VADERS CASTLE by skybolt VADERS CASTLE by skybolt
I just recently finished as Lead Concept Artist on Rogue one, which took about two years! I have many pieces in the Art of book, but will
be sharing plenty here too soon! Including The Force Awakens art too :)

This is the concept I did for Vaders Castle during post. I think this was only the second version I did, and pretty much saw its way through to final.

I tend to post a fair bit of this work on my Instagram, so be sure to follow me there if your interested. I go by the name cuppasketch:…

Welp insta watch.  Loved this castle.

Too bad it wasn't on Vjun though.

It felt a bit uncanny in the movie that Darth Vader basically lived in the eye tower from Mordor. I disagree quite heavily with how the movie handled Vader as a character, but designwise, was there any particular motivation? Because this was one of two design choices that just didn't make a lot of sense to me. I would love a discussion on the matter.

Great job, this is both sinister and beautiful. This castle has Mordor written all over it.

Thought in the movie and until today that it looked like Mordor. Not only becaus the lava and its colour but also because of the cannelures etc.

I just got the concept art book for Rogue One. Your work is amazing! Any advice for a newer artist that wants to reach the same caliber as you?

Great to see you posting art here again!  This concept of Vader's Castle is absolutely immaculate.
