Daily Deviation

Given 2010-12-17
The moment I saw -- Empire -- by *wyv1 I fell in love with the atmosphere and mood. It seems to me that Vader is trying to grasp something intangible with his hand. Perhaps something long lost? Whatever it is, I can't help but keep wondering. ( Featured by alexandrasalas )

I imagine this to go with a storyline where Anakin takes over Tatooine from the ground, rather than giving it the quick end of Alderaan.
Maybe it started as a one-man vendetta against the slavers, but is spiraled into a scorched earth campaign to decimate the entire planet.
I picture him emerging out of a sandstorm, his tattered cape billowing in shreds, his helmet scratched and dinged from scouring sands and blaster fire.
He boards his shuttle and takes the pilot seat. A hologram of the Emperor appears "What do you have to report, my dark pupil?"
He replies with the eerily flat confirmation "Mission complete, my master."
"Very well. Return to me. There are more worlds that need your attention."
As the shuttle flies away you get a view of the carnage on the ground. Whole patches of desert sand have been melted into charred, cracked glass. Jabba's palace teeters and burns on a crumbling cliffside.
Tatooine is a dead world forevermore.

Oh, Vader looks pissed.

Pretty awesome to be able to convey emotion when the subject has a mask on!

I like how this portrays a younger, more dynamic Darth Vader. Love the pose, the tones, and how accurate and deadly the mask looks. It's all very dramatic and fearsome.

Brilliant mate! I love the mood and atmosphere to this piece. Vader's posture is absolutely magnificent and the AT-AT and ST(i think that's what it is ^^) shows pure power of the scene. Wonderful job and again brilliant!

The problem, in my estimation, with most of the conceptions of Darth Vader (including Lucas' try) is that he is often to "bulk" or ungainly-looking to be totally fearsome. This picture, however, does a great job of making Vader look menacing without giving him the off-balance appearance. Good job.
