Even though this is fanart, I thought I should post it here. I don't feel that fanart of live-action shows or books is the same as fanart of animated series. When dealing with live-action shows, you have to pick a graphic style. Even more so with books, since you often have to completely design the character's image from a description in text.
Star Wars is also a special exception... George Lucas is very generous with the use of his material, and many respected professional artists make a living selling (licensed) Star Wars fan art.

This is definitely in my top 10 favorite pieces that I've ever made. I spent months on it. I used Corel Painter Essentials 4. It's technically 27x32" but I've never printed it that large lol.
