Knarf and Shadie Face-Off (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Knarf, Shadie and Relsor are main characters in my Star Wars fan-fictions series, which takes place in the Old Republic era. Knarf and Shadie have a face-off, while Relsor, the True Sith Chiss master, watches on.

This was a more elaborate image to put together. First I place my husband and me in the SWTOR background. We had anticipated such scenes when we took our photos together. The next step was adjusting the colour and lighting to our bodies. Then I slapped on the armour on Knarf’s body. I had to use various layers of armour with multiple Puppet Warps to get the positioning right.

My lightsaber was easiest. I had my DIY premade hilt in hand, and angling the blade wasn’t too difficult. Again, outer glow on Blade and Glow layers with some blurs and such, having started with a rounded rectangle, was how I got the lightsabers. I had to find a hilt for Knarf, and the blade was easy.

Now, placing Relsor, was another story. I took a screenshot from SWTOR, of the character I had created in-game, removed Relsor from the background there and resized him. Resizing just right and positioning him was a bit trickier than I had anticipated. I wish I had been able to place some shadow for all three characters, but I haven’t figured out how to create a body shadow and get it the way I need to go. So I gave up on the shadow.

As always, I’m open to feedback.
