Darth Vader - Luke Skywalker by JeffLafferty Darth Vader - Luke Skywalker by JeffLafferty
Title: Vader - Luke
Size: 5” x 3 1/2” inches - ACEO double sketch card
Medium: Acrylic and colored pencil on illustration board
Year: 2009
Buy a Limited Edition Print - Link

These cards where defiantly a challenge. Trying to figure out a way to make them both have separate stand alone images and yet still be connected was a real trick.

My idea behind whole design was to create something like a Chinese yin-yang symbol. With a bit of the dark on the good side and a bit of good on the dark side. (The small figure of Luke on Vader’s card and a tiny Vader on Luke’s Side)

I see what you did there with the yin-yang. And it's very, very effective. :D Not to mention a beautiful pair of paintings.
