Kylo Ren The Force Awakens/The Last Jedi Edits

I created some of these edits and GIFs a while ago but I decided to do something different with them.

Here’s one with text on a path:

Here’s a GIF with a the image above as an overlay:

And the newest version of this image still as motion art

Age of Republic – Darth Maul 1 Animation

I made another edit because as you know, I love to create animated edits of art I like in the Star Wars universe and it’s kinda been my thing. But I am not happy with this edit at all. I dunno what it is, I regret posting it now. My problem is I look at something, it can be a painting, a digital image, a poem or just about anything like that and I’ll envision how it would sound or look. Then I try to replicate what I see and sometimes, it doesn’t always come out the way I’d like.

The artist is the amazing Paolo Rivera whom I don’t have enough praise for:

To compensate for this, I went on this really crazy Darth Maul bender and ended up with another two animations, and an image edit which I think came out exactly as I wanted it to. I’ll post it tomorrow along with the other animations I made.

Also, I think I might start writing a little bit more about work again since they blocked my website. 😂It seems there is something unsavoury about the URL darksiderconfessions which I find hilarious!

I’ve been a busy little beaver!

As you know, I created a new IG account for Star Wars is poetry and I’ve been busy making graphics for that, one a day is my goal so far. But I’ve also been doing a few animations in my spare time as well.

On the writing front, I’m still working on my two stories/fanfics and they’re slowly coming along. All in all, I’ve been quite happy with my progress. I’ve even found a few tutorials I want to do so I should be getting onto that next which I’ll upload here, of course.

Here’s my latest animation, someone on Pinterest sent this to me, so I thought “Hey, why not animate it?” and so I did. The artist is Maksym Rudek, and it’s a lovely image of Kylo Ren circa The Force Awakens:

And here’s one of the edits I made for Star Wars is Poetry:

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker “Moody” art by Isatonic

I fell instantly in love with this piece when I saw it – it’s so unique as I haven’t really seen any art with both Rey and Darth Vader in the same image. And I’ve featured art by Isatonic before on my blog so I guess you could say I’m a devoted fan 😁

Here’s the animated version I did just now which I had to resize for social media:

Isn’t it gorgeous though?

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker Poster – Animated Edition

I really feel like I’m back to being myself again, and I can barely contain my energy to create things. So far in one and a half days I’ve managed to write another article for Dork Side of the Force which is ready for publishing, created one image edit and two animated edits. I also felt randomly inspired and wrote a poem while I was out at the mall earlier today, and I’ve got two short stories on the go at once, one is very much a fan-fic and the other I think I could flesh out into an actual story.

As time’s gone by, I’ve learned to cherish the days when I feel energetic and creative. If there’s one thing being a writer and creative person has taught me, it’s to count the days you have to create as precious. You won’t feel that way every day, so it’s good to try and remember that, it’s good for me and my process anyway.

So here’s my first animation from a newly released star wars fan-made poster with art by phase_runner. This animation took me longer than expected, but I was pleased with the result, and the art is just stunning.

Star Wars Art by Mishie Chua – is AMAZING!

This art is beautiful on its own, but for continuity, I made a minimal edit to separate these images from the mural here:

Kylux Animation – Kylo and General Hux

I’ve never posted anything relating to Kylux on this blog because I’m not really into the ship at all but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate someone else’s artistic genius. I stumbled upon this on Tumblr today and I just couldn’t believe how beautifully touching and moving it was… I mean you need to look beyond the aesthetic and to the simplistic yet emotional narrative occurring between the two characters.

This artist on Tumblr created these images of Kylo Ren and General Hux lying in their bed, Kylo with his back to Hux and facing the wall. There are only a few words shared in the images but it’s a very powerful exchange that I just couldn’t ignore. I had to do something with this beautiful art.

So I created a small movie clip in Microsoft Photos. I wanted a change from using Adobe software and wanted to go as bare bones as possible. I created an MP4 out of the clip and added a little atmospheric music to it. I think it makes such an impact, it’s so sad and tragic yet beautiful all at the same time. I think the music helps to deliver that, I dunno, that’s what I think anyway. If you want to check out the original art it’s here.

Here’s my animation:
