Abandoned Rebel Base - Crait concept 02

Inspiration: Abandoned Rebel Base

I might have mentioned that I’m a Star Wars fan. If you know me at all, it won’t take long for to bring up Star Wars and get your take on it. Can we be friends if you don’t like Star Wars? Or if you

Inspiration: Anime Super Heroine

Don’t go nuts and don’t take that title over-literally. At least not if it would compel you to try and burn my house down for calling the images I’m posting here as an “anime super heroine”. When I think of anime, factors like style and
