star wars - dead star dragon by shorelle star wars - dead star dragon by shorelle
"I am Darth Vader, he said within himself; as he ground the dragon’s corpse to dust beneath his mental heel, as he watched the dragon’s dust and ashes scatter before the blast from his furnace heart, and you—

You are nothing at all.

He had become, finally, what they all called him.

The Hero With No Fear.
"

—from the ROTS novelisation by Matthew Stover


=====

Anakin/Vader and his metaphorical dead star dragon, because I still have a lot of feelings from the ROTS novel. I... have no idea how to draw a space-y dragon, but this scene was really powerful and I've wanted to try drawing something from it for a while... (try being the operative word!)

Coincidentally, The Dragon is also one of my favourite TV Tropes, and it fits Vader to a T. :)

All references to that novel are instant win IMO. I love that book so much and that scene is so awesome.
And then you come along and make a fanart that matches this awesomeness. Thank you!

Your art is amazing!  One of the most original Anakin/Vader artworks I've seen at DA (and hey, I've seen a lot).
