Darth Vader by Hideyoshi Darth Vader by Hideyoshi
So I asked you guys what to paint in terms of fanart/redesigns
and I chose one of the most iconic evil guys :)
I'll try to pick up some more of the suggestions though. Thanks again, folks!

I ended up sticking to the original design mostly although I had started out with plans to make it a redesign. So it resulted in this weird mix. Ah, whatever.

1.5h, it's been a while since I made a speedpainting...
it's clearly not the best I could do. Careless planning without concept.

Lol, maybe this will get me hired to work on some SW property again :P (not really)

copyright Lucasarts

edit: not sure how he looked feminine (I must have been drawing one too many girls), but I made some tweaks, also changed the helmet which I realized was really off after I checked some ref.

This is a really interesting redesign of Darth Vader. More modern and athletic. Well done.

That's how the transformation from Anakin to Vader should have happened. Well done.

Thinking about 'Carrie' the mid70s movie adaptation of Stephen King's novel. Honestly, with all of the problems with the prequels, in a major overhaul and a 'should have...' moment, Anakin/Vader should have carried on mayhem as 'Carrie', only he was going for the attempt to divorce his Jedi beliefs and try to embrace the dark side in that disastrous bargain he made with the main devil man....your work makes me think this.

I can see he's changed since the last time I saw him, I think... But can you show the previous version. Would be interesting to compare.
Btw the copyright belongs to Lucasfilm Ltd. Lucasarts only deals with the games of Lucasfilm.

It looks great, fantastic design. One thing though. I like sleek, but I don't think it works on Vader so I would have had him a little bulkier after all he's wearing an armor.

The best redesign is where you don't notice they're redesigned, but they fit a new world better.
