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.

Shadie and Knarf Cosplay (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Shadie and Knarf are the main characters of my Star Wars fan-fictions series, which takes place in the Old Republic era. Shadie is my alter ego, and Knarf is my husband’s. To cosplay them was fun, and we took many photos for me to play around with.

I had created a costume for myself, so I did not need to slap on any armour onto my photo. I simply needed to remove myself from the photo onto a new background, a screenshot from SWTOR. As always, I used various adjustments to ensure the colour and brightness fit.

Same thing with Knarf for this photo, but again I slapped on the armour for him, using the colour adjustment tool to alter its colour.

As always, I’m open to feedback.

Relsor attempts to corrupt Knarf (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Relsor is another character from my Star Wars fan-fiction series, which takes place in the Old Republic era. Knarf is Shadie’s husband, human. Relsor, also known as Haar’elso’rothmor, is Chiss, and a True Sith.

As usual, for Knarf, I used a cosplay picture of my husband, slapped on the armour in Photoshop, used colour replacement tool, and some Puppet Warp and Liquify to get the armour and body in the position I wanted it to be.

For Relsor, I used a screenshot of a character I had previously created in SWTOR. The lightsaber Knarf holds was created with the rounded rectangle tool and a mix of outer glows on a Blade and on a Glow layer. The background is again a screenshot from SWTOR.

A simple image of Relsor, where I don’t remove him from the background and put him on another, is an actual screenshot from the SWTOR game. There is a reason he is captivity here. In the third image, he is in a new background, which I also altered with colour correction and lighting effects.

Relsor has got to be one of my more complex characters in this series, with many layers to him, secrets to be discovered, even my him, a complicated past. He’s the main villain in the series for may stories to come.

Knarf and Talyc on Mandalore (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Agent Knarf and Talyc Kandera of Clan Kandera are original characters, and main characters, from my Star Wars fan-fiction, which takes place in the Old Republic era. Agent Knarf is Shadie’s husband, hence my husband cosplays as him. Talyc is Knarf’s best friend in the series.

My husband and I had a lot of fun taking a great deal of cosplay photos, in character, with various poses. I used images of an armour set from SWTOR in Photoshop to fix to his body, using the colour replacement tool to give the colours I wanted.

For Talyc, his armour goes through the same process but I created him in Dragon Age Inquisition. That’s right, he’s an Inquisitor to begin with. I had something very specific in mind for him, so I went in-game to create him with the DA elaborate character creation, and used screenshots of him from some recorded gameplay footage. I added the subtle scar on his nose in Photoshop afterwards.

In the image, Knarf and Talyc are on Mandalore, in one of the bunkers used for meetings. In actuality, it’s a screenshot from SWTOR. Putting these images together, mixing fanfic, game and cosplay really gives me the freedom to create the characters I want.

As always, I’m open to feedback.
