“Dark, imposing, fear-inducing and fancy headwear are the things that define Darth Vader for me visually and I tried to keep those four things in my design. I show the top of his head so he doesn’t come across as a full robot but kept the breathing mask thingy that is so iconic of the character. I really like how this turned out and I love doing shiny, reflective stuff. Unlike, say, human skin, you don’t have to worry about subtlety when you’re doing something like metal.”
"I went with some other dark colours that, should you see him in the shadows, would most definitely blend in, but if you caught him in the light, you'd see your own blood on his hands, and tears pooling around his boots."
