Leia and Vader by Jedi-Art-Trick Leia and Vader by Jedi-Art-Trick
This was just me really wanting to paint a redeemed (yet still alive) Darth Vader and Leia wearing a white getup like Padme wore in episode 2, just for fun.

The idea came from the Star Wars Infinites Return of the Jedi comic, in which Vader is actually saved by Luke and Leia and turns away from the dark side, joining the rebellion. In the last panel, he dons a completely white suit of his armor. I thought that was a neat idea, but the white armor was a bit much. I just wanted to give a little more "sith-turned-jedi" vibe from him, while I wanted to give Leia a little more "hot-in-a-tight-white-suit" vibe. ;)

I like how this could have happened in the actual Starwars universe because if Anakin had helped defeat Sideous he probably would have been horribly scarred like he was by Obi-wan.

Ever since I saw that comic I thought the same thing. The only difference in my mind was that I pictured his helmet and the stripes on his chest armour getting a chrome treatment. 

I fully support your "hot-in-a-tight-white-suit" treatment of Leia.

I always pictured if  Vader survived and become a Jedi again he would have a more brown colored  cape and stuff.

I would just wonder how Luke (and perhaps Leia if she was as forgiving) would convince the Rebel hierarchy not to execute Lord Vader for his role in various war crimes. I can't imagine the ground troops having a good time with him around. Especially some of the officers who are aware of how 'Vader' treats commanders with a history of tactical failure. Sure, the news of defection would demoralise the storm troopers who once idolised the man as a field general (especially the 501st) and rebel tacticians would see the value of another force wielding combatant on their side. However, the Rebels still wouldn't place their good faith on Luke's word alone. 

I can even see the awkward atmosphere around Han solo and 'Anakin.' 

Han: "So... uh... you tortured me and froze me in a carbon tank!"

Anakin: "I was but the tool, the instrument of the emperor."

Han: "Tool my ass! By the way, I'm screwing your daughter." 

Anakin: *Do not choke, do not choke, do not choke!*

Now I kind of want that to be a thing. It'd be pretty hilarious... But you're right about the people not trusting, despite everything e (Assuming this is an alternate ending to The Return of the Jedi when it comes to achievements)  I don't think his words would be enough to change the Rebel's view on him, then again (I've never read the comic this is inspired by so I have no idea how it turn out, so if I am wrong with this alternate ROTJ then feel free to current me) Him killing the Emperor could help change some opinions about him.

Really like this one! Goes along with the Infinities series I read, the RotJ one has Vader being redeemed and not dying. This is a beautiful piece of a rarely seen duo! :D
