I always wanted to visualize John Williams’ great instrumental theme and picture all of the masked men of the Empire. I began by sculpting each character in Zbrush, rigging them in DAZ Studio, simulating cloth in Marvelous Designer, and finally rendering them in Octane Render for C4d. This was super fun to make all of the characters that I grew up with-I was drawn to the characters behind masks as they have a certain intrigue to them.

Darth Vader vs Mara Jade by Mike Heath

Darth Vader vs Mara Jade by Mike Heath

A new personal work. I wanted to explore this great character from the Heir to the Empire book series. I liked the idea of Mara being tested by Vader while she was under the Emperor’s training.

I sculpted all of the character suits from scratch and spent lots of time on Vader and the stormtrooper which I plan on using for future artworks. It was really fun to tackle these classic costumes and add my thoughts to Mara Jade. I then used Daz to rig the suits to figures for quick posing. I was able to complete the whole process in about 4 days.
