The Hokie Bird Has Turned to the Dark Side

Your votes are in, and Darth Vader won!

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome Hokie faithful!  Last week I was inspired to draw the Hokie Bird in the vein of Kylo Ren.  Additionally, I entreated the Gobbler Country readers to vote, or tell me, which character they would like to seem me draw the Hokie Bird as.  After the reader votes were in the decision to stick with a Star Wars was made!  Without further ado, here is the Hokie Bird as Darth Vader.

It's the Hokie Bird as Darth Vader

I'm pretty happy with this Hokie Bird.  I drew it in a bit of a different style than the Kylo Ren Hokie Bird, and also drew it black and white.  All in all though, I think it turned out pretty well!

I am going to try and draw a Hokie Bird every week or so, time permitting of course, so let us know what you would like to see! I've provided some ideas in a poll below.   But, if none of those interest yo feel free to provide your feedback or ideas on our Facebook wall.  You can also message me directly on Twitter, @jjohnsonVATech.
