    OMG what an amazing piece! I was hoping one of us here on the forum would get this scene illustrated. This is my favorite scene from my favorite book in this series. Awesome Job FF!

    Just lovely to see those well known characters older and after all that has been happening cherishing a happy moment.

    Great work=D==D=

    That's wonderful!! I love that scene and you did it very well. I think you did Leia's face very nicely.

    Woah! :eek:

    You continue to impress me with your skill and make me wish I could draw. :p I love that scene (even though I've only read about it, having never gotten my hands on a copy of LotF: Fury) and you've rendered it beautifully. I'm not sure why you don't think you can't draw Leia's face, you've done a wonderful job! :D Especially in making her look like Leia even though she's quite a bit older than she appears in the films. ;)

    I wish we could see Allana's face. She's such a cutie. [face_love] But this is a beautiful pose. Wonderful job, Deb! =D=

    Oh, I'm so glad this piece resonates with everyone! :D Thanks to everyone that's been in to check it out and to comment! [:D]

    TheOnlyJediPrincess--Aw, thanks! [face_blush] I'm so glad this piece seems to fit the narrative for you! Your own illustration of this scene would be so awesome--you really should have a go! We'd all love to see it, I know (me especially!)! Thank you so much for taking time to look and comment!

    Chimpo_the_Sith--Thanks so much--I'm so glad you like it! I suppose this was a moment that just needed to be "seen," at least by me--if it works for others, that's just a gift for me! :D Thanks again!

    earlybird-obi-wan--Many thanks, my friend--and yes, it IS good to see Han and Leia happy, isn't it? Even if just for a moment--it's good to see it! I'm glad you liked it!

    NYCitygurl wrote: "I love that scene and you did it very well." That's the best thing I could hear--thank you so much! If it does the narrative from the novel justice, I'm glad! Many thanks!

    Hi Idrelle! [:D] Thanks so much for dropping back in--I so appreciate your continued support, and I'm so glad you like this piece! As to Leia's likeness--I was working from several pictures of Carrie, one younger (for the lighting) and two from more recent photo ops, to capture some of the maturity in her face now. It definitely looked more like Carrie before I started shading--that often happens! [face_frustrated] Regardless, if it looks enough like Leia to pass for her, I'm happy! As to little Allana's face, maybe I'll have to try drawing the Chume'da again sometime--perhaps the upcoming "Millenium Falcon" novel will present me with some scenes to work from! ;)

    I meant to add, when I initially posted this drawing, that credits go to our erstwile moderator, HanSolo29, who was a generous sounding board for me on the rough sketch--her assistance was invaluable and is greatly appreciated! :D

    Many thanks, too, to all who've been in to look! I always hope my illustrations will serve the stories--it's wonderful to hear that this one does! [:D][:D]

    You're welcome! [:D] I get tons of feedback and support as an author, so I know how important it is for artists! [:D] I'm sure the new EU book will give you loads of ideas to draw from. ;) I can't wait to see your next piece. :)

    As I said to you via PM, this piece is absolutely wonderful! There's not enough H/L artwork out there and especially in this time period! You captured the essence of the scene perfectly and there's no doubts in my mind who they're supposed to be. Great job with the details and really fleshing out that background. That's something that's often forgotten after the main subject matter is completed, but you kept on trucking with this thing! There's really not that much more to say except, I love it! :D

    A very touching picture from a pretty awful book! I think Leia's face looks fine, but I'm seeing a little more of Luke in Han's face than I should be. Still, don't think it's not an excellent piece. The facial expressions are great, and the rendering of the Falcon interior is spot on! And I look forward to your PM whenever you have some time to chat to me about it.

    Hello again, Mme. Moderator/Blossoming Sketch Card Artiste! Most sincere thanks, as I said, for your kind assistance in bringing this one about--your generous feedback and critique are always invaluable, and so very much appreciated! [:D] The background seemed necessary for this one, especially since the scene was set aboard the beloved 'Falcon--if taken from the detailed narrative, they're all facing the wrong way here...but I wanted to leave no doubt where they actually were; the circular corridor into the lounge is so recognizable, I thought it would work best! Thanks again, for your help and for the kind comments here!

    Hi Giolon! Thanks for having a look!
    "I'm seeing a little more of Luke in Han's face than I should be."

    Hmm--perhaps it's the hair...? I tried to keep as much to Harrison's face as I could (I did use a number of different photos, though, and tried to alter expression as well... **shrug**)--trying to both age and "emote" from a photo that provides neither can be a challenge and a half! I'm glad Leia at least resembles Leia! And I've sent off that PM--thanks!

    Serena! [:D] Thanks so much for taking time to drop in and comment! I so hoped Leia's happiness would come across here--again, trying to get that from a photo of Carrie that was purely posed presented a challenge!--thanks for sharing that it did! I re-read that scene at least ten times while drawing this, just to keep that emotion in my mind while working--I guess it worked! :p Thanks again for taking a look!


    I'm heading out of town for the weekend, so won't be able to get in to say thanks--so in advance: THANKS! to all that drop in and visit--it's so very much appreciated! [:D]

    Oh my gosh... FF that's incredible! One of my favourite scenes and your drawing is so touching. I can see the adoration in leia's face clearly. Beautiful drawing [face_love] I love it so much!

    Hello Kiyuuchan (aka Glitbiter!)! Thanks for taking time to have a look, and for the kind comments--so glad you like it! This, like so many of the illustrations from the books, was just a moment I myself needed to SEE (it was my own favorite scene from Fury)--and I'm so glad that the emotions come through! Thank you again!

    Obi-Dawn!!! **Wookiee-glomps** How the heck are you, Jedi-Mom?! I hope all is well with you and yours (and you must be looking forward to Halloween this year, yes? Costumes for your little Jedi as well as yourself...? ;) :D)! Thank you SO much for dropping in--it really means a lot! [:D]

    Thank you again, all, for taking time to drop in and look--it really means a lot! :D [:D]

    ROFL! [face_laugh] [face_laugh] Perhaps so, my friend! Still--it'd be a bit non-sequitor to have Leia stating she's a grandmother if she still looked as she did in ANH! ;) :p I hope the way I aged her isn't too jarring--I tried to keep pretty much to where Carrie is actually sporting some lines now... Thank you for taking a look--I'm glad you like it! :D

    Shame on me for missing an update of yours. Likeness, shmikeness, it's still a great piece. These people deserve to be captured in a happy moment after all that's happened to them.

    And congrats on hitting 100 pages for your thread!

    Hi BF!!! [:D] Been wondering where you've been hiding (or are you just getting ready for Halloween...[face_pumpkin]...by the look of your current icon...? ;) :p )! Many thanks for having a look at the latest--and I have a question for you via PM... :D

    Just saw your Grandparents piece.... I remember that scene, you captured wonderfully well. What a touching moment, and we don't often see Leia so tender... You got Han likeness extremely well Falcon! =D= And you got Leia's eyes so very, very well!! What a sweet moment to capture... Bravo...:)
