I’ve done art based on the Dark Lord of the Sith from Star Wars before…but definitely not like this.
The first Darth Vader piece I created was Hello Kitty related. The second was a photo-realistic design based on one of the Ottawa members of the 501st Legion (Star Wars cosplayers that create incredible film-accurate costumes). This time however I wanted to do my own version.
Like a lot of people I enjoyed Rogue One. Like a lot of people I really enjoyed the sequence at the end of the film featuring Darth Vader. I set out to do a piece that paid homage to that scene, but with more colour.
Vader was done on 10×15 watercolour paper with pencil, watercolour pencils and light acrylic touches.
