Last week, over at the RBMC blog [link]
instead of drawing our planed weekly topic, we chose to honor the art of legendary concept painter Ralph McQuarrie. So I drew Darth Vader, but instead of using the final film design of Darth, I tried to emulate some of McQuarrie's earlier concept paintings, with more of an elongated mouth area and larger samurai like helmet.
Head on over to the RBMC blog to check out all of the other awesome tribute art produced in honor of Ralph McQuarrie.
I haven't drawn Darth Vader in what seem like 10 years, so this was really fun to do.
