In this time-lapse portrait, Darth Vader materializes in under four minutes

Courtesy of Dark Horse Comics, here's an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at how artist Chris Scalf digitally illustrated the upcoming cover of Star Wars: Blood Ties – Boba Fett is Dead #3. Watch as the Sith Lord and the carnage he's wreaked appear right before your very eyes!

The first issue of Star Wars: Blood Ties – Boba Fett is Dead hits stores in April 2012. Here's a synopsis of this miniseries from author Tom Taylor:

Boba Fett is dead. The most infamous hunter in the galaxy has been hunted. He's lying, broken, on the desert floor. He's more blaster-holes than man. It's the ultimate ending. However, this is just the start of our story. With the fall of Fett broadcast across the galaxy, someone rises to avenge him. But who would care about the death of a man like Fett? Bounty hunters aren't exactly known for their enduring, close friendships but even a man like Boba Fett has family... and now a Blood Tie demands blood.

Very clever. I wish I had these skills. One minor nitpick though - I couldn't stop looking at the triangle section on Vader's chin, which became off-centre from the moment he fiddled with the facemask.
