Darth Vader by AndyFairhurst Darth Vader by AndyFairhurst
When I were a wee nipper I went to see Star Wars at the cinema ( yeah I am that old ) and, as with most people of my generation who first saw it, I was hooked ( although I am not an expert in the wider universe of SW... stopped with Return Of The Jedi with me really) The earliest I can remember drawing anything was drawing scenes from Star Wars, and in particular Darth Vader and his Tie Fighter. I know I am not alone in saying this, but I would credit Star Wars as being the reason I got into drawing. So this is a dedication to good old Darth :D

Thanks for looking

* I may try and do a tutorial on how to get that reflective smooth surface of the helmet at some point, as it is easier than it looks and can look really effective.

*added the codpiece. I intentionally left it out originally but it only served to make that belt look too high.

Sorry, watermark added due to art theft and prints being sold on ebay. I will try and get around to adding my own.

From what I have seen in the Clone Wars, he never died. He has some sort of spider leg contraption as his lower legs. I am sure someone who is more into the cartoons will be able to elaborate. I am hoping Boba Fett was spat out of the Sarlacc Pit too..alive!

Boba Fett should have died on endor in an epic fight with han solo, not in the Sarlacc pit

This is my absolute favorite Vader. No whips, flips, flames or go-faster stripes. The power is in his presence.
