Taking a break from some Halloween-themes today and posting a recent portrait of the late Carrie Fisher in her iconic role of Princess Leia Organa (Skywalker). This is during “The Empire Strikes Back” era in the Star Wars universe of stories.
Some video of the on-screen Photoshop files shows a bit of the detail of the work-in-progress. The unfinished areas are a deliberate decision to focus on the actor and the attempt to achieve a viable likeness to Carrie.
At this size above, you can see the interplay of the digital painting layers interacting with the multitude of intaglio layers to develop the portrait of Leia.
This image was created using Adobe Illustrator, Corel Painter, and Adobe Photoshop.
