Deathstar Reflections by WiL-Woods Deathstar Reflections by WiL-Woods
Darth Vader showing a rarely seen somber moment of grief as he pauses to mourn the loss of the troops that he lost in the destruction of the 1st Deathstar.


This is a piece I did to premier at the Cape Girardeau Comic Con in Cape Girardeau Missouri. It is an homage of sorts to both Lee Teter's "Vietnam Reflections" [link] and to Star Wars.

I wanted to do a Star Wars piece that would stand out from the crowd a bit, so I thought a more somber and emotional piece would be a great contrast to the usual action works that you see. Written in Aurabesh on the memorial wall are the names of family, friends, and loved ones that I and some of my closest friends have lost.

I really love this piece, but I have to ask, does Vader's sympathy also go out to all the Imperials he "force choked" to death while under his command?

I love the pic , it's really beautiful , and sad :)

I doubt Vader felt sad a single second for all those guys he failed to protect but still , nice job :D

Great painting.
So, in addition to everything else, survivor's guilt?
PS: I can see how useful a guide droid would be to find 
your way around the DeathStar, but how did that one survive?
