; you can sense a lot of movement, like the spinning of worlds and galaxies. He looks like he’s in a deep, meditative Force dream.

Raymond Swanland, imgur.com

I like this one because it shows how alone Yoda ultimately was (or perhaps as alone as any deeply committed Jedi was). He stands alone on an outcropping in the Dagobah swamp (I’m assuming this is where he is), contemplating life and the Force and the cosmos, and whatever else crosses his mind. Darkness encroaches, but the light filters through to illuminate him.

Aaron Nakahara, crossconnectmag.com

Since Yoda is so old (about 900 years) and all we’ve ever known is the old Yoda, it’s fun to think about what he was like when he was young. This one is pretty awesome; it shows him wearing very different clothes, with all kinds of accoutrements that is a sharp contrast to the simple brown robe he wears in his later years. I like the necklace, and wonder what the symbol means, if anything. Anyone know?

Young Yoda, by Vincent Chambin, artstation.com

This one is just fun, colorful, and happy. The artist has done other paintings in this style with several other characters, but I feel it’s particularly apt for Yoda, as it captures the playful, mischievous personality beneath the serious Jedi Master.

Alessandro Pautasso, curioos.com

This is a beautiful piece with an Eastern flavor that I just love. Lucas took a lot inspiration from Eastern film and philosophies, so it seems apt for Yoda, a wise warrior-monk of the Jedi.

Tsuneo Sanda, mymodernmet.com

I can’t seem to find the artist for this one (there’s always at least one, lol) but I just love it, even though it’s kind of sad. Here he seems to be on Dagobah thinking about the tragedy of the Jedi, the tragedy of Anakin, heck, the tragedy of the galaxy. The image is framed by dark tendrils, as if it’s the opening of the dark side cave, but Yoda is surrounded by light. It’s lovely and sad and moving, and I wish I could find the artist’s name. Anyone know?

Star Wars Fan Art: Ahsoka Tano

There’s a TON of Ahsoka Tano fan art out there, and there are many that are fantastic. It was hard to choose just a few for this post, but I came up with a few favorites:

I think I’ve posted this one on here before, but I love it so much I had to do it again. I think it was created before Season Two of the Mandalorian, before Grogu and Ahsoka actually met; but this prescient artist clearly imagined a tender moment between them.

I love this one with Ahsoka’s talisman, Morai, and the symbols of the World Between Worlds.

a-smiling-travesty.tumblr.com

The energy and brilliance of this one is wonderful.

Natalie Herrera, artstation.com

This one is just as bright and colorful, but softer, less fierce and more luminescent.

Ahsoka’s relationship with Rex is special, and I love this one of them together as their world shatters and falls apart.

Ahsoka the White. The colors are beautiful here.

Ksenia Zelentsova, artstation.com

I began this post with the artist S. Menyhei, and I’ll close out with the same artist, this time of Ahsoka and Vader during their confrontation on Malachor. The first was quiet and tender, while this one is dynamic and full of emotion. The many sides of Ahsoka.

Star Wars Fan Art: Kylo Ren/Ben Solo

Kylo Ren is one of those characters from Star Wars that really hit a nerve with a LOT of people. There’s something about his tortured, divided soul that calls to so many. I scrolled through a ton of Kylo fan art. A vast amount illustrated Reylo, and though I’m not against Reylo and recognize his deep connection with Rey, I wanted this to be just about Kylo/Ben.

There’s a lot of great stuff (and a lot of weird stuff, lol), but the following images stood out to me in some way:

I loved this windblown kind of look to a contemplative Kylo. The blood on his hands speaks volumes.

littlechmura.tumblr.com

This is the Ben Solo who would have existed if Kylo Ren had not had a chance to take root. Total “Son of Han Solo” look going on here. I notice he still has his lightsaber, though. A blue one?

therealmcgee.tumblr.com

I thought this one was really interesting: Ben in death and arranged the way his grandmother, Padme, had been at her funeral. The flowers in the hair, and the dice entwined in his fingers the way her necklace from Anakin had been in hers. Shivers.

Viv on Twitter.com

I love the use of light and shadow in this one, and how Kylo is in both, torn between the two.

“Torn Apart” by Veronika-Art on deviantart.com

I don’t usually care for images of Kylo with his mask on–it’s a bit boring for me. I like to see his expressive face. But something about this one haunts me. He looks like a Nazgul or something, a dark, shadowy thing.

KloeDeSaga on deviantart.com

I like this one of Kylo contemplating Vader’s mask, while bathed in the light. The calendar in the background with the Death Star on it is a nice touch, too, lol.

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.

Sean Miller, artstation.com

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.

Liam Brazier, inprnt.com

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.

Jake Bartok, twitter.com

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

Alan Brooks, alangbrooks.com

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

Akao Mayo, akaomayo.com

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.

The Mandalorian: Fan Art

I’ve done several posts on Star Wars fan art, and it was great fun. I haven’t done one for The Mandalorian yet, and I’ve found some great artwork that I wanted to share. Enjoy!

This one is absolutely lovely, with Grogu touching Din’s face as in the final episode of Season Two. The blue butterflies are a nice touch.

Cecilia G.F., Artstation.com

I love how this one shows the two faces of Din Djarin.

This one is a whimsical, colorful rendition of Din, Grogu, and Ahsoka. I love her staff (the one we see her with at the end of Rebels) leaning against the tree.

Marsxit, wattpad.com

This is a great one of Din and Grogu with Cara Dune. I love that shiny, iridescent armor!

Laurens Spruit, artstation.com

I’m guessing that’s one of Tatooine’s suns reflecting off Din’s helmet in this great piece.

Liam Brazier, reddit.com

And because my daughter constantly plays Fortnite, I just had to include this official screen art. Baby looks like he’s having a blast as Din shoots off laser bolts.

Hope you enjoyed this fantastic fan art. There’s so much great talent out there, I’m sure I’ll be posting more now and then as I can’t help myself. Do you have some favorite Star Wars fan art, or make your own? Share in the comments below!

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).

Fan Art: Leia

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.

Megan Lara, http://www.meganlara.com

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.
