Why this piece is awesome: I had intended for all my recs this month to be Rey, but with the news of Carrie Fisher's passing, I knew I had to honor her. There have been dozens of tribute arts posted already, and this is one of my favorites. It's Leia as both princess and general, power and beauty together. The artist really captured Leia's determination and strength. From the young princess with a blaster to the elder general, she's always Leia.

Why this piece is awesome: The stars behind Rey form a wonderful, thematic backdrop for this more-stylized artwork. I like the strong pose and of course the iconic triple bun, but what I like most about this is Rey's expression. The determination and ferocity in her eyes says this is a future leader here.

Why this piece is awesome: I tend to favorite just about anything that's fanart in a nouveau style, and this is no exception. The colors in this are wonderful - the sands and browns with the reminder of Jakku, and that touch of green is the perfect addition. I especially love the little Falcons forming the border behind Rey.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the little smile on Rey's face. I can imagine her humming to herself as she puts those iconic buns into Chewie's hair. His expression is a mixture of several different emotions, but I think "affectionate resignation" is about the right description. This is one time where the Wookiee doesn't get to win.

Why this piece is awesome: A very different take on Yoda, and I love it. In this he's ripped and feisty and it's a great reminder that before he was a chilled-out hermit he was a Jedi warrior. Sock it to those Sith, Yoda! (enlarge it to see every hair on his head)

Why this piece is awesome: Tentacles!! Fangs!! This is such a great dramatic piece, and the colours are gorgeous. I love the contrasting red glow, the cool blue-greens and the foreground purples, the perspective showing how trapped they are in the depths of the compactor, and the thick, muscular tentacles of the monster - especially the tentacle just starting to wrap around Chewy. A lot of this artist's work is professional, but this is one of a number of fanart pieces he's made. Enlarge for full scariness!

Why this piece is awesome: This is breathtaking photorealistic pencil work. It's taken from a photo reference (here - Daisy Ridley) and is almost a perfect representation. There's a WIP vid link at the DA post where you can see that yes, this absolutely is a drawing not a manip or something. You might say: what's the point? Why not just have the photo? I love more abstract and less directly respresentational art as well, but it's the extraordinary technical skill that gets me with this kind of work. Really, this is virtuoso photorealism. Amazing work - make sure to enlarge it.
(Also I was debating whether to include TFA works this month, but have decided to, as long as they're not spoilery. It is, of course, where a lot of the SW energy is right now.)

Why this piece is awesome: Oops, momentary lapse there with the Star Trek rec (more coffee needed!) - I'm actually supposed to be reccing Star Wars this month. It's like John and Rodney got in my brain and started arguing.
Anyway - to make up, this is a gorgeous piece with Han and Lando both young and looking very fit, probably up to no good at all. I love their expressions, Han's 'experimental' hair, and the warm colours - it's just a wonderful artwork.

Why this piece is awesome: The whole series 'Adventures in Time' by this artist is wonderful but this is one of my absolute favourites. I love the way the artist has captured the light and colouring and mood of the scene on Tatooine. The two suns sinking into the desert horizon, the luminosity of the sky, Luke standing on the crater rim. The TARDIS out in the desert fits so perfectly into the scene you hardly notice it's there.

Why this piece is awesome: I like minimalist poster and book design, and with these I'd have recognized most of the places even without the text, so I think they were successful to reduce planets to a core symbolism.

Why this piece is awesome: Star Wars space craft in steampunk style! And being rendered in LEGO makes them extra charming, because you wouldn't think bright plastic bricks a "steampunkish" material, but LEGO totally works here. There was a whole contest with this theme on the Bricks to Bothans forum, a place dedicated just to LEGO Star Wars. You can look at many awesome entries in that thread (though unfortunately some photos don't work anymore because this was a few years ago), but this Naboo fighter was the winner, and deserved it too. I love all the detail that went into it.

Why this piece is awesome: Most people have probably already seen these, because it's been widely linked, but I often miss such things myself, so maybe others haven't seen this artist. This fusion of Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh is very charming and sweet. This mix had never occurred to me as possibility, but once I've seen the cute Chrisolo Robin and Wookiee The Chew it seemed such an obvious fit. This art just makes you happier when looking at it. (Many of the other pieces on the website as well, it is very aptly titled as "relentlessly cheerful art".)
