Vader by JohnOsborne Vader by JohnOsborne
As a kid I was always interested in where Vader crash landed after A New Hope. Turns out he managed to make it to a planet called Vaal. After escaping the wreckage of his Tie Advanced he encountered a pack of alien hyenas, and after subduing their pack leader, he was accepted into their pack. He was soon picked up by Imperial forces. I had to paint the image of that really cool piece of Star Wars history, that personally I hadn't seen before.

This one took me about 10 hours all in all.  Thanks for looking!

Darth Vader's right leg is contorted awkwardly.

Thanks for the critique. You're right, still getting a hang of foreshortening haha.

Glad I could help. You did really good work on Vader's Helmet and chest plate. 🙂

has this nice The Force Unleashed-y feel about it
I think there's a huge lack of dynamic Vader art that captures him well when actually moving (as much as the concept of the character allows anyway), not just, you know, struggling to walk.

Exactly, You always see him either standing walking or chocking someone. I wanted him shown under a different light, some struggle, damaged, and pissed haha. Thanks for your comment!
