Fell in love with both of these images when I saw them, especially the piece by Helen Shin – it’s nothing short of amazing… it needed to be animated!

And two of my favourite characters in the Star Wars universe together! Darth Vader and grandson, heir apparent, all-round bad boy Kylo Ren

I’ve since discovered that there are certain images that were made to animate and certain images that just aren’t. Picking the right image to work with is half the job, really. I’ve had some hit and misses along the way (not just animating Star Wars images either) and I think I might be a little better at picking the images that will just shine once they are animated.
I took one look at this image by artist Raymond Swanland and knew it would make a beautiful animation – I think I picked the right one 🙂
I finally finished my Darth Vader Plotagraph – I spent a lot of time on this one but mostly because I am trying to refine my masking technique (which isn’t that great but it’s getting better). Enjoy 🙂
