'To Me, She's Royalty'.

I'm not going to lie, this hit hard. Not only was she an iconic figure of a series that i adore, but she was a champion for mental health issues, women's rights, outspoken, witty, charming, unapologetic and a fantastic role model.

I had the chance to meet her at the star wars Celebration earlier this year and i didn't take it, and i think i'll always regret that, so i thought a little something like this could be nice. Plus, if i'm honest, it's all i ever really know how to react to this sort of thing.

I chose to go for her younger Leia self as that's how i first knew of her, and it's how she will be viewed by so many for so many years to come. 

Rest in peace, Princess.

thanks very much! and yeah i thought this one would be better to do as it felt looser and more natural, like a leader in the field.

Stunning portrait. I was never really a Star Wars fan personally, but she was certainly a wonderful woman in her own right.
