Ben Solo, Jedi Padawan – The Rise of Kylo Ren Part 2 Animation

The second comic from the series The Rise of Kylo Ren is apparently all sold out according to the writer, Charles Soule on Twitter. I loved the sneak-peek we were given by Marvel on Twitter so much I had to make some sort of edit from the images.

Here is a quick motion art graphic I made from the cover. I’ll probably do more but we’ll see how I am for time.

Here’s the new cover with art by Will Sliney and colours by Guru-eFX

And the animation. I particularly thought of Ben at this moment using the force and the light probably for the first time against opponents that were genuinely dark side force users. You can see the determination in Ben’s face, he isn’t going to give his enemies an inch! Also, the art is particularly good, it actually looks like a young Adam Driver.

“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.

Ben Solo and Rey “Broken Pieces” Animation and edits

I have spent a lot of time creating graphics, edits, GIFs etc since seeing The Rise of Skywalker so I’ll be uploading them all here. I’ve had to start adding watermarks to the GIFs I make again because I’ve seen way too many of the edits I’ve made credited to someone else. I just know that is what will keep happening until I start using a deterrent so back to adding watermarks, sigh.

Here’s an edit I just made, and I actually quite like this one:

When I look at myself… all I see is you…

Made by Star Wars Creative

And other edits I made using the same images using lyrics from a song I really like that kind of speaks to me regarding Rey and Ben/Kylo Ren’s complicated relationship. The song is “Broken Pieces” by Apocalyptica

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker Allegiance Kylo Ren Animation

I’ve been looking through the latest star wars comics and as you know, creating animated comic covers and comic art is kind of my thing. So I saw this image of Kylo Ren and really wanted to animate it so here it is – plus I promised to upload more content. I did this one today. What do you think?

Original Image – Art by Luke Ross

… and the animated art:

I’ve also started watermarking the stuff I edit and animate because too many people are taking my edited images from Pinterest or this website and reposting as their own. So unless they’re wizards in Photoshop, they’re not getting this image without a watermark any time soon… πŸ˜…

Darth Vader Marvel Comic 025 Animated Variant Cover

One of my favourite things to do is animate Star Wars art but animating comic covers is particularly fun. Especially when there are so many good covers out there to animate. I haven’t animated anything in some time, and I did take a bit of a break after my little meltdown but now I am back and rearing to go.

Here’s an edit I did of this cover by Joe Quesada:

Star Wars tickets are going on sale SOON!

The big news all Star Wars fans are excited for is that tickets have been confirmed to go on sale for TRoS on Monday the 21st after the trailer drops. For me, that’ll be around 2PM on a Tuesday, so I’ll be at work with my hand on the mouse waiting to book my tickets. Assuming I don’t lose my mind first over the trailer and get all emotional at work… that won’t be good πŸ˜†πŸ€£

But seriously, it is a time to feel a little down for Star Wars fans as tomorrow’s trailer will be the last one we will ever see for the Skywalker Saga.

Anyway, here’s a two edits I did, one was split into two separate images and I created the whole image which I think looks better – art by @echoart_hun on Instagram. Isn’t this magnificent?

And an animation of an art piece that I’m not sure of, it looks like Eli Hyder’s work but maybe not:

Just a quick edit of my last poem

I have some spare time before I jog off to work, so I started making this image edit and then it kind of evolved into this edit with the poem I wrote the other day, and now it has become this:
