Jedi Council and Allies (SWTOR Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

The Jedi Council always makes the occasional appearance in my Protectors of the Force SWTOR fanfic series. Most notably, the Jedi Masters who appear in this image. Master Quar’zun (left) is a character I created in SWTOR to depict him. Grand Master Herl’unik (centre) and Master Shargall (right), are alsow SWTOR character models of mine.

I used a screenshot of a Jedi Council chair, placed each on a Coruscant background, and placed each Jedi Master before each chair.

For Lian and Lord Void shaking hands, I had o get a bit creative. Both are characters I created in SWTOR, so I had them do movements that would raise their arms. Then I had to further move their arms a bit with various tools in Photoshop to adjust and make it look legit. I wasn’t able to get them to actually clasp hands, but this does the trick and conveys the message of their newfound friendship.

This was another simple image, with Void doing a Mood Emote of surprise, and then placing him on a new background. And between you and me, I’m glad Void is now officially an ally and friend.

Protectors and Oppressors (SWTOR Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Storimbu is the leader of the remnants of the Followers of Kromus who seeks a new purpose. He appears in Story 10 first, and becomes the leader of the Protectors of the Force. He is most often accompanied by the unnamed Kaleesh, Drashdae, the Sith Pureblood, and Kafter, the yellow Twi’lek.

Storimbu’s character model is my character from SWTOR named Alagos, which means Lightning in Sindarin. Alagos and Storimbu both are lightning sorcerers. I created character models in SWTOR for Drashdae and Kafter both, and used a Kaleesh companion to depict Kaleesh. Then, I simply placed them on the background screenshot of the Sith Academy on Korriban.

Here are Awgro and Mar Dalkars, character models also from SWTOR, alsto easily placed o a background.

While these images may have been the simplest, it still required adjusting the lighting and colour of each character to fit the background, along with the usual border of light around the character. Doing this used to be a challenge, and I’m glad that it is now a very simple matter for me to put together such images to bring my characters to life.

Shadie and Knarf (SWTOR Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

I created characters in SWTOR for Shadie and Knarf, because Hubby and I can’t always cosplay them. It gives a bit more wriggle room to get creative with them down the line. I found an armour set that fit Shadie well, glasses for Knarf. He’s letting his hair grown, so you will see the evolution throughout the next couple of stories.

And then I placed them on a background of Korriban, and adjuted their light and colour so they fit with the scene.

I love doing lightsabers in Photoshop, I’ve gotten quite good at them, if I do say so myself, and this story image for Trials in the Force is Shadie’s lightsaber, because as the Lady of the Crypt, the Protectors of the Force become officially named because of her. I use three layers now for my lightsabers, for extra glow but at various intensities and it works well.

Knarf’s hair is growing and he has changed his armour. Here he is on Rylith. Eventually, he’ll lose the glasses too. This was mostly an exercise of adjusting the colour on him and finding the right colour tones to adjust with, given that Ryloth is vibrant with as many purples and pinks as it is greens and blues.

Relsor and His Demise (SWTOR Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Maranna is another new antagonist, and depicted by the SWTOR character of the same name. Here Maranna and Relsor are sharing an intimate moment. I basically took their gear off and took screenshots. I moved Relsor’s arm a bit and tilted his head. This image otherwise required a very basic edit.

For Relsor contemplating his fate, I merely took a screenshot of my character Shadyer sitting on his ship. I made a few quick adjustments in Photoshop, and that was it for this one.

Relsor dueling Fane was a bit more complex than I anticipated because of the dual lightsabers Relsor wields and the position I had him in, and wanted him in. Still, I moved his arms and played around with the lightsaber enough to get to seem like I wanted.

Fane’s arms needed moving, but I use a basic combat stance to begin with. I always enjoy doing lightsabers and adjusting their reflections onto the characters wielding them.

Those of you who read the Epilogue, now understand why Lord Void crouched before Relsor’s body and uttered the final phrase of the Sith Code, “Through victory, my chains are broken.” All throughout the novellas since Void’s introduction, I have been dropping hints as to his actual relationship with Relsor and who Relsor is to him.

It feels sad though, the end of Relsor. He was one of my favourite antagonists. But there are others, some now introduced, and some not yet introduced. Relsor’s legacy will live on with the True Sith, and with other very important characters.

In SWTOR, I had Shayder faint to get this position. I added the lightsabers on the ground, and played around with adding shadow here. Lord Void is in a kneel-crouch, which I did in-game as well.

Relsor’s saga has ended, but Maranna is at large, Awgro is still after Talyc, and the masked True Sith who keeps popping up impromptu is a powerful Force-user with yet-to-be-revealed ties to one of the Jedi. I’ve also got another set of exciting allies to introduce in the next novella story, so stay tuned for that; the ultimate adventures for the heroes has only just begun and they don’t even know it.

As always, I’m open to feedback.
