That is a very cool picture.  I've seen others that look somewhat like that.  Here's one that I've always liked, and is similar in nature to the one you shared with us.

Man both of those pictures rock.   Like scruffy said they do a good job of depicting the conflict within vader.   I whish the EE exclusive vader bust would have resembled one of these pics.

On the remembering padmen pic, is there a larger copy of it? Like a print or poster...? I really like it, thanks for sharing Scruffy!

I'm not really sure, I saved the picture onto my computer awhile back. I got it theforce.net, I think a fan posted it or something. I wish I knew, it would be a cool poster to have.

That is a pretty sweet pic!  I like seeing Vader in these pics, as still younger, but scarred, with all of the conflict.

Notice the copyright on that last pic was 1999...and the closest one to him is Mace.  That seems awfully precient...

Damn good Pics. It makes you wonder as to how long after the events of ROTS that Vader/Anakin eventually forgets about Padme and his prior life.

Do you think he had forgotten?  Interesting...

Never. It was always on his mind, that is why throughout his life as Vader there was always conflict.

I know buy that... You can tell he's got a lot on his mind through Empire and Jedi though most of it is about luke.. Nice to see that while he was a kid looking out at the stars he still does it as Vader.... Nice pic by the way!!!!

Cool pics guys. Shows all the conflict that Anakin went through and continued going through.

That's a haunting piece art in more ways than one, really pretty unsettling.  Awesome, I love that.  I agree that the '99 copyright is pretty damn strange too, even better IMO.
