WIP Emperor Palpatine by mayorlight WIP Emperor Palpatine by mayorlight
This past Star Wars Day (May the 4th), I decided to take a break from FF XIII try my hand at drawing some Star Wars characters. First up was Mr. Sith schemer himself, Emperor Palpatine.

This is my first time to EVER draw Palpatine. Instead of trying to recreate Ian McDiarmid's visage, I referenced his appearance in the The Force Unleashed graphic novel. I might have taken some liberties with his outfit, since most of the time his hooded robe is (befittingly) depicted as a mass of black.

One of the few times I've even drawn an aged character. I was especially pleased with how his face and hand turned out. I left the upper portion of his forehead blank since it will likely be shaded when I color this.

Wow, well done. You depicted his age/creepiness pretty well.
