A BIG SPOILER WARNING for those who have not read as far as the Star Wars novel "Legacy of the Force: Fury"--this illustration is from that book. It's a scene I just had to draw because, for once, Han and Leia Solo had something wonderful happen in their lives, and it was so good to imagine their happy faces...
To set the scene, an exerpt from that book:
"In the Millennium Falcon's main hold, which had mostly served as a crew lounge for most of the years Han had owned the freighter, Leia and Han sat Allana down on the sofa and bent to face her more at eye level.
"We're going to take you back to Hapes now," Leia said. Seeing Allana up close for so long, it was hard for her to concentrate. The little girl was so familiar, staring up at her with eyes Leia knew so well.
The realization of where she knew Allana from was like rising from a pool after too long underwater. Suddenly Leia could breathe again, could think again. Allana had Tenel Ka's coloration--the fair skin, red hair, gray eyes--but her face, her expressions, her lively intelligence, were so like his when he was a child, before Yuuzhan Vong and voxyn and Vergere and who-knows-what twisted all the happiness out of his life. Leia found she could not speak.
But Allana wiggled, happy. "You're Leia Organa Solo."
Leia nodded, mute.
"You're Jacen's mommy."
Leia nodded again.
"He's my daddy."
Finally Leia found her voice again. "I know," she whispered.
She knelt and pulled Allana to her in an embrace. She stood with the little girl in her arms. "I'm your grandmother."
