Shadie Holds Her Blade As A Staff (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Shadie is one of the main characters from my Star Wars fan-fiction series which takes place in the Old Republic era. She is a Jedi and her lightsaber has the unique ability to be able to be powered on as either a single blade, or as a staff, which can be quite effective in combat.

The hilt was created using craft foam and acrylic paint. It’s a DIY. Placing my cosplay image onto a SWTOR background was easy. The lightsaber was created with rounded rectangle and outer glows and blurs. I’m not entirely sure I successfully got the blade and my body proportionate to each other and to the background.

As always, I’m open to feedback.

Relsor’s Dual Lightsabers (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Relsor is a main character and villain from my Star Wars fan-fictions series, which takes place in the Old Republic era. He is Chiss and from the True Sith faction.

I had fun playing around with the lihgtsabers here. What was tricky was that the background has some light on one side, so I had to make the glow of one of the blades more potent. Giving more potency to the blade in the darkness was too intense, and since it was such small adjustments, I couldn’t get it quite right. I’m wondering if I could have tried another tool and layer to give the wanted result. I also used hilts that I inserted into the image. I used an in-game character from SWTOR as Relsor and a SWTOR screenshot as my background.

Here is Relsor in the same pose with his lightsabers powered off. Lighting effects in the above image make a huge difference to changing the background’s colour and the subject’s colour. The trick is to be subtle when necessary. Though I’m still mastering the art.

Fane & Talyc Are Challenged on Coruscant (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Fane and Talyc are main characters from my Star Wars fan-fiction series, which takes place in the Old Republic era. Fane is a Jedi and Shadie’s apprentice, with an aqua coloured lightsaber. Talyc Kandera is a Mandalorian from Clan Kandera. Both these characters discover something about themselves on Coruscant, which sort of challenges them in a way, but of course, you’ll have to read the story to know what that is.

Fane and Talyc both were created in-game of Dragon Age: Inquisition. I had something specific in mind that only the elaborate character creation of DAI could give me. For Talyc, I slapped armour on his body and added a scar on his nose. For Fane, I kept part of the Inquisitor’s tunic, and added Jedi armour, using colour replacement tools for both characters.

The screenshots I use from SWTOR as backgrounds for these are from my Coruscant stronghold. It was the perfect fit. We don’t see much of Fane’s lightsaber, but I plan on using more screenshots in the future for future stories, where we can see Fane in a more elaborate fighting stance.

Doing cosplay with a mix of SWTOR gear and backgrounds is one thing, and using SWTOR in-game characters to embody my story’s characters was simple. This was the first time I mixed games and “cross-played” to fanfic cosplay characters, so I was’t sure what the end result would be. I plan on advancing my skills in the future to create improved photos.

As always, I’m open to feedback.

Trylia & Brenum Fight defend Coruscant (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

Brenum and Trylia are main characters in my Star Wars fan-fiction series, which takes place in the Old Republic era. Brenum is human and Trylia is Togruta, both are Jedi.

As per my description of Trylia, she has a purple staff lightsaber. Again I used an in-game character from SWTOR, changing the colour of her skin and lekku with the colour replacement tool. I used Puppet Warp for her arms, to position them the way I needed them to be. As usual, for the lightsaber, I inserted a hilt in the image, careful to erase the parts that need to be behind her hand, and used rounded reactable with outer glows and blurs for the lightsaber itself. Lighting effects enhanced the SWTOR screeshot background.

I did similarly for Brenum,with the blades and background. Since part of the background has shadow, and each blade is a different colour, I had to get creative and layer my background and play around with lightning effects in that way. I wanted to ensure the yellow got its area lit yellow, and the blue blade got its area lit blue. For Brenum, I used a screenshot as well, and I was lucky to have videos of him doing backflips and such, for I used one of those, which give a cool fighting stance, I find.

As always, I’m open to feedback.
