Here is my favorite character of Star Wars.... Darth Vader. I drew out Vader in ink, scanned into the computer. I did all the shading, blending, blurring and highlights in Photoshop. A long ways from the crappy 1st drawing I did of Vader when I was only 11 years old!
Vader... the one image that haunted me as a kid, so much that I wanted to draw his helmet. I couldn't draw back in 1977. I sat down and practiced trying to draw Vader for many months, until I was able to draw a helmet. If it hadn't been for Vader, I never would have learned to draw or do any kind of art at all!
A tribute to George Lucas and his Star Wars legacy...
