Excellent!

I like to think the Empire would be a fusion of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.

The Rebels, meanwhile, would be a combination of the four Allied powers: Britain (and the Commonwealth), the USA, the USSR and Nationalist China. Which would be interesting to see.

Did you watch the old serial Devil Dogs and look at the villain The Lightning? He was the basis for Vader

I think I read somewhere that Vader, the storm troopers, and the Empire were inspired by WW2 Nazi Germans.

Obviously German inspired, but I'm feeling some Imperial Japanese going on with the presence of the sword (especially the scabbard).

yes the sword is something out of imagination..the cross guard is european inspired, while the blade looks like from a katana

Maybe it`s just me, since I dont know much about proportions but... I think his legs are a bit short, he looks small, but.. what do I know?

:icongiorgiobaroni:
giorgiobaroni Featured By Owner May 20, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
really?
uhm i swear i checked for proportions in the sketch phase..maybe it's just the helmet too big?

Joey-Space Featured By Owner May 20, 2015  Student General Artist
It could be that the helmet is a bit too big, but.. It`s just a matter of personal visualizacion, for me it would look better if the  legs were a bit longer, I`m not saying its incorrect what you`ve done especially since you checked proportions. Don`t mind me, fantastic work.

Its partly the helmet, coat, and angle. The coat and angle make it hard to see his exactly where his crotch is which helps to determine leg length. Also the helmet is properly proportioned to fit around his head which ends up making it look bigger than it should.

It's not what if, the Empire in Star Wars is an allegory of the 3rd Reich.
