A very strong image. It captures that sense of Anakin/Vader from "Sith" to who he is in the original trilogy. A brooding portrait that skirts that beautiful line between cartoon (in the best sense) and reality.
Awesome take on Vader's scarred-up self --- "Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography, if you're lucky."- Alan Moore

This is awesome. I've never seen a scowl more deadly. If only Anakin was this badass in the prequels instead of 'woe is me, sand is itchy, why do people have to die?' Don't me started on his poor motivation for going evil!
Neither is this god awful cartoon show their airing. It makes me sad I liked the little mini series Gendy Tartakovsky did tho. In fact think the only Star Wars stuff I like is the shit George Lucas didn't have full command over.
Eh, the whole Clone Wars thing is iffy. I agree that her novels are good, but they still can't be canon, because they depend on the events of TPM and AOTC as being canon. I just say they're an alternate universe.
If only we could delete stuff from our brains like a bad line of code.
I like your unmasked version a bit better than the one we saw on film, more evil, less... ugly!
I'm not super knowledgeable about SW aside from what I saw on film, mostly the older ones (thankfully) but it seemed like Vader's age in Return of the Jedi doesn't quite match how he's portrayed in the new films... wouldn't he have to be like... 40 something? o.0
lol this isn't my deviation. I just commented on it.
And yeah Vader was in his mid 40s when RotJ happened. He just looks like crap because his skin is mostly scar tissue and he's been stewing in the suit for like 20 years. That things gotta smell too. I doubt the guy got many showers with that thing on XD
Oooh, awesome! This is certainly a different look at Vader. It's as if he could have survived RotJ and remained kicking butt. I really like the colors you've used for the scars and the way you've drawn the lips. ^_^
