the evolution of the leia and luke paintings

These paintings started as drawings in my sketchbook that I did for fun last fall. I liked how the sketches turned out, so I decided to paint them.

The idea was to do my version of classic portraits of the actors from the original Star Wars movies as if they were nobility from the renaissance. I really liked the idea of combining finished, rendered faces with graphite line drawings of ornate frames.
