When the Creative Bug Gets Hold – More Star Wars Creations

I think I’m going through a very creative phase right now. I mean, I’ve always had the creative bug in some form or another. Being a writer, I guess for me anyway, there has always been a connection to art and the appreciation of art. Unfortunately for me, the straight up truth is I sucked quite badly at anything artistic at school and I’ve never had a single art lesson other than learning how to paint by numbers when I was about 4 and learning how to draw stick figures when I was about 14. So everything I do or create comes purely from a love of creating things and not from any true talent – not in the sense that I’d think of myself as an artist because I definitely don’t.

I made a “reylo thing” – having fun in Microsoft Photos

I’ve had a lot of time to muck around lately as I’ve been pretty much bed-ridden for the last week or so with the Flu. As you can tell, my weekly posting of SWTOR content has been non-existent but now that I feel a lot better, I’ll be resuming those posts soonish. I’ve been getting back into making and creating things – I used to create gifs and images quite often too but stopped when I deactivated by Tumblr account a couple of years back.

Here’s a little clip I put together using Microsoft Photos. I had fun playing around with all the different settings and animation effects you can use.

Please note: the above artwork is not my own, artist unknown – I only edited and enhanced the original image using Microsoft Photos.
