Vader's Justice by JakeMurray Vader's Justice by JakeMurray
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.

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.

Yes, it was excellent. Especially that epic cameo in the end. (I dare not mention it as I might spoil it for people) It's a shame that it didn't do well at the box office. Star Wars fans are never happy.

I can understand people having their own informed opinions.  I am just sad that so many people didn't even give it a fair chance. :(

Well done, For me the best part of Rogue One was the end there when Vader boarded the rebel ship like an unstoppable force of nature.

Oh f*ck. That's the best representation of Vader's rampage at the end of Rogue One I ever seen. Somehow makes it even more awesome than the already fear-inducing movie sequence.
