Biker Babe by JohnStaton Biker Babe by JohnStaton
This is a convention sketch I did some time ago. The commissioner was kind enough to send me a jpeg.

In retrospect, I wish I had orieneted my paper in a landscape fashion, as opposed to the portrait orientation I went with here. It would've fit better, and allowed me to include more of the speeder bike. Even so it turned out surprising tolerable for something I threw together while trying to shill BGC posters. [link]

And, yes, I'm fully aware that Princess Leia had long since changed out of her metal bikini by the time the speeder bike scene took place in Return of the Jedi, but a man can dream. ;)

Two of my favorite things about Star Wars, this is amazing. It's like a Kit Kat and a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup rolled together. Fav'd!

Er ah, she's translucent, because of--the force...or something. ^^;

You did a great job on Leia, her pose and expression (and, of course, the legendary LMB), and the bike looks cool too :)
Put them together and you get awesomeness! :D

Like I said, this should have gone into the movie.

It's a shame they covered Leia up during the rest of the film(s) (Yet another reason I feel 'Trek has the advantage over 'Wars. Every chance they got, Uhura was stuffed into an outfit skimpier that her standard uniform, which was also skimpy!:XD:)

Could you imagine it if they ran with the scantily clad Leia theme? Leia could show up as the unidentified alien bounty hunter in a shiny leather catsuit! Or, when she befriends the Ewoks(No, it's not what you're thinkin.:XD:) they, being little folk, wouldn't have a long flowing dress:roll: to give her, but rather a skimpy fur bikini.:devilish:

The money in additional action figure and poster sales alone would probably buy Lucas the American presidency.:evillaugh:

But I digress...;p
