Had some fun drawing Darth Vader this evening. I always thought Darth Vader was scary as a kid, but now that I'm a big boy and I've re-watched the Star Wars, I've realized that his head is too big to be scary.
Go back and watch it. His helmet is massive, which is exactly why Spaceballs spoofed it with Darth Helmet. Kinda like Batman's mask in the 1989 Michael Keaton version. His mask is massive. He walks wobbly. He's too stiff. And it all stems from the big noggin.
It's not scary, it's a bobblehead.
Babies have big heads, and who's scared of a baby? Nobody.
