Fear and Dead Men

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!

Funfact: The reason why Palpatine and the Sith hate and want to destroy the Jedi is because the Jedi orchestrated the "Sith Holocaust" Where the Jedi attempted to exterminate the entire Sith race! Hence the title "Revenge of the Sith" because Palpatine wants to avenge the billions upon billions of unarmed innocent Sith that were slaughtered and butchered by the hypocritical Jedi Scum! The Sith Holocaust was the event that fueled Palpatine's hatred and vengeance towards the Jedi!!! Palpatine would request the creation of the Clone armies and the protocol Clone Order 66 to avenge the once proud race who became victims of genocide by the Jedi and the Republic!!! The Sith Holocaust resulted in billions upon billions of innocent unarmed Sith being slaughtered and exterminated to the brink of extinction! While the Jedi Purge or Clone order 66 resulted in only thousands dead!!! Tell me everyone who is more evil!? Palpatine and the Sith who were persecuted and forced by the Jedi and fought a war driven by hatred and revenge for the Holocaust or the Jedi who continue to ravage the lives of countless species across the Galaxy!? Let us never forget that the Jedi also commanded armies of clone slaves and sent them to die in the worst battles and wars losing blood, limb, and their souls!!! #SithLivesMatter #CloneLivesMatter #TheSithHolocaust #RevengeToTheFallen

Is there an art print of this available.

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.
