    Jul 15, 2008, 10:56 AM - Dave Dorman painting of Vader leading an army of stormtroopers.. #1

    I had thought in the past that I had seen someone that had this painting as a wallpaper on their computer, can someone point me in the right direction to finding this image? I did a google search for hours trying to find it, and yes, I checked on Dave's website, and there is a small version of it, but I would like a larger version for my desktop (if they sell a poster of it for reasonable that would be great too!), Dave's a huge inspiration to Studio Fett.

    Appreciate your help!

    Talked to Dave at JoeCon here about two weeks ago, and these were part of a limited printing run, and only 14 or 15 Prints were left..they were done for Celebration last year.... He said he was not authorized to print anymore, so they're very limited now. if you can get one, I would recommend it......and it's a HUGE print.

    but he did say he could repaint one ....for a small fee of course.

    I remember this painting from CIV. Do you know how many prints were originally made?

    All artists at CIV were limited to the number of prints they could sell on exclusive CIV Art prints... I don't know the number off hand, but Dave had about 5 of these prints with him at JoeCon...and said he didn't have very many left... were about 25-30$.

    he does do any custom painting commisions, or "recreations" of previous work...he said those Start out at about 800$...for those that might be interested in that.

    I was lucky I got one of his last Palisades Mini Bust Snake Eyes prints...for only 15.00$ no less....steal in my book.

    Philip Wise and C2 Ventures will host Dave for STAR WARS FanDays 2 in Dallas, for those who are interested. http://www.scifiexpo.com/DCC/Home/En...n_Days_II.html

    Thanks for sharing all of the info SpideyFett. Dave has been a huge influence on my art for many years, and this piece is what I consider one of his best works!

    Holy Kerap! Okay I'm confused, did Dave base his painting on this, or was this based on Dave's painting???

    Thats Squad 7 on the card. We got together at a photography studio and recreated the print for a Squad poster. Only a couple of us did it, so I'm in that picture 3-5 times lol.

    So the card/poster of Squad 7 with the Jacksonville background was done based on the print, with permission

    I'm two of the scouts in the back...the one pointing and the one under the scout walker...it was a quick shoot (for me) but a lot of fun to see the process. Dave did another one with MWG members with Tusken's and TD's. It's also very cool!

    Thanks for the information man, that's some cool stuff! Any chance you know where that other piece can be located (the Tusken Raiders)? I would love to see it!

    That is really awesome! That was some major photoshoping in that pic, it's hard to tell that it wasn't a single photo. Appreciate the info Wolfie!

    yeah it was some serious shopping, those guys have skills , lol.

    The sandtrooper with blue tube stripes is Tina, you can kinda see in the back there is a trooper with a pauldron with black tube stripes. those are me, and I am also the person in the very front falling down, and one of the up close troopers. I was clean at the time, but going back sandy and it was the last thing I did in my FX bucket before getting a TE to replace it with LOL.

    all the guards and the Vader are the same guy lol.
