This is “Luke The Last Jedi” by 800lbProductions – I saw this picture and couldn’t resist adding some animation to it, it’s just awesome. This is one huge a55 file though, geez – it took me ages to add the animation and of course after I was done, it ended up being a 70 meg file lol! Looking at the finished product, it was well worth it.
And something non Star Wars related, I’ve started adding animation to other things outside of Star Wars and thought I would blog about it here. There are some really beautiful Movie Posters out there and when I saw this one, for The Doors (1991), I had to add something to it:
Brian Rood has to be one of the most well known Star Wars artists out there, if not the most well known. His work has inspired generations of Star Wars artists and you can easily see why. Whilst there isn’t a lot of colour in Brian’s image above, there are a lot of elements in the image that work well with animation. I haven’t edited this image other than adding animation to it, even keeping the black paint splatters in from the original art.
I’ve always considered Luke Skywalker to be the original Star Wars hero for the films and to me he always will be.
Hey everyone (assuming people still read this blog). I’ve been a long time away from posting here but it’s not without good reason. Almost a month or so ago something happened to me while I was playing SWTOR. Something inside me just broke. Ever since then, I haven’t been able to bring myself to play. I don’t know why it happened but it just did. So I took a breather from the fandom and today is the first time I’ve thought about creating more SW motion art in a while, which is why I haven’t posted here. I still update my IG but not as often as I used to. I am still on Pinterest and Twitter but in a reduced capacity. I’ve actually been pulled back into an old fandom of mine for the Karate Kid franchise and I’ve been hanging out mostly on Tumblr with other like-minded fans of the movie and the new YT Red show, Cobra Kai.
I can’t explain exactly how I feel about things. I am still trying to figure it all out but for now, I’ve decided to keep creating motion art because someone on IG sent me a really nice message and it’s helped to motivate me back into creating stuff.
So for anyone who still frequents this blog, this is for you, and thank-you for sticking with me, even though I’ve been a fairly crappy blogger of late.
