The use of the light is so beautiful.. I really like the way you express his feelings. Even through the mask , we know that he's grieving. Every detail is absolutely perfect! Stunning!

Everytime I see this image something hurts so much inside of me, cause is something that I'm sure he would do obviously, I love how you make his expression so sad. This is, definitely, one of my favourite art from Star Wars.

I always thought someone should write a fanfiction where his ashes are moved from the funeral pyre on Endor, and interred next to Padme. :)

Aww, that's sweet. I was thinking about how even though it's Jedi tradition to burn the body of a dead Jedi (kind of like the Vikings) that I'm sure that Anakin/Vader would rather have been buried with/next to Padme.

Palpatine on a listening com: Have you mercilessly kicked those Gungans for the sake of my pettiness and bullied the citizens of the Naboo yet?
Vader: Yes master...
Palpatine: And make sure to have our men trash that stupid woman's grave, write democracy  is dead on it!
Vader: NOOO (turns off the com)

That's just mean, but then again the man's a total psychopath; he had no problems torturing and trying to kill Vader's son in front him so disrespecting his wife's grave wouldn't surprise me.

traducelo:

imaginen entonces un remake donde profundicen a darth vader con la historia de padme donde viva traumas y el pasado. aunque eso le quitaría lo misterioso a darth vader, lo cual lo hacía cool.

Poor Vader scarred for life, Episode Three is the saddest Star Wars Film

I hope an imperial officer doesn't interrupt his mourning...

Young Imperial Officer: Lord Vader! You're needed on the Devestator's bridge! Wait...why are you in this tomb?

This is so moving and sad. Vader is often shown as more machine but this shows a part of him is still human and feels the pain of being without Padme. I like to think that they've been reunited in the afterlife.

Proof that Vader hasn't 'completely' given to the Dark Side.

How can he be in total darkness..when he still feels the Light of Love?
