The Big Clean-Up Project – Part I

I’ve wanted to make an official post about this project of mine for some time. Still, I’ve either been too busy with other life stuff OR too lazy 😅 The thing is, though, I’ve been putting this off for a long time, and I know that my site is not going to get any better if I don’t start cleaning up the content. I know it has a crapload of content to sift through, and I won’t have to update all of it. I am just looking to move content I don’t want on this blog to my other blogs if the content is a fit (like movie reviews I don’t want on this blog) and general upkeep such as linking back to all of my images, edits etc. on Pinterest for maximum exposure (at least that is my goal!) As well as this, I will be updating the permalinks and URLs, so they are short and simple. A lot of my links are really long and don’t work well with SEO.

I wanted to start with an update of a poetry edit I made a while ago as I came up with a different graphic and look for the image which I originally blogged about on the 14th of October, 2019. I wrote a poem from Leia to Ben called “The Light”, which then turned into a graphic and has now been updated to a GIF and a better graphic lol because I kept changing my mind about what I wanted it to look like.

Here’s the graphic I made in October with the poem added:

And here’s the updated graphic I made on Tuesday:

And the GIF I made:

So that’s one thing I wanted to update for ages, and now I’ve finally done it. 😁 I am interested to see how well it does on Pinterest because these types of graphics are huge there!

I’ll be continuing the clean-up and blogging as I go. Thanks for reading; stay safe out there, and I’ll catch you in my next post, Star Wars friends!

Kylo Ren Edits – The Rise of Skywalker

I’ve always really liked this close-up image of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren on Pasaana so I’ve used it in several edits but these are the latest ones I made on my phone:

I also didn’t realise until now that this is the actual quote from the film that Kylo Ren says to Rey which really surprised me. I didn’t realise that his words were “because I needed to see you”… (REYLO ALERT!)

And yes, I like my GIFS HUGE if anyone was wondering 😂😂

Feel free to share on social media if you like and spread the Darkside Creative love around for everyone!

Until the next post, stay safe out there and keep creating!

The Pull to the Light – Kylo Ren Animation

I’ve spent some time organising my motion art, GIFs and video clips on Pinterest because I have amassed quite a few over the year or so that I’ve been making them. I thought just one board looked too cluttered and now I can see exactly how many I’ve made and what I’ve made.

While GIF-making was not new to me, creating motion art was something new that I started to enjoy and thought “why not?” Just with anything that’s new, I can see that some of the images I made weren’t as polished as they could have been now that I’ve been making them for a couple years. So I am using some of those original images I created as Motion Art and I’m improving them, at least I think I am 😂

Here’s one I remember making and I liked it at that time, but I decided to improve it. I see Kylo Ren’s struggle in this image, the shadows behind him but still part of him, with the light still there, trying to penetrate the shadow. Turning it into motion art was a pleasure. I also edited the original image extensively as I didn’t like how “washed” out and over-exposed the original image looked. When I first made this motion art I didn’t even notice that the original image was over-exposed. I guess I have learned a few things along the way 😊

Star Wars Edits – Kylo Ren Art by Unknown

I found this Kylo Ren art piece when I was trying to find images for Pinterest and I decided I liked it so much I would animate it. The style reminds me a lot of Venamis (Eli Hyder) on Instagram but it doesn’t look like it’s his so I have no idea who to credit this art to… I tried reverse images searches using several search engines and came up blank. I tried to make out the signature, it looks like NianTu but I didn’t want to credit incorrectly 🙁

Here’s the art in question:

And here is my animated edit which I saved from a different website before I had found the image above. Looks like someone cropped out the artist’s name 😡

Sith Code Redesign – Final (finally)

After further deliberation over the colours mainly, the font and colour for the font, I came to the conclusion that the lighter Red may fit well with the palette, but it did not do anything positive for the poster as a whole. So I completely ditched the bright red for a much darker red named Red Oxide via Name That Color. This is the final palette for the poster:

And here is the final animated poster (with firey sparkly background)

And without (because I couldn’t decide which one I liked more)

What do you think? Do you like one more than the other and if so, why? I’d be keen to hear your thoughts, friends 🙂
