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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Our Princess, our General.

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.

Star Wars Fan Art: If only…

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 found this on twitter and thought id share this here. - PrequelMemes

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.

ArtStation - The Legend of Anakin Skywalker, by Daniel de Almeida e Silva. "After watch the final episode of Star Wars Rebels, I couldn't stop thinking that a encounter like that could happen sometime. So, as a fan, I had decide to draw that moment when Ahsoka Tano finally meet the children of her beloved friend. Luke and Leia (with young Ben Solo in her arms), in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon, listening the countless stories from the Clone Wars and finally learning about the legend of Ana

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.

More Fan Art: Romance

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.

Promise by InnoYou on DeviantArt...Awww Obi Wan and Satine

Anakin and Padme from the prequels. Love the manga feel.

naps on Twitter: "That one time Obata (Death Note artist) drew Anakin and Padme… "
Takeshi Obata

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.

Star Wars Fan Art: Obi-Wan

Hello there!

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.

My blog for Obi-Wan with a side of Qui-Gon and Anakin.

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 and Satine, by Ashlee Casey. artstation.com

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.
