Always loved this design from ESB.
I am going to be very sad when James Earl Jones dies.
tragic yet beautiful
Beautifully captures Vaders tormented soul
EXCELENT! Very McQuarrie!
I love the colors, the tone, the impression. (And your chouce of scene, too!)
A shame we never got to see the front of Vader/Anakin till ROTJ, but you've captured the look of the scene very nicely. Beautiful work.
Now that's damn cool.
Always love your lighting ... looks like a matte finish ... Like this is a photo taken with low iso settings
I always liked Vader's mediation chamber, too, and always longed for a closer look. From what I see here, it represents yet another layer of armor cutting Vader off from everyone else. The white light here makes me think "clinical." I expect to smell antiseptics when I'm present. Great work!
Yeah, I think that's definitely what they were after! And it definitely does have that sterile, cold feeling to it. And thanks!
I've never been able to think of Darth Vader without his helmet. To me, that skull-like breath mask is his face. When Luke removed Vader's helmet in "Return of the Jedi," he ceased being Lord Vader and became Anakin Skywalker again. I've heard the same said about Boba Fett. Exactly what he would look like without the helmet doesn't matter because that helmet is his face. Without it, he's not complete, not Boba Fett. I think the same can be said for Vader.
This is just awesome.
Darth Vader still 1#
