Women of Star Wars is a brand new line of Star Wars trading cards from Topps that celebrates the women of this brilliant universe. From the female characters themselves to the women that portray them, there is a very deep list to draw from in this set.
This is another Star Wars set where I could draw from characters across the movies and TV shows (see 2018 Star Wars Masterwork for another set), and for the first time that included The Mandalorian. I drew many of my favourite characters like Ahsoka, Sabine, & Jynn Erso, but also focused on a few amazing Mandalorian characters who were played by actresses that I adore from other shows.
Ming-Na Wen is an actress known for her voice acting of Mulan in Mulan, Agent May in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, and the critically acclaimed role of June in The Joy Luck Club. Ming-Na also recently joined the Star Wars universe when she played Fennec Shand in the Mandalorian, which placed a coveted third jewel in her Disney crown as she has now been a Disney princess, a Marvel super-hero, and a character in the Star Wars universe!
Who are some of your favourite characters from The Mandalorian and do you have a favourite role that Ming-Na Wen has played?
Booklet Sketch Card
In addition to the regular sketch cards I drew for this project were booklet sketch cards. These had the dimensions of two regular sketch cards that were joined in the middle and folded like a book. Two of the booklets I drew were inserted into the packs and one was kept as an artist proof!
Below is the booklet artist proof I retained for sale. Featuring one of my favourite Star Wars characters, Ahsoka, fighting the Seventh Sister in Star Wars: Rebels.
Regular sketch cards
I went back and forth between using gouache and copics & inks on this project’s artwork. I also created an arrow like design to go behind some of the portraits, as seen in the orange shape behind Enfys Nest below.
Comment below with what your favourite of the mediums that I used and what you think of the orange arrow design I used.
