But not more menacing. That would be just silly. Still, alternate universe Darth Vader makes a good effort.

The redesigned Vader was drawn by 1oshuart of DeviantArt (AKA artist Joshua Cairós) for a Star Wars-themed challenge organized by the Brainstorm Facebook group. The group got a lot of entries, but 1oshuart's is just something else—and his other art is pretty goshdarn awesome, too. Here's his DA gallery if you want more.
