Star Wars - Darth Vader

VaderDeathStar_GNREID.jpg, www.gnreid.co.ukI like to think of this as the 'Bah, I'll get you pesky kids yet' Darth Vader illustration, sure he's got the whole evil clenched fist thing going on but still he's got a bit of the 'why I ought ta' about it.

Everyone knows Vader was played by David Prowse and I guess most fans (or artists) would know that he was designed by Ralph McQuarrie, who produced so many designs for the original three films, but I guess only total fans or trivia geeks would know that artist Brian Muir sculpted the original helmet. Brian has been involved in loads of iconic film pieces in his time including help create the 'Space Jockey' in Alien and a certain Ark of the Covenant.
