DARTH VADER (STAR WARS)

This was a rather daunting task. How does one alter Darth Vader's appearance while still having the concept be recognizable? I think the key is in the silhouette. I wanted the faceplate to be insect-like and asymmetrical. The design is sort of a stripped-down version of the suit we know. In fact, I sort of view this version as the suit that Anakin's burned body was put into before the final suit he all know as Vader. I even made sure to leave evidence of his wounds with the one bandaged arm.
