Orlando Arocena’s New Star Wars Vector Tribute: “Dark Side” Evokes The Power Of The Force

A good friend once told me, “You can NEVER have enough Star Wars,” and I absolutely agree.  Especially when it is THIS good.  Vector artist Orlando Arocena has just released a new print that is sure to cause a disturbance in “The Force.”  Titled “Dark Side” it features Lord Vader with a bit o Emperor Palpatine thrown in for good measure.

Here is what Orlando had to say about the project over on his official BEHANCE PAGE.

Out of all the Starwars movies, Empire Strikes Back is my ultimate favorite. We get introduced to the Emperor, Boba Fett, and get a front row seat to experiencing the Power of the Dark Side. There’s one particular scene where I believe the Art Direction /set design/ lighting is just phenomenal! Where Vader trys out his Carbonite toy on Han Solo….The emphasis on Tech Deco and the extreme cool / hot tones makes it a visual feast for the eyes.

The one scene that has stuck with me all these years and my favorite portrayal of SINISTER has to be the sequence of the carbonite smoke billowing upward and revealing the ominous Vader ( 1:50 video below ). Well, creatively I wanted to capture and embellish upon these elements with a vector pop deco tribute. Cheer and enjoy~ Orlando Arocena


These prints are available now in very limited quantities on Orlando’s OFFICIAL STORE PAGE.  There are two versions, paper and foil.

Foil Edition
