Darth Plagueis

This is a book cover I created for an upper level course in advanced computer illustration techniques. The assignment called for a redesigned book cover of a pre-existing book. I chose to redesign the Illustration for the Star Wars novel, Darth Plagueis, which is among my favorites of the entire franchise. My focus with this illustration was conveying how Plagueis's obsession for power eventually leads to his downfall, and how he is eat up from the inside by his overwhelming desire to circumvent life itself and retain his power indefinitely. These are the final results.
