Darth Malgus Motion Art – SWTOR

Hi everyone! So I am slowly easing back into regular posts again, and since I haven’t done an art-related post in a really long while, I thought I’d make some motion art for Pinterest and for here (of course!)

Here’s one I did of Darth Malgus taken from the new SWTOR background, which I just loved! Here’s the original image, and I just loved Darth Malgus’ pose here, so I decided to “borrow” it for an image I wanted to make:

Take out that (awesome) noisy background and replace it with this!

Annnnnd add Darth Malgus back in, and yay! 😁

Don’t ask me why he’s on a planet that looks a lot like Mustafar. I just liked it lol.

And here’s the finished image with animation added (because it looks terrific, I think!)

Made by Darkside Creative

What do you reckon? I enjoyed making it, and hopefully, I’ll continue on this burst of creativity! Who knows what I might make next 😅😁

Let me know what you’ve been up to this week! Anything exciting? Feel free to catch up with me in the comments!

Darth Malgus Motion Art

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well . I know I’ve been blogging a lot of edits and art lately and I hope everyone is enjoying these edits! I’ve felt very creative lately and I also want to get into the habit of creating content for my blog and IG more often.

Here’s one motion art edit that I did yesterday of Darth Malgus – I don’t have any credit for the artist either but I couldn’t look away from this one – Darth Malgus is so scary, right? I mean you can see his dark side corruption which just makes him look even more lethal. And I really wanted to bring his Sith eyes alive by animating the iris.

Let me know what you’ve all been up to – anything exciting or interesting? Let me know in the comments!

Until tomorrow’s post, stay safe out there, keep creating and I’ll catch you tomorrow 😁

Darth Vader Edit / Motion Art

I am going to try and be a lot more diligent with my edits now because looking at what I’ve uploaded to Pinterest, it seems I’ve uploaded some things here and some things there over the last few years. It doesn’t seem to be a uniform thing and is quite sad on my part 🤣 I guess I wasn’t really thinking about SEO and stats all that much but I’ve since realised that you really need to if you want your blog to show up in search engines. I think everyone does to some extent unless of course you’re blogging purely for yourself and you don’t care about gathering a larger audience (which is perfectly fine as well). Your blog can be whatever you want it to be!

I saw these images on Instagram and wondered what some of them would look like animated so I did one because I am on my lunch break and a little lazy 🤣

Artist – His instagram is right here https://www.instagram.com/swsimonz/

And I thought I would resurrect an old favourite of mine that got a lot of interest on Pinterest many moons ago 😁

WANT AN ANIMATION DONE? You’ve come to the right place 😀

Happy to do animation for any of my readers (assuming I’m not bogged down with writing or other website stuff). So if you have an image that you want to see animated, message me in the comments and I’ll see what I can do. Please note that not all images look good with animation so I do reserve the right to say “nope” if I feel it’d be too time consuming. The best types of images to animate include any image with something that benefits from having motion added to it. As an example above, the light from the lightsaber looks great animated, the rain looks almost real and Vader’s cloak flows nicely with animation.

Hit me up people, tell me how you’re doing!

The Pull to the Light – Kylo Ren Animation

I’ve spent some time organising my motion art, GIFs and video clips on Pinterest because I have amassed quite a few over the year or so that I’ve been making them. I thought just one board looked too cluttered and now I can see exactly how many I’ve made and what I’ve made.

While GIF-making was not new to me, creating motion art was something new that I started to enjoy and thought “why not?” Just with anything that’s new, I can see that some of the images I made weren’t as polished as they could have been now that I’ve been making them for a couple years. So I am using some of those original images I created as Motion Art and I’m improving them, at least I think I am 😂

Here’s one I remember making and I liked it at that time, but I decided to improve it. I see Kylo Ren’s struggle in this image, the shadows behind him but still part of him, with the light still there, trying to penetrate the shadow. Turning it into motion art was a pleasure. I also edited the original image extensively as I didn’t like how “washed” out and over-exposed the original image looked. When I first made this motion art I didn’t even notice that the original image was over-exposed. I guess I have learned a few things along the way 😊

“The force will never betray you”… Kylo Ren and Ben Solo edit

I had this image in my head of an edit I wanted to do with both Kylo Ren and Ben Solo which started off as something like a “Who did you become?” post which I’ve done before with other characters. But then I looked at the image I had made a little longer and came up with the edit below. The concept stems from Kylo Ren being Ben Solo and Ben Solo is Kylo Ren. Even when Kylo Ren was at his worst, in his darkest hour (from The Force Awakens when he killed his father), to the moment he turned his back on Kylo Ren and became Ben Solo once more. The force was there, it was always there, flowing all around him, flowing between Kylo Ren and Ben Solo and within them. Even though they are one person, Adam Driver was so masterful at portraying them as two separate people and that’s how I came up with this edit. I wanted to show the force flowing between both of his persona’s, and just as he was two different people, darkness and light, I wanted to show this in the flow of the force, both red for darkness and blue for light.

And in the end, the force would never betray him as the force was always there both in his darkest moments and his most heroic.
