A friend sent me a Star Wars illustration book for Christmas. I looked at all the various paintings in wide-eyed amazement. All their different styles, and examined how these professionals deal with their artworks. Having 2 years of uneducated experience in painting myself now, I decided to take my digital art to the next level. So I bought myself a graphics tablet. This is my first effort with it. Took a few days, but I wanted to finish up the year with something like this.
I opted for Vader on Hoth, the ESB scene where he decides to do all the dirty work for himself, because his incompetent henchmen and pawns didn't cut the mustard.
