I was honoured to be asked to contribute a variant cover for Marvel's final issue of their Darth Vader comic series. This was the first time I did a published Star Wars illustration (not counting the endless amounts of unpublished X-wing fighters and Han Solos I drew as a kid). Marvel was very generous and gave me a lot of freedom with the art. In keeping with Lucasfilm's policy, I was asked to submit 2 different roughs which you can see below.
The final art was drawn in ink, coloured dyes and wax crayon, and was purchased by Lucasfilm for their Star Wars archives.
This was drawn in ink on board, with colours added digitally. You can check out the initial pencil rough below.
