So I’m back — not sure where I went for a week, but I did do some arts. Forgive the quality in them, my camera hates me. MILD SPOILERS FOR THE LAST JEDI AHEAD! I’M WARNING YOU NOW! I MIGHT DISCUSS SOME OF THE SPOILER-Y THINGS!!! WATCH YOURSELF!!! OKAY? You’ve been warned. . .
“Rey in the Rain”: You know that part where Rey is under the Falcon, just before she sees Kylo? That was probably my favorite part of the entire movie. Simply because of her little smile and general content and happy spirit while being soaked. Holding her hand out to catch a stream of water, grinning at the crashing wave spilling onto her, she’s so sweet! I gave her a little flower headband and bracelet, just cuz all the Ahch-to flowers are pretties. I loved doing the poncho. And the wraps. And basically anything that flapped in the wind. I ended up doing an entire page of Rey doing many many many dance moves just because I wanted to practice the flowing wraps that she has.
“Star Wars Girls”: Unfortunately I forgot to put in Jess and Kaydel. Probably because every time I’ve drawn them no one knew who they were. Eh. But these are my favorite girls. From left to right, starting at the bottom, Barriss Offee, Sabine Wren, Leia Organa, Rose Tico, Hera Syndulla, and Ahsoka Tano. Sabine goes at the front (lowest down) b’cuz she’s my favorite. Barriss goes beside her because before I saw Rebels, she was my favorite. I call her Offee because I didn’t like calling her Barriss back when I was young. Of course, I didn’t know then she betrayed Soki. Nope. I had seen ONE episode of Clone Wars, so I had no clue what she was even like beyond what the Lego Star Wars video game portrayed her as. Say, unless I’m spelling it wrong, Offee is “Coffee” without the “C” xD Everybody loves Leia, and I’m not really an exception. While she was never my absolute favorite, she’s still special to me, and there’s never been anyone else like her. Next up, the galaxy’s newest hero, Rose Tico. First off, her name. Seriously. Like Tico as in Dora the Explorer’s Tico??? And Rose isn’t technically a very swarzy name. But that aside, Rose is my favorite non-animated character. She’s sweet, a lil bit sassy, can fend for herself, cares for others, plus she can stun Finn where he can’t even feel his teeth. That moment was priceless. Something along the lines of ‘yeah, they can track us through hyperspa- what did you hit me with I can’t feel my TEETH!’ Oh yeah, points to Finn for just being goofy. Goodness, this is getting long. Hera was at first my favorite Rebels character. I’m not sure when it was that I officially chose Sabine for that spot, but I think it was sometime after the first and second seasons. For two years, I drew Hera on almost every piece of paper I touched. Sketchbooks, notes, notepads, scraps of paper leftover from patterns, BUT NOT BOOKS — almost everything. I still love her, just not as much as little Mango. And finally, finally, Ahsoka. The star of Star Wars fandoms. The much-beloved heroine to girls everywhere. And the only one who can call Anikan names and get away with it. Skyguy and Snips forever.
I fell in love with the space horses. They’re so sweet, with their enormous ears and big shining eyes. Finn told Rose to stop enjoying being around them. I don’t listen to Finn when he’s bossy. I’d enjoy being around a Fathier. Wouldn’t you?
