Star Wars - Female Force Five by Robert-Shane Star Wars - Female Force Five by Robert-Shane
I've posted several of my Star Wars drawings here already - but I thought it was time to show that I can draw more than Stormtroopers! So what could be more different than a selection of the female characters from the Star Wars universe.

My main focus of this piece was the composition - and I knew I wanted to have the lightsabers set out symetrically - and to use them as framing devices within the piece. So my selection of characters and their positioning was partly determined by who has what lightsaber.

The first thing I tackled was to draw Jedi Leia's face. This is a variation of her character from the 'expanded universe' of stories - so I'm guessing that not everyone will be familiar with the idea of her as a Jedi. So I knew that if I got her face wrong - nobody would know who she's supposed to be! I'm pretty pleased with how the likeness turned out - I used some photo reference - but it's not a straight copy as I altered the angle.

This is an original drawing - first done in pencil - then ink - before being scanned and coloured in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet. It was drawn at a very high-resolution - the Photoshop file is over 400mb.

Hope you like!

Wow, impressive work. Really like how Ahsoka turned out, any chance you'll make another with just her in it?

I admire the beautiful and strong female characters in the Star Wars universe so much! Great idea to bring them together like this :) Awesome composition - looks like this could be one of the movie posters, I guess that's the look you were going for? :P Love your style, especially how you have represented Ahsoka in your own style!

Thank you very much. You're right - Star Wars does have lots of strong female characters and I thought it was about time to see some of them collected in one place like this. If you like this version of Ahsoka - I have also drawn another since this one: [link]
