A few months back, FFG announced the end to their long-running Star Wars: The Card Game. This illustration based on the confrontation in the "Vader Down" comic was chosen as a tournament prize card and is the last Darth Vader card released for the game. Interestingly enough, I also created the artwork for the very first Darth Vader card in the game, and it also features Vader filling a lot of Rebel body bags. Who would have guessed that the entire card game would be book-ended by my two violent Vaders!

Unfortunately no, I'm restricted from making prints of most of my Star Wars work due to copyrights.

Welcome. The dynamics and drama are great, very evocative of that moment in the Rebels head of "Why did I take this job again?". Plus the focus and focal length are real cinematic. Diggin the brush strokes on Vader's helmet.
