Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Leia and Han Solo by LauraHollingsworth Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Leia and Han Solo by LauraHollingsworth
Ok so quick break from The Silver Eye arts for a Star Wars painting!

I rewatched all of the movies in anticipation of The Force Awakens and in the theater I loved how Han and Leia's hug mirrored the one at the end of Return of the Jedi! It made me want to paint something like this, my only problem was that there was no way to do it without it being cheesy, so I had to fully embrace the cheese in the end.

I used some of the cool older Star Wars posters as inspiration. It was a challenge getting older Harrison Ford right, because his head isn't actually in-frame on that part in TFA, but I think I captured his likeness decently anyway with help of internet references.

Now it's hard to look at this piece of art without a heavy heart, with Madame Fisher being one with the Force.

Breathtaking picture! I LOVE it!
It has that bittersweet feeling: the happiness of reuniting once more... And the sadness of never get to do it again...

No wonder their son turned out so emotionally wild, I can't believe how Leia became so cold and stiff in her old age.   She really lost the fiery passion she had in her youth! But Han did not, he stayed as warm as he ever was in the old films and I was taken aback by how cold she was towards him in TFA.     Hurt my feelings so much that they were separated.  

Thanks for listening to a stranger rant for a second!   I think your painting captures really well what (sadly) happened to their relationship over time.
