Fane and Talyc Married and Separated (SWTOR Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Ah, my two favourite characters of the series, my favourite couple and dynamic. Force-user Fane and Mandalorian Talyc. Both have armour and clothes from SWTOR, BUT their heads/faces are from Dragon Age: Inquisition. Characters I created to depict them. So I had to adjust Talyc’s nect here to fit with the body, and I had to change the colour of Fane’s clothes using the Colour Replacement Tool.

Then I put them on a background. Here, they are newly married.

They are not separated by choice, as you may have read, but forced apart when Fane is taken by the Reformed Sith. I had multiple layers here for the arms and legs and the lightsaber of the Sith capturing and pinning Fane down. Again, I changed the colour of what Fane is wearing, a more formal version of his usual tunic. And I added multiple layers of glow from lightsabers that I attached to the various layers of Fane’s face and clothes to varying degrees to give the desired effect.

Talyc bare chested was interesting to do. I use his face from DAI, and stuck it on a body of a stock image photo. However, I had to adjust the lightning, the angles, and blend the necks together using various toold. After that, it was a question of adjusting the lighting.

That’s for his body. As for the background, the original is bight daylight. I had to lower the light, add a lot of magenta and blue, lower saturation, and lower brightness and contrast both to varying degress. And I had to do this differently for the sky than for the grass and tree. It took a while, but it wasn’t complicated.

And I always ensure to remember to add Talyc’s small and subtle scar. It’s there, you might not see it, but when it’s not there, his face just doesn’t look right.

As always, I’m open to feedback.

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.
