More Vader redesigns have come in, and now they're being passed on to you!
"I just tried to go simple and fun without losing any of the recognizable aspects of the character. Ultimately, I still aimed for the evil spacesuit samurai the films had in the core design. The whole thing probably fits better into a cartoon universe, but I thought the addition of a bubble helmet and a bigger blade on the lightsaber was different enough to set it apart. Also felt a jacket similar to those samurai generals wore was a fine (and more manageable, since he can take it off before a fight) substitute for the cape."
"I wanted to keep the same basic silhouette as the classic costume. I used more angles and tones just to make the art read more clearly. The helmet has almost a skull face to really get that bad guy vibe across. I kept the cloth bits because they scream Vader to me."
