Now this is something I'm SUPER pumped about. Star Wars was such an inspiration to me as a kid and I remember thinking time and time again "I wish I could do Star Wars art!". Well, whaddaya know. I get to do Star Wars art! Fantasy Flight Games is releasing their new Star Wars living card game soon and a couple of my cards were spoiled at the previews at GenCon. The first card I did for the game was none other than Darth Vader. I'm really humbled that my art director felt comfortable enough giving me the task to create art for the most badass sci-fi villain of all time. Rarely do we get to see Vader dealing with rebel scum in such a direct way, so I'm sure you can imagine how giddy I was when I got the initial prompt.

Wow... you really drew an art that inspired a scene in a future movie? Now that's an achievement.

Also, the severed arm OMG

Hahaha thanks! Probably won't ever know if it actually inspired it at all (I'm sure there's plenty of us out there who'd been waiting to see just this type of scene). But it was certainly a dream come true to see it up on the screen!

And I'm pretty sure Vader keeps a collection of hands on his wall in his castle. Maybe that'll be the subject for a future painting haha.

Oh man, this is so beautiful, he’s my favorite villain!
Looking at this wants me to go in there and serve beside him.

Haha thank you very much! Definitely better to be beside him in this case than in front of him!

Wait, this is the scene from Rogue One, but the art was posted in 2012.

The art was originally created for a Star Wars card game before Disney bought Lucasfilm. I have no idea whether or not it inspired that scene in Rogue One at all, but either way it was one of the most magical things I ever saw on the big screen haha.
