Graphic illustrator and sci-fi enthusiast Charles AP recently created these skeletal portraits of notorious Star Wars characters Darth Vader and Shadow Stormtrooper. The images, fittingly titled 'Skull Trooper' and 'Skull Vader,' artfully render the iconic galactic villains into eerie atrophied characters.

AP cleverly constructed these spooky sci-fi makeovers using Photoshop illustrator and a series of preliminary drafts. AP is known for his emphasis on anatomy and bones in his drawings and these skull versions of the Star Wars villains pay beautiful tribute to his unconventional drawing technique. Both the 'Skull Trooper' and 'Skull Vader' images render these intergalactic bad guys as weathering skeletons with hollowed-out eye sockets and sharp, bony face structures and rotting teeth. The end result is a creepy rendition of several iconic Star Wars characters.
