“I’m here to rescue you!” – Luke Skywalker Animation

I really like this Luke Skywalker quote from Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope and got a cool idea from an article I read in an old Star Wars Insider magazine. I used that original concept and came up with the following edit and animation. I realised after masking the image of Luke Skywalker into my GIF that for some reason, copying from a PDF may have distorted the image so I had to mask it again and “touch up” the image some more before I could use it. Then I created the first GIF and didn’t like the colour because I had used a transparent background layer originally. So I then had to create a new layer with a white background and then created the final animation that I was happy with. I also made an edit because, why not?

Here’s the animation


And the edit

    1. So I went home and checked the animation I did, it’s 30 frames – I had to extend it because I wanted to create the file in mp4 format for Instagram and Pinterest ๐Ÿ™‚ Are you a digital creator or interested in animation?

      1. Nice to meet a fellow creative ๐Ÿ™‚ Instagramcan be hit and miss but I find that as a visual platform, art usually does really well, you can definitely find your audience there if you post often enough ๐Ÿ™‚
