Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader by wraithdt Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader by wraithdt
Hi guys! This is a new set of 12 artworks I did for the new Star Wars Essential Reader's Companion. Although the dateline for this book was a lot tighter it nevertheless was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

As with the last book I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the Reader's Companion. Enjoy!

This next scene is from Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader. Vader and his 501st Legion battles Wookies and Jedis Siadem Forte and Iwo Kulka and just plain being a badass!

You know what amazes me how much of an incredible dish he became I mean seriously he was such a good person at first but then palpatine had to step in and screw that up oh well what's done is done and at least he redeemed himself in the end right

Little does he know that he has two daughter kittens, that were hidden from him. Elsa was taken to Tatooine, while Allana was taken to Alderaan!

i remember this scene from the book and i thought it was great, especially the moment where his grasp of the dark side of the force allows him to transcend being stuck in that armor. it's great seeing him in control of things that are initially restrictive to him. glad you rendered this scene!

I wonder if there are any in the storm troopers just lingering in the back and watching Vader. Just talking to each other like: "This new guy is a badass!" "Yeah but he has to focus too much on breathing." "HE IS KILLING TWO JEDI AT ONCE!"

I love the composition, the pic is powerful, but to my mind you should rework Darth Vader's helmet. It looks to bright and may be it doesn't matches the original design.

I can't tell you how amazed I was by Rise of Vader.
It tells a compelling and believable story of how Vader went from the poor S.O.B he was at the end of Revenge of the Sith to the walking nightmare he was in A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back.

It also fits in well with the Force Unleashed novel

One of my favorite Star Wars novels. It actually felt like a page out of the Originals than the Prequels - which I thought were alright. Luceno's writing is just great.
