Here is my favorite character of Star Wars.... Darth Vader. I drew out Vader in ink, scanned into the computer. I did all the shading, blending, blurring and highlights in Photoshop. A long ways from the crappy 1st drawing I did of Vader when I was only 11 years old!

Vader... the one image that haunted me as a kid, so much that I wanted to draw his helmet. I couldn't draw back in 1977. I sat down and practiced trying to draw Vader for many months, until I was able to draw a helmet. If it hadn't been for Vader, I never would have learned to draw or do any kind of art at all!

A tribute to George Lucas and his Star Wars legacy...

Can I use this for a candle label design? I'll send you a link when I get the Etsy store up and running.

Amazing drawing! I'm trying to draw Vader, but I've spent the past 3 days trying to get the face right. It's a real bitch to draw :)

*Rubs his helmet.* It's so shinny~ :iconimhappyplz:

This is amazing, I love all the detail in in. It's great, considering only a few colours were used.

You rock <3
