Damn, this is really good. Good job!
I like this, most people complain that this isn't intimidating. I say a guy that can choke you out without even touching you is pretty damn scary. The one problem i see with this is the fact that the glass would probably be suceptible to lightsaber strikes, or the force.
Desain looks fantastic!!
Is that Darth friggin Malgus? Badass
That is Dope!!!........really awesome
Somehow you made Vader ten times scarier!!
Reminds me of Shredder from TMNT. Nice work!
I am a huge Star Wars fan, especially of the original three, but I must say I do like this Vadar redesign. It reminds me of a mix between Darth Vadar and Darth Malek (from Star Wars: The Old Republic online pc game). Great job on this really impressive work.
Edit* Darth Malgus, my apologese not Darth Malek...
Awesome! I really love the design, but, and maybe this is just me being too accustomed to normal Vader, I'm not a big fan of his face being exposed like that- part of what made Vader so mysterious was that you could never see how his face truly looked, you'd just see his intimidating, soulless mask. you could never tell what he was thinking, and you never knew the extent of his injuries (of course, until that brief moment in Return of the Jedi). I understand what you were going for, though! he actually reminds me a lot of Bane....
Your techniques used in textures and materials are also outstanding here! I think that based on your older works that you keep improving greatly as you go on
I really Love that it still has the shape of his original helmat, this design also reminds me of Mr. Freeze and how they both need their suits to live great job! xx
He's almost as disturbing as the Quaker Oats guy!
Really nice, but didn't fit in George Lucas SW. He was too fixed on gods, myths and nationalism...
As good as this is, it isn't intimidating. What made Vader intimidating was that no one really knew who he was and you couldn't see an ounce of humanity.
I loved this the second I saw it!! Nice job!
the Light bounce, color and depth blurring is out of this world awesome...I love this so much!! Flawless and instant fav! Excellent take on the faceless terror of the Galaxy! Great use of noise too~
While the art is really cool you just cant take him seriously, you keep wanting to call him Darth Fishbowl...
If I remember, I believe this was what George Lucas envisioned for his first concept of Darth Vader.
damn that is sick, material painting is down solid, gj
very good redesign!
Definitely seen better.
Who is the man you used to make this?
This is amazng, though I must admit I dislike that you can see his face. Not being able to see the man beneath the armour helped build the impression that he was this unstoppable, domineering entity, so that when we *did* finally see him with his helmet off(in that healing-pod/meditation-chamber thing) it was a shocking reminder that there was a man beneath that imposing visage, and more than that, a heavily injured, broken one.
