Dune Image Updates

I figured with the actual trailer for Dune about to drop any day now, nobody is going to care about a couple of enhanced images taken from a mobile phone in a theatre.

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR – DERP I JUST REALISED THE ONLINE TEASER DROPPED!! UPDATED IMAGES BELOW!

From what I have read, the teaser was made specifically for viewers in theatres and therefore, the content may or may not be the same in the trailer dropping soon. Part of the teaser trailer is the same as the one viewed in theatres, namely this image of Paul below:

The last image is really bad and I didn’t bother editing that because the quality is just so poor but as you can see, one of these shots is taken in the desert. And the other two are taken from the “What’s in the box?” scene that I’m hoping will be covered much better in the trailer.

Are you looking forward to Dune this year? I am hoping they won’t push it back but you never know. However, with Tenet storming away in theatres in the USA now, I doubt they’ll be pushing Dune back and I am hoping the trend continues with COVID-19 being stomped out!

For me, these movies represent something that gives me an escape from some of the not-so-good days we’ve all been having. And I get excited and feel happier when I know something is coming that’s going to be fun and entertaining. And it’s also something I can share with all my readers which is the most important thing!

I hope you are having a good day and remember that it’s “okay to not be okay”. I saw that on a Pinterest board and I loved it 🙂

ALSO DUNE FANS did you get that Timothee Chalamet is quoting word for word from the book? Wowww I can’t wait for this!

Hit me up in the comments and I would love to talk about Dune with everyone!

Dune Teaser Trailer has Leaked!

So I kind of link Dune and Star Wars together for many reasons but mostly because there are a lot of similarities between the two. So it seems odd to me that anyone that loves Star Wars wouldn’t be interested in Dune. But it’s totally okay if you’re not, of course 😁

So there will be some Dune posts here and there but I promise not to inundate anyone with too many😅

I have posted about Dune before when it was first announced and I figured since the trailer releases in seven days, it might be time to post again.

I did have a lovely GIF I was going to show you all but that GIF was taken down by Warner Brothers on Instagram… I did hear that Warner Bros were being really staunch about people uploading anything relating to the film if it was from the teaser trailer and guess what? This time they were telling the truth. I mean I get it. It is breaching copyright laws.

So a quick little GIF edit I found online which I converted into a smaller GIF because I thought it was pretty!

And finally an excerpt from the book which I really like:

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

― Frank Herbert, Dune

Stay safe out there my friends and I’ll catch you in tomorrow’s post!

Photoshop Update – Adobe Creative Cloud

For any of my readers that use Photoshop or Adobe products, there was a recent update to Photoshop which I haven’t really had time to play with as yet. But one of the best tools in Photoshop for creating subject selections has been updated, and that’s a big deal. This tool allows you to “cut out” anything from an image whether that be a person, an object or anything you want really. In particular, when using the selection tool to select hair on a subject, this can be a tricky technique to master. With the new improvements to this tool, it’s even easier to select a subject and their hair and make that selection look realistic.

I’ve already used the tool on one of my earlier images where I cut out the picture of Timothee Chalamet in a graphic I was making:

The selection I made was good enough to use, but I refined it even more with the updated tool and used it again in a different image:

As you can see, the improvement is a much cleaner selection in the updated image above.

More photoshop goodness to come my friends. Let me know if you’ve created anything recently that you’d like to share in the comments!

As always, stay safe and keep creating and I’ll catch you in the next post!

My Star Wars Gifs and Edits

House Atreides GIFs and Graphics!

I have had some fun this morning creating different variations of GIFs and graphics from some PNG images I created earlier when making this. I then went online and found that someone had created a House Atreides coat of arms which I then “borrowed” and cut out into a different image.

From that point on it was easy peasy creating different variations of the emblem (the Red Hawk) and the House Atreides colours (which are black and green). I made changes here and there and finally decided on the following graphics as final images for uploading here:

Created by Darkside Creative

The variation I made was, in the end, tossed aside for the image above. Still, I originally started out with creating a different Coat of Arms for House Atreides and ended up removing the shield altogether. I really liked the blending edit I made of Paul though and somehow wanted to integrate that into my final image which also didn’t happen.

Created by Darkside Creative

So I just kept the graphic instead without the GIF added to it:

I’ve also watermarked all my images. I just think it’s easier for me to identify when someone has taken my edits and claimed them as their own when they can’t see the watermark. It’s sneaky but a necessity these days, unfortunately.

Let me know what you think of my edits in the comments if you like, and as always stay safe and keep creating!
