Since he can't have a mask, how about some kind of "normal" breathing apparatus, like an asthma bomb or puffer; or those little portable oxigen medical tanks?

i thought about the tanks, kind an tribute to Blue Velvet, but I thought it made him look too feeble

Maybe he could wear an oxygen mask, when resting, but goes without when he is out working.

I thought about a kind of David Lynch "Blue Velvet" thing. But I wanted pure 1940 noir

Why'd he have to be a detective too? You could've just gone on ahead and made him a gangster. Although either way he'd still be working for the Emperor-boss. :D

Well the idea was that Vader had kind of political and military power he was the official law even though it was for evil.

"Impressive, kid, very impressive. But did Benton ever tell ya the truth about your old man, Lance?"

"He told me enough you scumbag! He told me you killed him!"

"Oh no, Lance. I AM your father."

I'll suggest the name Silvio Paladino for the Emperor-turned Mob boss. :la: (Unless you have a name for him already?)

I would have given him a mask like The Shadow maybe but credit it where its due you have been original and not done what people expected and I dont think anyone else could have made this so well done lol its brilliant either way

thanks, my intention with this line was pure noir, I felt the shadow was too pulp-y. Plus I did the bandana mask thing with the western line.

thanks again

I think is fine. The gas mask or something will be not Noir-ish.

Hmmm... I always thought of Vader more like a crime boss than a dirty cop. Little Caesar/Scarface style.



Either way, it looks great and I can't wait to see the whole set.

In my mind the crime boss has to be the emperor.

Anakin was a fallen member of a peace keeping force, ie a dirty cop.

That's a good point, I didn't even think about The Emperor when I said that. Which is why you're doing these sets, and not me :P

It's good, but Like the others have said, Something that obscures his face or keeps his eyes in the shadows would be more Vader-y and intimidating.

You can see my other responses on this, but I was going for pure Film Noir.

You could give him a pair of sunglasses that he never takes off, that would've retained the Vader-ness better. :)

it's not Impossible to obscure his face and still keep it Noir.

granted, It would probably be difficult.

Love it. The billowing of the trenchcoat really echoes Vader's cape while sticking to the period, and the look of the suit feels really perfect-- the shape of a double-breasted blazer kind of brings to mind the sort of control panel-y thing just a bit.

or at the very least some kind of respirator/ gas mask... half the mystery of vader is that you cant see his face... champion work tho

sillof Featured By Owner May 26, 2011
That is fine, you can see my thoughts in some of my other responses.

I was going for pure film noir, and the gas mask is too steampunk. And I have done a gas mask 2-3 times on my vaders, I was really trying to push the limits on this one.

That is fine, but the line is intended to be pure Film Noir. Not a lot of masks in "the big sleep"

Plus he is a cop in my story, can't have a cop running around in a sky mask.

His entire left side of his face is burned skin. There will be close ups on my website.
