I’ve started on my “daily theme” idea on my IG account and so far it seems to be working pretty good. It makes it a lot easier to post things because I can just search for images matching the theme of the day. Today was “Lightside Tuesday” and I’ve made two animations to celebrate it. Here you are, enjoy πŸ™‚

The image above was taken from an iPhone background and I just made it look more sparkly and shiny and electric πŸ™‚

I collect a lot of the Black Series figurines and it’s actually one of my favourite types of star wars collectable to collect. So the art for these figurines is of course, also pretty up there with some of my favourite star wars art. Gregory Titus is an amazing artist, and his artwork for The Black Series really brings the characters to life.

Speaking of bringing to life, here’s one of Gregory Titus’ pieces for The Black Series, with a little special addition by me πŸ™‚

I’ve been thinking about my Instagram account for a little while and I want to try something different on there going forward. I want to start using “themes” for different days of the week and see how that works for my followers. So this is what I came up with:

MONDAY – DARKSIDE MONDAYΒ  – content from any source but only from the dark side
TUESDAY – LIGHTSIDE TUESDAY – same as above but celebrating the light side
WEDNESDAY – OLD SKOOL WEDNESDAY – posts from the Original Trilogy only
THURSDAY – TOPPS CARD AND COMIC THURSDAY – Followers can vote for the next animation and posts from comic covers and art
FRIDAY – WHO IS THE BADDEST / WHO IS THE COOLEST? Character discussion and comparison with art and maybe my own edits
SATURDAY – COLLECTIBLE AND GAMING SATURDAY – celebrating Star Wars collectables and video games
SUNDAY – RANDOM ART AND FEATURE THE ARTIST DAY – I will pick an artist on IG that focuses on Star Wars art and showcase their art on my blog as well as random posts throughout the day

I’ll try it out and see if it works for my followers and if not, that’s OK at least I gave it a try, right?

And to celebrate the new IG themes here’s an animation I did yesterday picked by my IG followers:

I’ve recently become a “Wallpaper Engine” inductee – I’m taking my motion art and gifs to the next level and trying to recreate them as actual backgrounds or “wallpaper” for everyone to enjoy. I was put onto the idea by someone who left a really nice comment on my Instagram page some months ago. Initially, I didn’t think my motion art would work with wallpaper engine but I’ve revisited the idea and my first wallpaper is ready to go – what do you think? It’s big enough for 4K resolution monitors (I’ve actually got this wallpaper working on my PC and it actually looks amazing in 4K resolution).

I took the concept for this from an original edit found on Reddit and I kinda went with it from that image – I removed the text, edited the image extensively in Photoshop and then added the animation for the final result***EDIT*** The full resolution image actually broke WordPress and wouldn’t display so I had to edit it down to 1080p:

While I was creating stuff I also updated this gif I posted some time ago by adding the lightsaber effect to the image (original art by Eddie H)
