Bisoujo Senshi Hime Leia

Now You Too Can Draw Someone You Can Pretend is From Star Wars - Oh thank the gods io9 commented on this before I got a hold of it. Saw this tutorial posted on darth_artsy and was aghast at the amazingly generic manga chick they were trying to pass off as Natalie Portman. The 1997 Japanese adaption of the original trilogy proved that Star Wars manga could be downright gorgeous, so it kills me to see lesser artists propagating a more generic interpretation. Bleh.

And, for bonus fun, a neat comparison between the manga and Marvel Star Wars comics- a little unfair, I suppose, but fun to check out. :D
