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!

Luke Skywalker Edit #3

“Luke is Hope” – EDIT by Me

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 😄😁

Star Wars Motion Art Update – Star Wars Galaxy Topps Cards

It’s been way too long since I updated this website with motion art or any art that I’ve done recently. Again, I’ve let these things lapse and I’m not really sure why 🙁 I have promised to update this site more regularly but I’m trying to figure out how I should do that with my art/motion art/adobe posts for the foreseeable future. I’ve contemplated creating a separate site for my art and moving everything over. But that would take a lot of time (which I don’t have) and yet one more blog I’d have to maintain.

So I’m still thinking on that for now. Until I decide what I want to do with my motion art edits and adobe posts, I’ll just keep updating here for now.

Here are a couple of motion art edits I did of Topps Star Wars Galaxy cards I saw on Instagram. I have a friend who posts updates of the cards he collects (and he collects A LOT) and every now and then I see some that are just so pretty like these two:

And this one which I did today:

The one above is so pretty with Luke becoming one with the cosmos and the stars in his hair 😍🥰

Let me know how you’ve all been getting on – I can’t even tell you how stressful and trying my life has been lately but basically I was made redundant along with six of my team mates 😰😥😓 I’ll talk about it at some point but not any time soon as it’s still a little raw to think about right now 😡🤬

Anyway, STAY SAFE out there everyone! If you’ve done anything at all creative or arty, let me know!

See you in the next post!

Star Wars Artist Showcase – Tom Jung

Hello Star Wars friends! Here’s another interesting Star Wars artist for today’s post. Hopefully, if I get time, I’ll be adding various Star Wars artist clips to social media and here. This took me a while to make mostly because I completely forgot how to edit clips in Filmora 😅😂

I’ve noticed a surge in Instagram spammers recently who leave comments on your images to follow other accounts for art promotion. I won’t be doing that as I find that so irritating. But my goal was always to try and support star wars art on IG and that’s where my focus lies (as well as making my own stuff from time to time).

VIDEO MADE BY DARKSIDE CREATIVE

 

I hope you liked this art and enjoyed my video! I hope you are all getting through the week okay and keeping safe!

Catch you in tomorrow’s post or in the comments!

Star Wars Art – Starkiller and Original Star Wars Art

I’ve been sorely neglecting my blog in terms of art-related content. But I intend to get back into doing it more regularly (so many plans, lol). Now that we are in a nationwide lockdown that doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon, I will have more time to dedicate to my blogging.

I haven’t been making many motion art/GIFs and animations either, and I’m not sure why that is. So I’ll be creating stuff when I feel like creating; otherwise, it just doesn’t feel the same. It feels fake when I try and force myself to do something.

Here is some motion art I did recently with original art from Greg Hildebrandt:

And an edit someone else did of an original piece of art from artist Meduzarts Animation Studio.

Original art:

Art by Louis Gilles Montagne

And the edit someone did of Starkiller:

No idea who did this edit, but it looks great as motion art!
EDIT BY UNKNOWN – ANIMATED BY ME

I also did an .MP4 version with a sound like rain falling, but that file is huge, so I didn’t want to upload that here (and break people’s computers with resource lag, lol).

What have you been up to lately? Let me know in the comments all about your creative pursuits! Catch you in the next post; stay safe out there, friends!

My Favourite Piece of Star Wars Art 2021 – “Size Matters Not” by Russell Walks

Hi everyone! I’m back with another awesome Star Wars post – well, I dunno if it’s awesome, but I certainly feel awesome looking at this amazing art by Russell Walks 😍🥰😘.

Here’s the artist’s Twitter post about this amazing poster that he made for the SDCC!

Hey! Here’s the new Luke and Grogu piece I created for my pals @intltrends called “Size Matters Not”. Man, you guys, I feel so lucky to be able to play in such a wonderful galactic sandbox. #starwars #TheMandalorian #grogu #LukeSkywalker

ART BY RUSSELL WALKS

Originally tweeted by Russell Walks (@Russellwalks) on July 24, 2021.

FIRST OF ALL, how amazing is this art? Am I right? I mean, look at it!! Secondly, how amazing is this art lol 😅😆

It was on sale apparently via a website called Trends International, which is right here. But when I checked, it was gone – or at least I couldn’t find it on the first few pages I looked through. I even did a search for the artist and came up with nothing. So my guess is that it was in so much demand, they had to sell whatever they had and take it off the site for fear of breaking the website 😅😆

I remember seeing the art from this artist a while ago, and I forgot how beautiful it is. So I’ve decided that to celebrate payday tomorrow, I will buy one of Russell Walks’ artworks, and I’ve chosen this one (since the one above looks to be all sold out).

Isn’t this also so beautiful? I am absolutely in love with this one!

ART BY RUSSELL WALKS

THERE is so much to love about this poster. The colours are so lovely, and in sync with each other, the image looks exactly like the photo still from the film, A New Hope is my favourite Star Wars movie and Luke my favourite Star Wars character 😍🥰😘 It’s just gorgeous, but I want to stop gushing about Luke now 😅😆

Have you ever bought any art from your favourite artist or any movie posters for your favourite films? I am anticipating some of you definitely have! I have bought a few in my time of favourite Star Wars characters and movies I like (as I am a HUGE movie buff!), but this one seems kind of special since there are only 1977 (the year A New Hope released, by the way!) copies of it!

Let me know in the comments, people – what is your favourite poster or art for Star Wars? Send me some pics or links so I can check them out! Looking forward to it 😊😉
