Three iconic villains clash in an epic battle light saber battle! Just like every hero has a beginning. Villains have their very own. Dath Maul being the first of the three. Born into the Darthmirian race, Darth Maul began his journey and took apprenticeship under Darth Sidious. Sidious trained Darth Maul to be the agile and athletic Sith that Darth Maul came to be.

Emperor Palpatine, a human who was naturally drawn to the Force, later became known as one of the most powerful Sith Lords who had ever lived. Hungry for power and knowledge at a young age Emperor Palpatine often clashed with his complacent and arrogant father. Palpatine saw more power in his future and continued to seek it despite the division he felt amongst his own family and peers. He later found his place serving as the last Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic and the first Emperor of the Galactic Empire.

Darth Vader is a force sensitive human male who chose the dark side as his prime source of power. Heartless, cruel, and powerful Vader led and walked a dark path. From a very young age, Vaderís impending dark future was almost guaranteed to happen. Vader, or at the time a young Aniken Skywalker was born to be the Chosen one. To fuel his path of darkness Aniken held his mother as she died in his arms after she was kidnapped and brutally tortured by Tusken Riaders. Aniken proceeded to murder every raider including women and children. Filled with guilt, anger, and rage, Aniken began to have visions of his beloved pregnant wifeís demise. Further filled with fear Aniken went under emperor Palatines leadership which led to more betrayal heartbreak and death.

Three villains very different beginnings but all ending their journey crossing over to the dark side. In this sketch Greg drew each of these powerful figures clashing and using their powers of the dark side to do what they do best FIGHT!! Greg loves to draw all different characters whether the character is good or bad, Greg loves to create interesting compositions and scenes.
