Master Darth Vaderuki by CoranKizerStone Master Darth Vaderuki by CoranKizerStone
I've always loved that Darth Vaders outfit was inspired by Samurai gear. I thought I'd play with his original design and incorporate some of that samurai shit along with some stuff I just had fun popping in there. Had a dandy playing with this piece a little lot.

I have enjoyed your work so much in recent days. The 'childhood-gone-screwy' pieces are, in my opinion, amongst your best work. Samurai Vader though, is easily one of your best yet.

Domo arigato (as seems appropriate to say)

That's really great. I actually had no idea Darth's outfit was Samurai inpired, but it makes sense now that I know.

Great work!

Yea, this would have made Vader not look lame lol yes, yes, I know, lynch me for my blasphemy, but I've always thought Vader's design was weak. And when it stood against all the cool fresh designs from the new films, it looked even worse...but anyway awesome revamp ^__^

so if he's a Samurai, would that make the Emperor a Daimyo?

Yep..true. He's not supposed to be one though. I just added some samurai element is all.

well yeah, I just thought that was an interesting connection regardless.

because then the Rebel Alliance would be Ninjas, since they're at war with the establishment.

I believe the best artwork are the pieces that encourage you to spend time taking in all the little details.
That's especially difficult to do when you've got so much competition on this site.

But when I opened up my inbox I was instantly drawn to this picture.
I've seen a million drawings of Darth Vader, most of the time it's just flat black, boring.

That's not the case here, I love the subtle mixture of cool colours and that honeycomb texture is a nice touch.

My eyes are particularly drawn to that arm. I don't know why but it just looks so good.

Thanks so much. Forgot to mention that this was an attempt at speed painting as well so I'm glad that you and others are pleased with it. Makes me want to do lots more. lol!
