Another GNK power droid joke… which was funnier in my head than it turned out to be. Oh well.
Character: Darth Vader
After looking at my previous (unfinished) drawing of Luke and the Emperor, with Vader looming nearby, I figured I needed to redo it.
This started out as a “dangit” for the Emperor, but Nooch had a better line. I like it.
I guess EA has a game called Galaxy of Heroes, and Nooch is running some kind of podcast about it. He asked if I could draw the game art.
I thought I’d try my hand at an iconic scene from The Empire Strikes Back, and this is definitely one of them. I’m pretty happy with how I drew the smoke, and pretty depressed about how I drew Vader.
My first double Dangit! I feel like both Vader and Luke were kind of unhappy about how this situation turned out.
This was actually going to be a Dangit comic, where Luke tries to slash Palpatine but is blocked by Vader. But once I drew the first panel, I realized the Emperor just looks like a happy guy having a chat. I couldn’t make it work.
I have no idea how to draw the Death Star explosion. But whatever it looked like, you can bet Darth Vader was unhappy about it.
After my first character sketch, I tossed another one to Nooch Dirk. This continued to prove that drawing Darth Vader is beyond my skill.
