Princess Leia Sketch Collection

With Con season over for me, I want to share the sketches I have collected in my Princess Leia sketch book. I got idea from Barb. She was showing off her new sketches while she was at C2E2 I believe. I asked about it and she made a post which you can read here.

Since I'm out of wall space for art/prints and I've been trying to cut back on buying toys expect for POPs, (okay this plan went out the window during SDCC) I thought this was a great idea. I could have a book of sketches and they would be drawings specifically for me.

On Barb's recommendation I bought myself the Moleskine Art plus Watercolor book. I got the 5 x 8.25 size which has been pretty great so far. It's great for different mediums that artists use. I've had folks use markers, watercolors, crayons, pencils,

Now one to the sketches!! This first batch I picked up at Emerald City Comicon!







This one was a a sketch on a 3.5 card that The Ninjabot sent me with an order I placed. I glued into my book using acid free glue.


And these last three I got a San Diego Comic Con!





I love my sketches. Please excuse the watermarks but I've gotten a few photos taken and used for something else. One of my charm photos was used to advertise a monthly box. Hopefully they don't distract from the photo.

The artist I got sketches from were Terry Dodson, Katie Cook, Art Baltazar, Cara McGee, The Ninjabot, Naomi Romero, Raina Telgemeier, and Arielle Jovellanos. I found them all in the artist alley of the cons I went too! Some I knew about and some I discovered while I was walking up and down. The sketches all range from free to under $100 and have been worth every penny.

Keep in mind the more work/color, the more the sketch will cost. Sometimes a color piece will be a bit less then what they are asking because of the size of my book. Sometimes it won't matter. In the end it's up to you and what you are willing to spend but trust me, no matter the price I have loved every single sketch so far.

I'll ask the artist if they would be willing to draw Leia and let them run with it. Like Barb recommended, let them go with what they want to create/draw. The only direction I may give them is if I want a specific Leia, like the Hoth Leia that Katie Cook drew or Bespin Leia from Arnel Baluyot / The Ninjabot.

I also took another idea from Barb and have a whatever goes sketch book. I've gotten other characters in that book like Jubilee and Louise Belcher. I'm going to share those in another post.

I love sharing the work I've gotten and I love seeing folks other commissions. If you have any to share, let me know!!

Thanks for reading!
