Star Wars Artist of the Month!

I haven’t done an artist of the month for a while so here’s this month’s choice and what a wonderful artist it is. This artist’s work first caught my eye on Pinterest and then on Tumblr and I’ve been a fan of her art ever since

Here’s a piece of hers that I’ve always loved – Reylo fans, this is to die for!

The original art (cropped down so I could animate it)

And my little bit of animation, making this beautiful art come alive. Nothing is better than the art itself, but I like to think I add something that makes the art stand out even more. This artist is just fantastically talented – you can find her work here on tumblr.

Can’t add Pins to Pinterest for some reason…

So I am going to just upload my edits here first and then check it tomorrow or something. One nice NEW addition Pinterest has made – you can now add MP4 files or video file formats to Pinterest (previously you could only add GIF format to Pinterest) so that’s going to make life a lot easier 🙂

Here’s an edit I was mucking around with today taken from the New Hope Steelbook:

And then I was playing around with a GIF with static image overlays – so it’s supposed to be a faster moving GIF in Vader’s eyes but the timing isn’t quite right yet. I wanted to portray the image of Vader as Vader looking out at the galaxy, the galaxy he was about to conquer and rule but I don’t like the timing on the GIF so I’ll change that before I upload it to Pinterest 🙂

Star Wars Edit – The Light, The Dark and The Balance

I was thinking about the light side the dark side and the balance when I made this GIF. I was actually prompted by something I saw on Tumblr, but I can’t remember what now 😦 Sometimes my ideas for GIFs or edits come from other people’s work and other times, my ideas come from everyday life – movies, people, conversations, an ad I might see on the street, basically anywhere. Creativity IS everywhere if you just take the time to look! I am finding this is definitely true for me.

The GIF is nothing great, I just edited some HD quality images and sequenced them together on a timeline in Photoshop. I didn’t even want to create a GIF with these images initially and I put the edit away thinking I was done with it and picked it up again yesterday and voila! A new GIF was made 🙂

I decided to leave it without my watermark on it. If people are gonna claim it as their own, meh I can always prove it if I have to and besides, while I hate not getting credit for stuff I create, at least I know my GIFs are good enough that someone wants to claim them as their own 🤣🤣😂
