New Luke Skywalker Edits December 2021

I’ve slowly been moving back towards making art with Adobe products which I used to do a lot more regularly. With everything that happened this year, I’ve actually stopped doing many things I used to do with vigour. Things like editing and making art in Adobe Photoshop.

So again, I can’t promise I’ll become more regular, but I’ll try. When you feel awful and tired all the time, it’s hard to be creative. But art has always been a reprieve for me. With that in mind, here are a few edits I did recently:

Luke Skywalker Edit #1

Art by Sergio Gomez Silvan. Edited by me.

The image above is from the book Star Wars The Secrets of the Jedi by Marc Sumerak and Luke Skywalker. Here’s the caption that I added to this on social media:

“The Jedi Order is dead. All that’s left now are legends. ⁠
Or at least that was supposed to be the case. My name is Luke Skywalker and had everything gone as I planned, I would have been the last Jedi”…⁠

– Luke Skywalker

Luke Skywalker Edit #2

Credit: Lucasfilm Edit by Me

The image above was a random one I found via Google, and I really liked it. The original is poor quality (which is why it’s all scratchy looking and grainy). I basically edited the image with filters and duotones and then added text using the same duotones from the picture, and voila! There was also text on the bottom of it that I edited out.

This is one below I did today, and I really like it because I started off with a completely different idea in my head. I saw a tutorial online that I wanted to replicate, but I ended up ditching it and using a few elements from it, like the flower. Then I got this idea in my head that Luke’s flower and colour would be blue. I combined them with the Rebel Alliance symbol and Aurabesh text saying “Hope,” and there you go!

And that’s it for today, my friends. Have you been up to anything creative lately? Let me know in the comments or just hit me up anyway 😄😁

SPOILERS PLEASE DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT YET SEEN THE FINAL EPISODE OF THE MANDALORIAN

I slept on the INTERNET-breaking news of Mark Hamill returning to the Star Wars franchise as young Jedi Master Luke Skywalker because I needed to let it sink in and there are too many spoiler-free fans on the internet to really enjoy it.

BUT NOW I CAN LET LOOSE…

JEDI MASTER LUKE SKYWALKER ANSWERS THE CALL FROM GROGU!

Yup, that’s it, that’s the post lol (joking) 😅. But the internet is alive and buzzing and has been for hours after the revelation that Jedi Master Luke Skywalker was the final character to appear at the end of the season two finale of The Mandalorian.

AND THE FANS ARE GOING WILD as you can well imagine. But OH MY GOD the footage OF LUKE SKYWALKER KICKIN’ DARK TROOPER ASS… seriously, STAR WARS just doesn’t get much better than this:

Luke Skywalker – The Original Hero by Brian Rood

Brian Rood has to be one of the most well known Star Wars artists out there, if not the most well known. His work has inspired generations of Star Wars artists and you can easily see why. Whilst there isn’t a lot of colour in Brian’s image above, there are a lot of elements in the image that work well with animation. I haven’t edited this image other than adding animation to it, even keeping the black paint splatters in from the original art.

I’ve always considered Luke Skywalker to be the original Star Wars hero for the films and to me he always will be.

These broken feels – courtesy of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo… *spoilers*

The above image was taken from Twitter and I immediately began thinking about the possibilities if The Last Jedi had included a scene where Luke Skywalker was reunited with Han Solo. There has been a lot of speculation about similar possibilities such as reuniting Ben Solo with his mother Leia or even reuniting the entire Solo family. Unfortunately, none of these scenarios was likely after TFA (where Han Solo is killed by Kylo Ren) and TLJ (when Jedi Master Luke Skywalker becomes one with the force).
