Darth vader

Everyone knows him, and whether they like him or hate him he's made the bad side super iconic. One of my earliest influences in art was Ralph McQuarrie, his pure imagination blew my mind at a young age. Trying to pay some design homage to him in this Vader piece.

Crisp lines and big dark inks can easily flatten and take the life and movement out of my pieces. I tried to be aware of that and make the form of Vader and the bolts as fluid and lively as possible.
