Typographic Darth Vader by Bakageta-Koto Typographic Darth Vader by Bakageta-Koto

If you like this, check out Typographic Yoda, too! [link]

Here is my final Deviation of the Evil Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader. He was made in AI CS4 entirely out of quotes from the six Star Wars movies, as well as both Clone Wars TV series, and The Force Unleashed. (I admit it, I really only used the lovey-dovey Ani-Padme quotes in the thin outlines. XD) The typeface is Craterface BB Regular.

This was completed after about six solid days of work. Merry late Christmas and early happy New Year, Vader fans! ^^

Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker and all quotes used belong to George Lucas and Lucasarts.

Quotes used include:


I had a dream that I was a Jedi. I came back here and freed all the slaves.
Are you an angel?

No one can kill a Jedi.


Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential to a Jedi's life. So you might say, that we are encouraged to love.

I killed them. I killed them all. They're dead, every single one of them. And not just the men, but the women and the children, too.

I'm Anakin Skywalker.

It's all Obi-Wan's fault. He's jealous. He's holding me back.

You're asking me to be rational. That is something that I know I cannot do. Believe me, I wish I could just wish away my feelings, but I can't.

From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you. And now that I'm with you again... I'm in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you—I can't breathe. I'm haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating, hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me... what can I do? I will do anything you ask.
Some day I will be... I will be the most powerful Jedi ever. I promise you. I will even learn to stop people from dying."


Master, I've disappointed you. I have not been very appreciative of your training . . . I have been arrogant and I apologize . . . I've just been so frustrated with the Council.

What have I done?

Don't make me kill you!

Obi-Wan, may the force be with you.

Something's happening. I'm not the Jedi I should be. I want more. And I know I shouldn't.

I do not fear the dark side as you do. I have brought peace, freedom, justice, and security to my new Empire.

I will do whatever you ask. Just help me save Padme's life. I can't live without her. If she dies, I don't know what I will do.

Yes, my Master.


Obi-Wan is here. The Force is with him.

I have you now!

The force is strong with this one.

You should not have come back.

As you wish.

I sense something. A presence I've not felt since...

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master.

Your powers are weak, old man.

This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of Kenobi, it will soon see the end of the Rebellion.


He will join us or die, my master.

What is thy bidding, my master?

The force is with you, young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet.

Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me.

Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.

If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.

No. I am your father.

Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further.

Luke, you can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son.

All too easy.

He is just a boy. Obi-Wan can no longer help him.

If he could be turned, he will become a powerful ally.


So, you have accepted the truth.

That name no longer has any more meaning for me!

You are unwise to lower you defenses!

Just for once... let me... look on you with my own eyes.

You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister... you were right.

My son is with them.

Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps she will...

Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don't know the power of the Dark Side, I must obey my master.

I see you have constructed a new lightsaber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are powerful as the Emperor has foreseen.

It is too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.
You underestimate the power of the dark side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.


The desert is merciless. It takes everything from you.

You're reckless, little one. You never would have made it as Obi-Wan's Padawan. But you might make it as mine...

When I finished constructing my lightsaber, Obi-Wan said to me: Anakin, this weapon is your life. This weapon is my life.


I am a Jedi Knight. I won't fail you.

I'm going to make you pay for what you've done.


You have done well, my apprentice.

You were weak when I found you. I did not expect you to survive your training. But now, your hatred has become your strength. At last, the dark side is your ally.

Your fate is now your own. Sever all ties with the past. Let no one know that you still serve me. Now go and remember, the Dark Side is always with you.

THE FORCE ULEASHED II TRAILER (I'm so looking forward to this game!!)

Foolishly, you hold to hope for the life you once had. You think you have a purpose, a destiny. You are but a shadow of your former self, weak and misguided. Accept the certainty that all is lost.

This is tremendous work. I can't begin to imagine how you went about starting this.

This is amazing! I'm actually probably going to buy a print to put in my room, but I looked closely and I noticed there was a watermark type reference with your name and if that would take the professionalism away :\
Bakageta-Koto Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Kudos to you for looking that close! I'm honored that you're considering buying a print. ^^ I'd still like to keep some mark that it's my work... Hmm... What would you recommend?
samgeekthebrave Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2010
(: well its going to be a semi formal environment, so i would recommend your signature in the lower corner. much more personal I think, and classier. no pressure or anything, but that would push me to buy a print.
Bakageta-Koto Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
*nods nods* Very well. =3 I shall see what I can do about switching my username whatnot out for a suitable quote. (Luckily for me, I put the AI file in proper storage where it's actually -supposed- to go.)
samgeekthebrave Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2010
Thanks so much!
I'll probably buy the mid sized print within a month or two when the money comes in (:
